Only 3 Days to go :(

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Sunday, June 29, 2014,
How fast did Summer Academy fly by this summer?  Oh my, let me catch my breath.  Other than the super early mornings which are super hard for me, the rest of this has been a breeze.  You are such a great, hard working, enthusiastic class.  It has been such a pleasure to be your teacher.

Here's what we have left:  tomorrow we will meet to "tion" with our opposing counsel in the bear custody case.  Then you will get a chance to write up an agreement if you reach one or a chance to go to court if...

State Your Appearance for the Record!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Wednesday, June 25, 2014,
Today you had your first court appearance. How did it go?  Everyone did a great job negotiating a settlement and I think you can all be very proud of your work in court.  Nobody seemed too nervous and even those of you who had a snafu or two ironed it out and worked through it and helped each other out.  Great to see!  

Tomorrow we will start to work hard on our custody case.  Can you believe the BEARS are getting divorced.  So sad.  They are like the nicest family in the world.  I guess it ca...

Are You Ready for Week 2?

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Monday, June 23, 2014,
In a mere 11.5 hours we will all be back at it.  We have briefs to write and oral arguments for Baker v. Sanji, we have a new case to learn about, glogsters to work on and journals to smash stuff in to.  Are you ready?  Did you rest this weekend?  Brace yourself, we have a full week ahead.

Remember, field trip on Thursday again.  We will be going to St. Thomas Law School, a small law firm and Gray, Plant and Moody.  We will also be stoping for ice cream, I hope.

See you tomorrow.  Mrs. Kovacs...

Field Trip Tomorrow

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Thursday, June 19, 2014,
Only 5 of you ordered a school lunch so please make sure you bring a lunch tomorrow.  You will be at SA from 8-2:30.  That would be a long day if you forget your food.

Tomorrow we will be going to the Ramsey County Gov't Center to watch court, talk to a judge, meet the county attorney and tour the building.  From there we will eat lunch on the bus as we travel to Minneapolis.  We will do a quick compare and contrast tour through the Hennepin County Gov't Center and then run through to the old ...

It's a Construction Zone In Here

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Wednesday, June 18, 2014,
Ryan wants to know if he needs to wear a hard hat tomorrow.  Ha Ha!  I hope he doesn't get hurt, we found out today that worker's comp won't help him!  

The offices are looking good.  There will be a bit of time to tweak them every day this week.  Be sure and add things that make them look office like--calendars on the wall, pictures of your family, desk caddies, file boxes and stuff like that.  If you have a brief case, bring it.  AJ mentioned that he was going to ask his dad about borrowing ...

Summer Academy 2014

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Monday, June 16, 2014,
Wow did we ever cram a lot into 4 short hours.  First there was the reading of the morning newspaper with lawyer jokes and everything.  Then there was a staff meeting where we learned all about each other as well as how to write a contract.  Then we wrote a contract.  Next we opened a file for our contract case and learned about the steps to becoming a lawyer.  Step one, do well in school, then college, then the LSAT, then Law School and finally the dreaded bar exam.  Then we took the bar exa...
