Current Law Students / Black's Legal Dictionary
« on: July 12, 2006, 11:10:48 AM »
Is this valuable to have for 1L I did some research and found Black's to pretty much be the authority on legal dictionaries, but should I shell out the 65 bucks for it now???? Anyone using it now?

Current Law Students / Suicide and Transferred Intent
« on: July 10, 2006, 02:08:03 PM »
I have a criminal law question that I was hoping someone could help me out with.  Given what happened in New York today.  If someone were to attempt to kill themselves, yet not succeed and in the process kill someone else.  Would the intent to kill then transfer from the suicide attempter on to the third party who was killed.  If it was all in the same overt action.  Say a guys tries to kill himself by torching his house and a bystander is killed by an explosion.  Would the guy then be accountable for First Degree Murder charges. Would the intentional mens rea apply or would you only be able to hold for a lesser mens rea of knowingly or recklessness.  Also I was talking to a friend about dimenished capacity defense and I was wondering if you could pass the standard, as you were fully aware of the consequences of your actions were that death could occur.  Thanks.

I went down the shore, and I got a little sunburn, and it now hurts!

Current Law Students / External Hard Drives
« on: May 01, 2006, 04:29:51 AM »
I just posted this on a schools board, but I think it's important.  For anyone who is starting law school, or does not have one.  Buy an external hard drive if you store outlines and notes on a laptop.  I just remember this temple law student who came into the shop i work at as a tech during undergrad extremly upset because finals were in 2 weeks and she lost all of her data.  If you lose your laptop, have it stolen or it just craps out on you, you're screwed.  So I am just suggesting people who rely on their comps to buy USB hard drives, they don't have to be real big.  10gbs will do and learn how to back up their files on about a weekly basis.. Hopefully you'll never need it, but it could be the difference between a good and a poor semester.

Current Law Students / Law school and relationships
« on: April 28, 2006, 03:40:00 PM »
I'm a 0L starting law school in the fall, im hearing mixed stories about my ability to maintain my relationship with my girlfriend i was hoping for some experience if anyone is willing to chime in.  I"m going to be living on campus about 45 minutes from where she lives.  we've been together a year and half (2 by the time LS starts) and we have a strong relationship.  has anyone been able to work through this or have a similar story.  also i am 22 years old, and she is going into her senior year of undergrad and student teaching next year so we'll both be busy i would say. thanks

Current Law Students / Law School Confidential Property Hypo
« on: April 19, 2006, 07:02:05 PM »
okay guys i'm reading Law School Confidential and they list a hpyo on page 122 when explaining propery class. The question is interesting and I am hoping some experienced student knows the answer. Here it goes.

Who has the "more significant" right to a piece of property that was lost by person A, found by person B, stolen by person C, sold to dealer D, bought by person E, when person A sees person E wearing her "lost" ring and demands its return.

Who would have the right and under what circumstances would that right change, maybe knowledge of receipt of stolen property etc.  It's not important I would just like to know for my own sake.
