Studying and Exam Taking / substantive due process
« on: December 15, 2008, 03:38:15 PM »
I'm having trouble differentiating between substantive due process and equal protection issues.  I was under the impression that if a right is taken from some people, it's an equal protection issue.  If it's taken from all, it's a due process issue. 
What if there's a hypothetical that homosexuals must go through rigorous regulations before marrying, that heterosexuals do not have to go through?  First, you'd analyze the statute under Equal Protection arguments because there's a distinction made between heterosexuals and homosexuals (RB review).  But would you also analyze it under substantive due process to argue that it burdens a fundamental right, marriage?  I suppose I'm just confused about what kind of hypothetical could embody both equal protection and due process issues.

Studying and Exam Taking / Con Law question
« on: December 13, 2008, 05:03:09 PM »
I'm having a little trouble understanding the enabling clause of the 14th amendment.  I know the rules (congruence and proportionality, etc.).  The problem is, I'm having trouble finding examples of what would be valid legislation.  Does anyone have any study guide hypos or scenarios that would clarify what type of legislation would be authorized under sec. 5 of the 14th amendment? 
The only example I can find from cases is Hibbs, and I was looking for more than that.

Studying and Exam Taking / Quick property question

Can you sue a sublessee for private nuisance or must you sue the property owner?  I can't find the answer to this question online.

Studying and Exam Taking / Contracts charts
« on: November 10, 2007, 11:20:38 PM »
I'm looking for a chart for contracts.  Something linear, "First, is there an offer?  If so, is there acceptance? Etc"  Something to help me draw everything together chronologically in my outline.
Any suggestions?

General Board / Definitions you wished you knew going into 1L
« on: July 30, 2007, 01:19:43 PM »
I was wondering what words (general English words that take on a new definition, or words you'd never heard of) you wish you had known the definition of before setting foot in a 1L class.  These aren't necessarily complicated legal concepts, but sometimes just everyday words that the legal community uses in their own special little way.
Please include the definition.

Book Sales and Trades / LEEWS: will buy your used copy

Is anyone selling a set of LEEWs for a reasonable price?  Please message me if you're looking to unload a copy.

I know there was an Admitted Students Weekend that just happened at NYU.  How did everyone find it?

Where should I go next fall? / NYU 1L answering questions
« on: December 21, 2007, 05:06:01 AM »
It seems like that time of year.  Does anyone have any inquiries about NYU/law school in general?  I'll try to help if I can.

Financial Aid / How to find what % of students receive financial aid?
« on: July 18, 2007, 02:01:46 PM »
Does anyone know a website or database that publishes stats about what percentage of students at individual schools receive institutional financial aid?  Ex:  I'm interested in cold, hard numbers on how many people were offered institutional aid at NYU Law.
