Preços para produtos Embora a maioria das empresas gaste o tempo necessário para obter uma compreensão completa dos cálculos de preços para seus negócios domésticos, muitos não colocam o mesmo esforço quando se trata de seus mercados de exportação. Infelizmente, isso pode ter um efeito de fluxo na competitividade e na rentabilidade do negócio. Embora alguns exportadores simplesmente cobram seu preço doméstico sem pensar mais, aqueles que são b...

My worst nightmare by JD I entered the room to shake hands with an older man and a younger woman. The guy was the most evil person ever. It was only a 20 minute interview, but somehow he terrified me so much that he almost made me cry. First, he asked me why I was interested in working in DC (besides the fact that I am from the area). I was like “Well, you know, I like being in a big city, working alongside or near the federal government and g...

Let’s be honest. We all knew that the majestic, beige paper with our names and JD written in fancy letters comes with a price tag. NOT THIS JD THIS JD Complain all we want about how law schools duped us all, but at the end of the day, even with greater transparency with regard to employment and salary stats, quite a few of us would have signed up anyway with ambitions of high grades and dream jobs. However, one very significant cost, which at ...

The ABA Guidelines limit a law student’s ability to work more than 20 hours a week as a full time student. With tuition on the rise and many low-income applicants already suffering as a result, an additional limitation on the ability for students to earn money while studying would only add insult to injury.  Without the sprinkling down of ubiquitous scholarships, most students face crippling debt. Take the example of a working single mom who f...

JD v. MBA: Teaching Methodologies and Working with Lawyers
Law Schooled Evolution / 26 de agosto de 2017

In this podcast, a JD and MBA compare and contrast law and business school. CLICK THE FOLLOWING TO LISTEN TO:  JD v MBA     Heard round the block: If you, law student, want to have a client simulation course and learn to work in groups, take a course at the business school. If you think business school is so great, transfer to business school or get a JD/MBA. Law students need to learn more theory rather than skills because...

Technically, I’m Only Red-Green Colorblind
Law School Reform / 26 de agosto de 2017

I go to a really progressive school.  As in, my classmates keep the granola industry in business.  As in, I’ve been able to go through law school with a course schedule loaded up with social-justice and civil rights classes (I never took Secured Transactions!).  I think the majority of my classmates are well-meaning people who care about others. But there’s a saying about good intentions.  Something about hell and roads. As much as w...

Tuition Continues to Rise and Rise and Rise and Rise . . .
Law School Reform / 26 de agosto de 2017

Law school tuition continues to rise into the stratosphere. Though not new or surprising, considering lowered employment rates and the controversy surrounding law school employment data, the continued rise in tuition begs just a few, friendly questions. When students no longer can count on high paying jobs after graduation, how can law schools justify raising tuition at the same rate or even at all? As future applicants consider law ...

The ABA Limit on Student Work Hours

What happened to Justice?
Law School Reform / 26 de agosto de 2017

In the past while, I have experienced confusion when bringing up the concept of justice to my fellow law students.  While it seemed like a bit of a stretch, I thought that perhaps justice lived at the very heart of law.  The confusion came when I started to note two ideas:  (1) justice is not a necessary element of law and (2) justice already has been defined by the law.  I suppose this ought to be where I define justice.  For me per...

Values and Skills
Law School Reform / 26 de agosto de 2017

Recently, I came across Professor Daniel Pollitt’s paper from 1973, entitled “Preliminary Proposal for a Public-Service Oriented Law School.”  I appreciate his vision at that time for a quality law school, and in particular, one of his paragraphs stood out for asking for something that schools do not seem to emphasize anymore: “At most law schools, emphasis is put upon the acquisition of skills.  At the proposed law school, emphasis ...

“Do you have a job yet?” – A Culture of Silence
Law Schooled Evolution / 26 de agosto de 2017

Most 3Ls who don’t live under a rock get it.  You don’t ask about it, and you don’t brag if you got one.  However, 1Ls and 2Ls often enthusiastically and optimistically bust out with the question:  ”So, do you have a job yet?” up until they hit the summer job hunt season for their year, when they start to learn the culture of silence.  Then, there are the practicing attorneys and sometimes even professors, who seem to live in another...
