Houston / What's the story on Professor Victor Flatt?
« on: January 03, 2007, 11:51:04 AM »
Hello U of H -

Prof. Flatt is visiting us up here at Seattle University, and I'll be taking two classes from him, Admin and Environmental Fundamentals.  Anyone have any insight to share on his style, personality, etc?

Come on folks!  200 people have read this and no one has anything to offer?  Is he that scary??

General Board / Re: Delaware v. MBCA

Thanks guys.

yes I guess it is a little diffcult to find the differences because there are subtle to say the least....but good point about the exculpatory provision.

There are so many rules to learn for this class, I'm really overwhelmed to the point inaction.  There's no way to learn them all!  yikes.

General Board / Delaware v. MBCA
« on: November 26, 2006, 03:48:43 PM »
Does anyone have a good straightforward chart (or something) that highlights the main differences between Delaware corp law and the MBCA?

My Business Entitites professor has all but promised we will be tested on both, and I'm having a hard time sussing out/keeping clear what the differences are.

Any help would be much appreciated -

Yep, that all makes sense, he did discuss that fact that he is more concerned with teaching us how to be lawyers, and torts is just a vehicle....

And I think I need to brush up on my CivPro standards of review.

Thank you very much for the insight!

If anyone else is willing to share the Dworkin "lecture-map", which I guess is floating around amongst UI students, (mentioned by the above poster) I would be much obliged.  Everything helps when it comes to law school...

thanks for the feedback, after four weeks of class everything you've written rings true.  He's giving an extra lecture tonight to talk about the exam.  I like the class and am learning a lot, but I just don't see yet how it is going to translate into an outline or an exam.  Maybe I'll have a better idea after tonight's class. 

Unfortunately we don't have access to any of his exams to practice on; that's the only part about visiting professors that is a drag - no previous students/outlines/exams/support etc.  So this correspondence is really helpful for me!

I'm not familiar with the Leon Green book; is it a hornbook?

So when you say to not use outlines because he test strictly on negligence, I'm not sure I follow you.  Are you saying the commercial outlines don't explain the black letter law the way he wants you to know it?

Thanks !

Indiana - Bloomington / Dworkin torts outline?
« on: June 29, 2006, 04:11:24 PM »
Hi Indiana!

I'm taking torts from Dworkin this summer in Seattle, and I'd really appreciate any notes/outlines anyone is willing to share.  We have an outline bank here at SU, but of course there are no outlines for visiting professors.
He's brilliant and awesome, and I'm learning a lot, but I'm not sure it's torts that I'm learning!

Anyway - any help would be appreciated.

Wow.  That is certainly comprehensive!  Maybe there is no straightforward way of applying the RAP - especially with the 'afterborn' people thrown in.

I'm afraid if I get a RAP issue on the exam, I'll end up spending 45 minutes on an hour question!

Thank you for spelling it out, maybe I can outline it more easily now.

Does anyone have a straightforward method of applying the RAP?  A roadmap, a system, something? It's about as intuitive as calculus as far as I can tell.

How cool to have him for a professor.  Talk about getting it from the horse's mouth!

This checklist is helpful.

Now for the next question:  Rule Against Perpetuities!  Is there a straightforward way of applying that?  It is about as intuitive as calculus from what I can tell.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Tater Torts

I'm not taking Torts this semester, so I have nothing to add, but I did find your subject line amusing.
