Last minute 2L class selection help?

Postby MrSam » Tue Jan 01, 2019 2:15 pm

I have pretty much locked in my classes for this coming semester. But, I'm having a bit of trouble deciding between 2 classes - Corporations and Con Law II.
I'm not interested in Biglaw and don't really see myself working for a firm, so I'm hesitant to take Corporations. Although, I have heard it's a useful class even for PI students. Absolutely hated Con Law I. I genuinely did not learn a single thing from that class because it felt more like a history course. I've heard Con Law II is completely different, but, still hesitant to take it.
I have already taken Crim Pro and Evidence.
Also, I have the opportunity to take either Corps or Con Law II as Pass/Fail. Would you all recommend doing so?

Not entirely sure. Neither are on any rating sites, and I don't know anyone who has taken one or the other. Possibly the Corps professor, since that class filled up rather quickly, whereas ConLaw II is still available.

What kind of PI do you want to practice?

Most interested in JAG (brother is a Judge Advocate and his work sounds absolutely fascinating) or working for a prosecutor's office.

Then unless you plan on doing white collar prosecution, do con law.

Would you mind commenting on how different con law 1 and 2 are (assuming you took con law 2)? I've heard some mention that con law 2 is just a continuation of con law 1, whereas others have said that they are two very different courses.
