This Handbook provides a comprehensive guide for college students and high school seniors considering law school. It teaches how to build an undergraduate resume, how to gather information about law school and legal careers, how to prepare for the Law School Admissions Test (LSAT) and how to navigate the pitfalls of the law school application process. It also leads students through the law school curriculum, the central importance of the first year (1L), the roles played by Law Review, clinical programs, Moot Court, Mock Trial, interviewing, networking, summer associate positions and clerkships. Finally, it concludes with seven lessons to carry from law school into legal practice. This Handbook arises from the author’s two careers---one as a university professor and pre-law advisor, the other as a magna cum laude law school graduate and a successful practicing attorney. Along the way it conveys the author’s love of the law and admiration for the role of law in the United States. -Adopts a broader and longer perspective than any of its competitors, beginning with freshman year, and covering each year as an undergraduate, through law school admissions, the three years of law school, and into the beginnings of legal practice. -Provides useful, concrete and practical information including, lists of Dos and Don’ts, a Four Year Checklist, information about key resources, a step-by-step explanation of the law school application process, as well as a formula for selecting “competitive”, “safe” and “reach” law schools. -Presents detailed information about the law school curriculum each year, the importance of Law Review, clinical programs, Moot Court, interviewing skills, and summer associate positions. -Addresses current downsides to the practice of law in a more open way than any of its competitors, including the exhorbitant cost of law school, the difficulty repaying law school debt, the lack of opening legal positions in the wake of 2008, the high levels of job dissatisfaction in the profession, the stresses practice places upon a personal live. -Concludes with seven lessons to carry from law school into the practice of law.

Die Nacht von Paris Mattias Tannhäuser, ein deutscher Johanniter, macht sich nach Paris auf. Er sucht Carla, seine Frau. Dabei ist er in größter Sorge. Carla ist schwanger. Bei der Hochzeit zwischen Marguerite, der Tochter der Königin, und dem Hugenotten Henri, die vom französischen Königshaus arrangiert worden ist, um den Konflikt zwischen Protestanten und Katholiken zu befrieden, soll sie die Gambe spielen. Paris ist in Aufruhr. Überall gibt es Streitigkeiten und Kämpfe. Tannhäuser wird wegen seines Johanniterkreuzes häufig angefeindet und gerät schnell zwischen die Fronten. Hugenotten werden drangsaliert und schlagen zurück. Es ist die Bartholomäusnacht. Im königlichen Palast sucht Tannhäuser nach Carla. Doch sie, so hört er, soll sich bei einem Kaufmann aufhalten, der zu den Hugenotten gehört – und damit in größter Gefahr befinden. Für Tannhäuser beginnt eine wilde Jagd durch die Stadt – an seiner Seite nur ein paar Kinder, die in den Wirren unterzugehen drohen. Ein hochspannendes Epos über Glauben und Krieg – und die Macht der Liebe. „Willocks erzählt packend und zutiefst bewegend.“ Tanja Kinkel

“Satisfiability (SAT) related topics have attracted researchers from various disciplines: logic, applied areas such as planning, scheduling, operations research and combinatorial optimization, but also theoretical issues on the theme of complexity and much more, they all are connected through SAT. My personal interest in SAT stems from actual solving: The increase in power of modern SAT solvers over the past 15 years has been phenomenal. It has become the key enabling technology in automated verification of both computer hardware and software. Bounded Model Checking (BMC) of computer hardware is now probably the most widely used model checking technique. The counterexamples that it finds are just satisfying instances of a Boolean formula obtained by unwinding to some fixed depth a sequential circuit and its specification in linear temporal logic. Extending model checking to software verification is a much more difficult problem on the frontier of current research. One promising approach for languages like C with finite word-length integers is to use the same idea as in BMC but with a decision procedure for the theory of bit-vectors instead of SAT. All decision procedures for bit-vectors that I am familiar with ultimately make use of a fast SAT solver to handle complex formulas. Decision procedures for more complicated theories, like linear real and integer arithmetic, are also used in program verification. Most of them use powerful SAT solvers in an essential way. Clearly, efficient SAT solving is a key technology for 21st century computer science. I expect this collection of papers on all theoretical and practical aspects of SAT solving will be extremely useful to both students and researchers and will lead to many further advances in the field.”--Edmund Clarke (FORE Systems University Professor of Computer Science and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University, winner of the 2007 A.M.
