Current Law Students / Study Aids
« on: August 22, 2006, 01:25:05 PM »
Hey kids,

Any recs for good study aids for Corporations, Debtor Creditor or EU Law (yeah, probably not that last one, but figured I'd throw it in)?


Current Law Students / 2 things
« on: January 04, 2006, 08:36:48 PM »
1.  What's the easiest way to get rid of last semester's books/supplements and get a little money back?  My undergrad bookstore used to rip us off a lot.  Is Amazon better? Ebay?

2.  Which supplements are most helpful for property and contracts?


Current Law Students / Torts: Allocative Efficiency
« on: December 14, 2005, 03:16:17 PM »
My prof spent a bunch of time explaining allocative efficiency and distributional fairness economic principles.  I get the concepts, but am having trouble figuring out where they would even go in an analysis of a hypothetical on the exam.  He discussed them in the context of comparing strict liability and negligence regimes, but since its now established that only certain specific instances are governed by SL (ie: products liability, ultrahazards, nuisance, etc) and the rest is negligence, I don't see where a discussion of the economics of each would apply.  He spent so much time on it in class though that I have a hard time believing he doesn't want it to show up somewhere.  Anybody know where I could stick these into an analysis?  Thanks

Current Law Students / Crim Multiple Choice
« on: December 12, 2005, 06:57:22 AM »
Which of the following is/are omitted in the MPC's homicide provisions:

1)Misdemeanor manslaughter
2)Reckless homicide
3)Strict liability homicide
4)1 and 2 above
5)1 and 3 above

Why I am confused about this: does felony murder count as SL homicide?  If so, has the MPC actually omitted the felony murder rule?  I was under the impression it only strictly limited the felony murder rule by having the felony create only a presumption of murderous recklessness as opposed to a certainty.  Any clarification would be much appreciated!

Current Law Students / Suggestions for practicing Crim?
« on: December 05, 2005, 11:00:13 AM »
Hi All,

Anyone have any suggestions for a good book to practice Criminal Law hypotheticals/examples?  How's the E&E?  Seigel's?  I really just need the practice problems and solutions b/c my prof only gave us one test to practice with.  Thanks!

Brooklyn Law School / Trager for Con Law?
« on: November 28, 2005, 10:33:06 AM »
Has anybody had Trager for Con Law?  If so, could you shed some light on how I can most effectively study for his final?  More specifically, just how in line with his opinions does he expect responses to be?  He looks for very specific things in class that nobody seems able to give him, so I'm curious if the exam will be the same.  Thanks for the insight!

Current Law Students / Preparing for ConLaw Exam?
« on: November 28, 2005, 10:08:18 AM »
Does anyone have effective tips for studying for a Con Law final?  I'm having trouble figuring out the best way to organize my outline so it will be useful on an exam.  I've tried discussing the material with classmates, but it seems like even the studious ones are as lost as I am in there because our Prof isn't very good and neither is the text book.  I have Chemerinsky's hornbook and it has been very helpful, but I've found doing hypos in the E&Es to be the most effective studying method for my other classes.  I hear its not so good for understanding Con law though, so any other suggestions?  Also, my prof only has one old exam posted for us to look at (of course), so is the best thing to just use old Con Law exams from other professors at my school?  Any help would be much appreciated, thanks!

Current Law Students / Bluebook Errors?
« on: October 28, 2005, 10:51:01 AM »
Apparently there are several mistakes in the infamous bluebook?  Does anybody know any of them off hand?  Thanks!
