Also, check the actual text for errors as well as the footnotes (the bluebook covers capitalization (they love to incorrectly capitalize the C in court), ellipses, etc).
I think I'm done now  :D

So what is the rule on capitalizing court?  Do it only for SC?  Thanks!

Thanks for the response.  But assume I don't have a location preference...that is, I don't prefer Texas over Bay Area, or vice versa.  Still UT?

Sorry, I should've given more information.

I have a VERY compelling reason for wanting to go to UT.  I'd rather not spell it out, but I really can't imagine it being possible to have a better reason.  Also, I think I probably would've been semi-competitive as a 1L (4.0/159).  I know the LSAT is a bit low, but I was in-state applicant and I know some people who got waitlisted with similar numbers (I personally didn't apply as 1L).

That's why I think my grades being slightly lower would be good enough to get me in.  There are also a couple people I've heard of who went Hastings to UT being top 1/3.

So assuming I get in, any thoughts on which is preferred?

What do you guys think?  Say I would be around top 20% if I stay where I am now.  I'm not keen on Biglaw, but not completely ruling it out.  All I'm looking for is decent pay with decent hours.  Assume I have no location preferences.

Cool, thanks.

What about federal internship v. working at a small firm making about 10-15 an hour?  I guess with the small firm you're not quite sure how much substantive legal experience you'll get?

So I hear wildly differing opinions about the "prestige" of a federal government internship (for 1Ls).  Seems like some people say anyone can get one, other says it's the best thing you can do after federal judicial or big/medium law firm.  Certainly most people agree that it's a great practical experience, but I'm not clear on how firms view it for 2L OCI purposes.

I guess my main problem with #2 is C's interest.  I think C has a shifting exectory interest.  So we must apply RAP.  B's children's lives wouldn't save the interest, because they're an open class.  So does it fail RAP (disregard destructibility)?  I think the grandmother's death would save the interest.  Once she dies, the children cannot visit her anymore, so C's interest would vest.  Does this make sense?


I've noticed that a lot of professors/books/supplements use slightly different terms and analysis, so I just wanted to bounce around some idea here.

Hello,

Can one of you fine LSD kids help me with the following transfers:

1. G to S for life, then to M's children and their heirs; M is alive with no children


2. G to A for life, then to B's children for life, but if B's children stop visiting their grandmother, to C and his heirs; B has one child


State the interests, and subject appropriate ones to Rule Against Perpetuities.  Why or why not does each one pass or fail RAP?

Thanks!
