Current Law Students / Re: A Plaintiff v. Defendent Outline for Torts?

Im trying to figure out where you got this idea from...

Well, I did it for Crim Law, and got a B+. I figured since Torts is like Crim Law in the sense that you are dealing with common law, that maybe I could do it for this class.

Current Law Students / A Plaintiff v. Defendent Outline for Torts?

I am taking Torts now, and I thought that it would be a good idea to make an outline organized by Plaintiff v. Defendent for the final. Had anyone,taken this route and been successful at it? If so, do you have any suggestions as to this approach?
Thank you!

Any thoughts? The professor for the criminal law class that I taking focuses soley on the model penal code on the final exam. The textbook I am using is Crim Law and its Processes, and the professor acknowledges that it's the toughest casebook out there.
Thank you!

Incoming 1Ls / Re: Anyone still on the UCLA waitlist??

I'm on it.  I'm gonna stay on it till I get the rejection.

What I am trying to figure out is why they didn't outright reject. My LSAT was a 157 for G-d sakes ( my GPA was very high, but that's not nearly as important) It makes no sense.

Just curious. I haven't heard back yet.

Can someone explain what restitution, reliance and expectancy interests are?

Important concepts you can wait a few months before learning.

Refer to the above post.

plex, I basically agree with your assessment, except I don't think if you get reliance you automatically get restitution. Sometimes restitution can be a greater value than reliance. If the breaching party can show that the non-breaching party would have suffered a loss if the k had been performed, they can get out of paying reliance damages, but this won't work for restitution.

But OP why are you learning this now? Your sig says you are class of 2011--were you a summer start?

Some classes here learned damages first in k's, before even offer, acceptance, consideration, but I think that's a really confusing way to learn.   

Yes, I am a summer start.

Eh, learn them fast, since they are a basic part of Contracts I. If you get expectation, you also get reliance/restitution. If you get reliance, you also get restitution. If you get restitution, that is all you get. As to what each of the interests are, expectation is the profits one was expecting to receive from a transaction. Reliance is all the money spent in preparation to perform (AFTER the contract was made). Restitution is just getting back whatever value you passed on to the other party.

Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I just don't get it. I don't understand the book's defintion. Either I am thinking too hard or too little...
