General Board / Re: good criminal law supplement

If you use the Kadish crim book, I'd have to agree with the Understanding Crim book.  It really clears up issues that the casebook bring out.  It spells out the laws clearly and fairly concisely.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Studying on a Saturday *sigh*

I was feeling that big time last night, when I met up with some folks for a beer at 10:30 after being in the library all afternoon and evening.  It sucks, but it's only a month and a half until Christmas break.

General Board / Re: Best Professor Lines This Year

One professor particularly hates the use of pronouns.  When a student answered with the word it, he said "Keep using the word it, it is an excuse for thinking.  When I give you your exam just write it did this, it did that.  You'll "it" your way to a D.  Then when you graduate from law school you can write a book titled 'How I it'd my way to a D'.

(after a student explained why he agreed with the dissent in crim law)
Prof: You should be a insurance salesman, or maybe a realtor.  They don't do a damn thing.

A lawyer friend of mine told me that the people who walked out of law school exams saying they were easy were the people who didn't understand the questions.

Socratic Method / Today in Contracts
« on: August 29, 2005, 11:30:55 PM »
Our contracts professor asked a question to the class.  A student raised his hand to answer.  He answered "Well I guess".  And before he could say anything else the professor stopped him with the following response: "Lawyers do not answer questions with guesses.  If I wanted to hear someone guess I would go out during the winter and offer homeless people a warm classroom to sit in.  I could lecture them about the law and then ask them to guess what they thought the answers were."
