Need to write a Brief on a contract case. How do I find NJ court cases online, NJ judiciary seems to only post a handful of recent ones.
Better yet would be if legal briefs were available somehow... ;)

Google Scholar

You have to go to law school, pass the state bar, and pass the patent bar.

What specifically?

lol....thanks

now does anyone have personal experience?
I hear Columbia is a pretty good school. Not sure about for Patent law specifically though. NYU is the only other top tier school in the tri-state area. Besides those there's Cardozo and Fordham. (I hear Cardozo has some very prestigious graduates so that's a plus for them ;) )

You want to become a patent lawyer for sure?

Do you have a job set up or it's just something you want to do?

Cardozo is highly ranked in IP, I believe they're #1 in NY.

Cornell is also top tier, and is in tri-state.

As is Yale...

I'll be damned http://grad-schools.usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/best-graduate-schools/top-law-schools/intellectual-property-law-rankings  but http://www.sciencetolaw.com/beware-the-ip-law-rankings/

Cornell is also top tier, and is in tri-state.

As is Yale...


Are they really? Penn is way close than Cornell and 20 minutes further than Yale, is it also in the tri-state area?

I'd advise against Cornell FWIHear.

Tri-state = NY, NJ, and CT.

Not PA.

When a Jew asks for tri-state area I assume they mean near NYC. That said Commute to school is probably what they are interested in. I know a 2L at Penn who lives in Manhattan and commutes for class.

If you want to get a job and earn money, I don't think online is a good idea, and going to a good school would be a good idea. If it is an interest and you aren't worried about money/ obtaining a job then alternative means can be an option.
