    [–] 0L Tuesday Thread - - April 23, 2019 Chanel1202 4 points ago in LawSchool

    Large firms still hire K-JDs, but they tend to favor those with work experience.

    [–] How much do you think the character Annalise Keating would make annually? Chanel1202 12 points ago in htgawm

    She likely makes way more than 100K for being a full law professor at a prestigious school like Middleton. I’m a law student now and there are full law profs (not assistant or associate profs) that make 400-500K a year. The assistant law profs make 200K. I bet she makes 250-300K teaching and then another 100-200 as a lawyer (before joining the firm). Once she joins the firm I’d say she makes another 500-750K a year easily.

    She does pretty well for herself

    [–] My daughter is studying in England and met a super nice guy. Internet points please! Chanel1202 1 points ago in marvelstudios

    I saw the show this past Monday. When the scene you’re referring to ends, he gets up and brings her offstage and he stays off until He comes back and interrupts Jerry and a Emma in the last scene (when Jerry is confessing his “love” for Emma). He’s offstage for a solid 3-5 minutes or so.

    Fair. I’ve performed in theaters where there is a direct backstage connection to the lobby. I haven’t been backstage at the Harold Pinter theater, so my comment was based on knowing theaters do sometimes have corridors connecting backstage to the lobby. Though now that I think about it, the lobby is a level above the stalls/stage.

    But TIL so thank you!

    He actually leaves to take his daughter offstage and is then off for most of the last scene between Emma and Jerry. There are a good 3-5 mins there that this could happen in.

    [–] How Can They Have Money Problems? Chanel1202 7 points ago in Frasier

    That’s not how lawyers bill. Every phone conversation, time spent emailing, faxing etc. every minute spent on research or writing motions (a continuance is a motion btw and his lawyers would have to respond to Maris’ motions for continuance).

    They weren’t spending months doing nothing. There were months of phone calls back and forth, emails, discovery etc.

    And he could have lawyers that charge $1000 or more per hour.

    The US DOE report the article you linked discusses is what was issued in 2004.

    PA criminalized it in 2012.

    PLL premiered in 2010.

    You aren’t even looking at a law, you’re looking at commentary on disciplining teachers outside of the criminal justice system (i.e punishment to be handled by the employer, or within public school districts).

    Edit: here is the law that was amended to include sexual contact between institutional authority figures and their charges (students etc.) that is otherwise legal. The amendment went into effect in February of 2012.

    Additional source specifically citing the date the law went into effect: “Cumberland County District Attorney David Freed said during a news conference Friday that an amendment went into effect in February 2012 that covers this exact type of incident, which involves a student who is of legal age. The law, which was amended to include all sexual acts between students and teachers, despite age or consent, was a ‘reaction to increased incidents of sexual behavior with students over 16 and teachers through the state,’ he said.”

    Again, it’s not that the relationship between Ezra and Aria was, in any sense of the word, ok. It’s that it wasn’t illegal when the originally aired.

    Thanks, I’m the last one in this thread that needs a crash course on the law.

    When PLL first aired, it was not illegal for teachers to engage in sexual relationships with students that were at or above the age of consent.

    Those laws (institutional sex law in PA) are incredibly new (2012 in PA).

    The age of consent in PA is 16. Aria is at least 16 in the pilot, since we see her driving.

    It was not illegal in any sense of the word.

    Unethical? Yes. Immoral? Yes. Very poor judgment? Yes. Stupid? Yes. Something that should not be glorified? Yes.

    Illegal? Nope. Not even a little bit (at the time the show aired).

    [–] Ezria Chanel1202 -1 points ago in PrettyLittleLiars

    Probably because it wasn’t statutory rape. Aria was above the age of consent.

    Not saying their relationship is ok or something to glorify, but it certainly wasn’t illegal.

    Honestly it seems like the decision had been mostly made before the second part of your app was submitted.

    Don’t take it personally.

    [–] The plot line where Sookie asks Jackson to get a vasectomy and then he doesn’t & she gets pregnant again makes me SO angry. Like how dare he decide, out of pure laziness, what happens to her body?!!!!!!! Chanel1202 20 points ago in GilmoreGirls

    At the same time, how dare she decide, out of nowhere with no discussion with Jackson, what happens to his body? She schedules it without telling him and springs it on him. The nurse literally comes to take him to the surgery seconds after she tells him it’s happening, and she doesn’t appear to care about his opinion.

    [–] Which episode have you watched the most? Chanel1202 16 points ago in Frasier

    Probably not the most popular choice but I do love Room Service.

    I bet you’re really tired of having that thrown in your face.

    [–] Is a law degree worth it IF tuition wasn't a concern AND one doesn't intend to practice? Chanel1202 2 points ago in LawSchool

    You don’t get the Esq. unless you’re admitted to practice, which means going through all of the licensing exams (mpre and bar) and the bar application process. Why would you go through the work to be admitted to practice if you don’t want to practice? That’s absurd.
