By now, most 2Ls and 3Ls are bored with the task of observing neurotic neo- phytes (lLs) scurry in fear to their Criminal Law classes; and most of you lLs have now learned enough about personal jurisdiction to cause you to think twice about the career path you have chosen.

About two hours later, we fell under Chicago's spell and emerged onto the American Bar Association (ABA) Convention with a collective energy that would not quit.

Page 6 October 1995 Paulsen's punishment for the unprepared Civ Pro students wax poetic Professor Jim Paulsen's students are poets and didn't know it. Students in Professor Paulsen's classes have only one way of avoiding his wrath when they come unprepared to recite in class. Write a poem explaining why they are not ready. Paulsen's Civil Procedure students from this past spring were the guinea pigs for this new "literary" endeavor. The students were limited, however, to three poems for the semester. Paulsen was pleased enough with the results to continue the practice in his classes this semester. Here's a sampling of the poems stu- dents submitted in the Spring Civil Proce- dure class.

In the four installments given me by the Annotations, I hope to provide you with an idea of what it is like to study law in another country, As I learn that which constitutes a legal edu- cation in this, the home of the common law, so will you. The saying goes that every journey begins with a single step. I wish that it had been that simple. By the time my fourteen year old daughter, Chris, and I arrived at Lancaster University in north- ern England, we had used just about every method of trans- portation: car-p lane-train-cab- and bus, We dragged, carried, pushed, and plead with others to help us move 75 pounds of luggage each.

Lisa filed for divorce. Tommy threatened to kill her, and she believed him. Lisa's second baby lived. Tommy played mind games with her and threatened to do awful things to her child. One day, two of Lisa's co-workers offered to "work him over" and teach him a les- son about leaving Lisa alone. They beat Tommy to death. Lisa sadly told the au- dience, "It should not have come to this. It should not have come to a death. And the an- swer was not to have two guys beat him up either. I am not proud of my husband's death." Lisa went to prison on a 15-20 year term. She served 8 Vi years. She fired four court-appointed lawyers who would not spend the time nec- essary on her case. She advised the audience of law students that people in her position need an attorney who understands they really n...
