General Board / Re: US Code Question
« on: May 13, 2008, 11:36:36 AM »
OK - I found the Act in the US Code...

However, sources I am reading of a "s. 301" provision, then reference 19 U.S.C. 2411. If the provision is to be found in the USC s. 2411, why is it continued to be referenced as s. 301?

General Board / US Code Question
« on: May 13, 2008, 11:10:03 AM »
Hi, I am a Canadian student doing some research with American statutes.

I am having trouble with the US Code.  Specifically I am interested in the Trade Act ss. 301-310.  Right now I am using the Cornell Law School Code search, but it seems like the Act is fragmented throughout the Code.

What is a free online resource to view the Act in its entirety, outside of the USC?  I want to be able to search by sections.  What is the purpose of the USC?

Studying for the LSAT / Number of questions in each section?
« on: December 01, 2007, 01:53:19 PM »
I didn't finish a few sections - I need to know how many questions were in each section to figure out how it will affect my score.  Does anybody remember how many questions in each LR, LG, RC there were?

Studying for the LSAT / Re: WHICH WAS THE EXPERIMENTAL?
« on: December 01, 2007, 01:50:16 PM »
You keep saying that was the experimental section but how do you know?

I hope you aren't basing that on your idea that experimental sections are always section 1, 2, and 3.

Oh Canada! / Re: Little help, anybody? (Where should I go?)
« on: February 14, 2007, 10:40:54 AM »
I was accepted to Ottawa and Queen's so far, right now I am leaning towards Ottawa but I will have to take a drive up and see both schools.

To start I didn't apply to Western basically because I don't like London at all.  There is nothing interesting about the city - all it is is massive groups of suburbs.

I've hear Osgood is a good school, but from people that I've met went to York undergrad they didn't like the school. I heard the same comments about it being commuter school...  but that was just what I heard from other people - I have no personal experience.

Besides that I think Kingston is nice... never really been much but the campus is amazing.  Ottawa is a great town - tons of things to do, close to Quebec, but unfortunately real cold.

Everyone on this board is going to say this or that school is better at BigLaw (I hate seeing this word) or Public Sector yadayadayada...  I say f-that.  To me law schools is law school.  You might think you want to do a particular type of law right now and then you'll get to law school and things will change.  On top of that I just don't think it matters what University you go to as much a people lead on (I know I am going to get flamed over that).  So I'd say pick a school you think you'd be comfortable at for 3 years, in a city that you would enjoy.  I really think that is all there is to it.

Wow, nice, then do you think the fact that I am a Mechanical Engineer specifically looking to do IP law will have a better chance?

Hey, I am a Canadian from Windsor, ON who applied to Michigan.

1) What is your favorite thing about UofM?  (Academic, social, anything...)
2) What is the thing you enjoy least about UofM?
3) What are first year class sizes like, and how much personal contact do you have with professors?

One of the things I am most worried about, if I do get accepted, is taking out a 38,000 a year loan for tuition.  We are just not used to paying this kind of money in Canada.  I know they will provide you with student loans, how do they work and what sort of interest rates do they offer?  Is it interest free until you graduate?
