Sweet City Signs

Sometimes I can be having a bad day and spot a sign like this and it instantly turns around. This great sign was spotted in Bloomingdale.

Congrats to Mr. McCall!

  • Funny, there was a similar bed sheet sign for this guy on P St between New Jersey and 5th St.

    • yep … along with all those fish kites. $10 says his first case is fighting the neighborhood housing association. 😉

  • Love it! Congrats to all graduates!

  • that is awesome.

  • I hate to ask this…

    … But what do you do with a JD from UDC?

  • I’m serious. It costs a lot of money to get a law degree. It’s very hard to get one without looking over the horizon at your potential law career.

    My question remains, where do UDC law grads get jobs?

      Its actually not the greatest law school in the country, but it is definitely not the worst. A lot of the people tend to go into law practices that tend to help the disenfranchised. They actually do a lot of work in DC helping people that probably can not afford lawyers.

      • It’s not even an accredited law school. It’s degree is essentially meaningless, you can’t even take the bar.

        • From the website posted above

          ACCREDITATION: The School of Law is fully accredited by the American Bar Association. For accreditation information, contact the American Bar Association Section on Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, 321 North Clark Street, 21st Floor, Chicago, IL 60654; Tel: 312-988-6743.

        • I would expect someone with the screen name CoHi to be misinformed.

        • The UDC David A. Clarke School of Law got its full accreditation in 2005. Before that, from its beginning as the DC School of Law, it had “provisional” accreditation, meaning that all its graduates could take any bar exam.

          While public service law is the School’s speciality, and many graduates go to work for non-profits and government agencies, a slim majority of its graduates go into small or solo practice, mostly in the DC/MD/VA area, but many scatter around the country.

  • LOW TUITION: UDC-DCSL is one of the most affordable law schools in the nation. Tuition rates for full-time students are $7,350 per year for D.C. residents and $14,700 for non-District residents. Tuition rates for part-time students are $250 per credit hour for District residents and $500 per credit hour for non-District residents. Students living in D.C. for one year are eligible for the D.C. tuition rate.

    This year US News and World Report ranked UDC’s David Clarke School of Law tenth in America – out of 188 ABA accredited law schools analyzed – for clinical legal education.

    US New’s analysis also found that UDC was tied for second in the nation in overall diversity of its law students and had the fifth highest percentage of African American students (29%).

    In keeping with our mission of training attorneys for public service careers, a disproportionate number of graduates take positions in that sector. Statistics for the Class of 2008 reveal that 14.3% took public interest positions, compared with the national average of 5.4%; 21.4% of the class took local or federal government positions, compared to 11.9% nationally; and 9.5% took judicial clerk positions; the national average is 9.6%. Nearly 30% of our graduates accepted jobs in the private sector, most of whom went to work at small law firms representing individuals, families and community businesses. Nearly 5% are continuing their legal education in advanced degree programs, compared with the national average of 2.4%.
