Current Law Students / Re: UCC 2-207 HELP!!!!
« on: November 27, 2005, 06:45:32 AM »
The way courts have generally interpreted 2-207 and "the offeree's acceptance is expressly made conditional on assent to additional or different terms" is that only those exact words will act as a rejection of the offer. If you have anything less, no matter how close it may be, the courts will generally construe it as an additional term (Courts love to uphold the creation of a contract). You may still have a definite and seasonal expression of acceptance.

So depending on what the language is you may either go to subsection 2 or 3 (if there is conduct that resembles a contract).

If the language deviates from "acceptance made conditional" run through a subsection 2 analysis.

If the language is exact and yet there is a delivery and acceptance of the materials then you go to subsection 3.
   The contract consists of those terms on which the writings of the parties agree.
       If you havenít agreed to it, its not in the contract; and therefore the terms would be thrown out.
   I don't know if you have discussed the last shot theory in your class, but it might be worthwhile to mention   

Since its a creation of a law school professor, chances are he/she made it as ambiguous as possible so you have to argue both the subection 2 and 3 routes.

Current Law Students / Re: Doin' the Weekend Crunch

I know exactly what you mean. My weekend has been filled with work.

     Friday - I had class from 9-2:30. I took an hour and a half to unwind. Then from 4-7 I completed my contracts
     Saturday - It was a day dedicated to Civil Procedure. From 11:00-7:30 I completed my outline and also read through
                some hornbooks to get a deeper grasp.
     Today - I'll be in my apartment all day organizing my memo and preparing for Property tomorrow.

At my school people come in wearing everything from a shirt and tie to shorts and flip flops. Most people just wore jeans and a nice shirt. The second day is became much more casual. The third day the Dean of Financial Aid spoke to us and said, wear jeans here; you can so you might as well.

Current Law Students / Re: Touro or Cuny where should i transfer to

If you go solely on rankings then CUNY is a better bet; however, thats not always the best idea. Isn't CUNY a strictly public interest law school? If it is and you're lookingto get into that field then I's say go there. Also, its much closer to Manhattan than Touro. Thats always a plus.

Job Search / Re: summer before law school
« on: July 31, 2005, 06:09:57 PM »
I heard from a law professor at Seton Hall that the best thing you can do before law school is to get a full time job. Get into the habit of working 8-12 hrs a day so you're not bombarded with the overwhelming amount of work that will in August.I took his advice. I'm working on the Corzine for Governor campaign in New Jersey. I go into work at 10am and usually don't leave the office til about 9. I do love my job though, so its not too bad.

Current Law Students / Re: Recording Lectures-Useful for Law School?
« on: July 22, 2005, 06:59:40 PM »
What I'm gonna do, which only applies if you take your laptop to class, is to record the lectures onto my computer while typing out my notes. Therefore, if I miss anything in my notes I can fill it in afterwards and make any modifications.

Another question I have regarding Int'l Law is whether or not it helps to study abroad for a summer or semester? I'm looking to focus on international trade law as well. Thanks for all the comments so far.

Hey I'll be a 1L in the fall. I'm looking to concentrate on International Law. Can anyone share some experiences they've had with I.L. classes and/or experiences in the field? Thanks
