Current Law Students / Moot Court vs. Journal?
« on: July 02, 2009, 04:52:04 AM »
I got offers from a few journals, and I also got into Moot Court. I am not sure which option to choose. Any suggestions?

Some of you may think that this is a silly statement to make... But, the poltical doctrine question was the most abstract topic this semester for me in CON LAW I! Can anyone please give me examples as to the following steps to analyze the issue because otherwise, it all seems way to abstract to me... Thank you.

   Textual Strand: Does the text or structure of the Constitution commit the matter to the un-reviewable discretion of another political branch?
   Justiciable Discoverable & Manageable Standard in the Constitution: lack of justiciable standards for resolving the issue i.e. standards for which the court, as a court, can decide the question.
   Prudential Strand:
Does this produce enforcement issues? Too controversial? Government speaking with more than one voice on a sensitive issue? Are there other political safeguards sufficient to deal with the issue?

Current Law Students / Property Checklist
« on: April 07, 2009, 05:22:25 PM »
Hi everyone,

So, outlined throughout the course, and now I have a 130 page outline ( ridiculous length for the final). We covered roughly 700 pages of the Dukeminier casebook. Is there anyone who has a short outline that I can use as a skeletal for my final outline?

Thank you!

Anyone suggest a good supplement for property? I heard E&E is not that great for property.

Thank you.

Current Law Students / Teaching College Level After Law School
« on: January 16, 2009, 08:55:58 AM »
I am a 1L, and I always wanted to go into part-time college-level teaching after law school. ( I don't have a preference as to what subjects I want to teach). Is a law degree sufficient or should I also attain a master's in education? ( I know many community colleges and state schools including the one from which I got my BA hire those with Master's).

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

Current Law Students / Law school curve
« on: September 12, 2008, 06:57:05 AM »
I didn't pay attention to curves in college, because I figured as long as I got A's it doesn't matter to think about it. Now,obviously I do care now that I got one of my grades back from my first semester, a B- in contracts ( 5 units) and an intro to law class a B ( 2 units). I am still waiting for the grade for my other class that's 3 units. Anyhow, do I have to get mostly A's to be in the top 25% of my class? Basically, did I already ruin my chances to have a good academic standing?

I know that the top 25% of the graduating class at my school had a 3.434 and above.

Thank you!

Current Law Students / Criminal Liability Analysis
« on: July 30, 2008, 12:38:10 PM »
Does anyone recommend a site or have a really basic skeletal outline on how to best analyze criminal liablity. I understand all the concepts in the course , but I am unsure as to how to do the analysis in an orderly way.
Thank you!
