Current Law Students / Study Aids
« on: August 22, 2006, 12:25:05 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, 07:36:48 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?

having girl problems i feel bad for you son ...

i have 99 problems but a female dog ain't one

hit me
The year is 2005, in my brain is raw (d**mn law school exams)
In the front of the class is the motherf**ckin law prof
Got two choices y'all, do all your readin' or (hmm)
bounce on the Devil, and use legalines
And I ain't tryin to see no highway chase with Jake
Plus I got a few dollars, I can ad-lib the case
So I, use legalines and the prof calls on me
"Son tell me about this case"
Cause I'm young and I'm black and my hat's real low
Or do I look like a mindreader sir?  I don't know
Am I on the spot or should I guess some mo'?
"Well you obviously haven't done the reading and you aren't going to pass;
now next week you will brief all the cases -
are you using legalines?  I know a lot of you are"
I ain't using *&^%, all my papers legit
"Well do you mind if I look around your backpack a little bit?"
Well my backpack is loaded, so is my lap top
And I know my rights, so you gon' need a warrant for that
"Aren't you sharp as a tack!  You some type of
 lawyer or somethin (hopefully), somebody important or somethin?"
Child I ain't passed the bar, but I know a little bit
Enough that you won't illegally search my *&^%
"Well we'll see how smart you are when the dean comes"
I got 99 problems, but a female dog ain't one - hit me!

. . .you are a tool

Yay! A combination of MLM and Spam! All I need is to find out that along with the job, I can earn a percentage if I help get $50M out of the country, and it'd be an Internet crap trifecta.

hahahahahaha  :D

Current Law Students / Re: Torts exam
« on: December 16, 2005, 02:02:48 PM »
At least you did intentional torts.  My entire 5 credit torts class was negligence.

We may as well have NOT done them, since my prof rushed it so much.  My torts final is tomorrow, and my prof is SO horrible, that my entire section has pretty much written off studying for it as a lost cause.  This is the first time my prof has taught torts, and they probably won't let this prof teach it again.  I think my entire section used the words "horrid," "unprepared," "incompetant," and "confusing" in their course evaluations. 

Uh, yeah I know what you mean.  My con law prof is the same.  Interestingly enough, he's also a federal judge. . .you'd think he'd have it together, but not so much.  that final is on the 22nd and i'm still trying to figure out what i'm going to do about it.

Regardless of what you do, you're going to have to deal with women and women are crazy.  All of them are.  Of course, men are generally stupid (see giraffe's comments about her dating experience above) so its important to find the right balance.  But all the "dump her" advice. . .that's not gonna solve your problem.  In fact, the next one who comes along could be even worse, so if she's not that bad and she's just annoying you right now b/c its finals, wait til they're over and try to compromise.  You obviously don't want to break up with her if you haven't done it yet.

Yeah, I just finished mine this afternoon.  I feel the same way.  Sigh. . .and to think I had such high hopes for myself just 3 short weeks ago.

Don't dump her now. . . that's just asking for even MORE distraction!  She'll cry, you'll feel bad, it'll mess up your focus, you'll get late night phone calls and that bad feeling in your stomach, etc.  Just explain to her that law school needs to be your first priority for these few weeks during exams and that you're happy to discuss how she feels at length when you're finished w/ your tests.  Besides. . .if you do well on your tests and get a good job, you can afford to buy her a great big RING!   :P  Juuuuuust kidding

Current Law Students / Torts: Allocative Efficiency
« on: December 14, 2005, 02:16:17 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, 05:57:22 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!
