Can you believe there are only 3 more days of SA?  Wow!  The blur that is Summer Academy seems to go faster and faster each year.  How can we only have 3 days left?

Tomorrow we will work on our client's marital termination agreement, meet our new client, and work on our Edu Law research project.  There will also be time given for work on office maintenance.  

Tuesday is the open house and we will wrap up our divorce case and work hard on the other two projects.

Wednesday we will start with a bit...

Those Pesky Clients

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Monday, June 22, 2015,
Keeping your client happy is not always easy.  But, they are the ones who pay you so you need to advocate for them once you take their case whether you want to or not.  Hmm...some of you found that hard to do today.  

Remember that we go on a field trip again on Thursday and you need to decide by tomorrow whether or not you want the FREE lunch that the school provides.  We will take your lunch orders tomorrow.  Check with mom and dad and see what they say.

Tomorrow 1. Contract between students ...

Office Building and Capture the Flag Friday

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Friday, June 19, 2015,
How did office building go?  Did you have enough time?  I can't wait to see the offices.
How did golf playing go?  Did you resolve your case over a friendly t-time?
How was Johnny as a sub?  Does he look and sound like Jim?
How...too many questions, not enough time.  I guess I will have to wait until I see you Monday unless you BLOG me!!  Blog me!
Did you get lots of billable time today?  Ha Ha  How was golf?  Lawyers probably do play golf with lawyer buddies to try to work things out, don't you ...

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Wednesday, June 17, 2015,
Here's what you need to know:

1.  You should wear your SA t-shirt
2.  You need a bag lunch.  You should bring your own unless you ordered a school lunch.  
3.  You can bring some money for "The Yogurt Lab" where you put sweets on yogurt and eat it!!  Yum.  Optional.
4.  SA is not over until 2:30.  It is a full day of travel for us.

We are going to the law firm of Gray, Plant and Mooty first, then the Yogurt Lab in the IDS, then Waldeck law firm, then the St. Thomas School of Law where we will eat ...

Day 2--Check!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Tuesday, June 16, 2015,
Office construction has begun.  Yikes, it smells like cardboard.  Also, we are short a bit of cardboard but no worries, SA always comes through and I am sure you will all get more cardboard on Friday.  Tomorrow we will meet and work hard for our new client and bill lots of hours, I'm sure.  Then on Thursday we have a field trip and on Friday, more office construction.

Emily and Lena are experts on Wednesday. So far nice job on experts, guys.  Love the props and video demonstrations.

Thursday is...

Happy SA 2015!!

Posted by Jamie Kovacs on Monday, June 15, 2015,
It was so exciting to meet you all today.  You were a really hard working, focused, eager and enthusiastic group.  I really enjoyed being your teacher.  I kept thinking "lucky me" all day long.  And aren't Maren and Ryan the nicest, most helpful, cheerful TA's ever?!  Ryan is back for his 3rd year as my TA and Maren took the class once and now is back to TA.  Maybe one of you will be my TA one day.

Remember that tonight you are to:

1.  Blog a comment and respond to someone else's blog comment.
