Yes--remember from civ pro--a plaintiff can have alternate inconsistent theories that entitle them to relief.

Thank you guys for the responses.

Job Search / acceptance etiquette
« on: March 15, 2009, 05:15:58 PM »
I have been offered a summer job that I intend to accept at a large firm. The offer letter gave no specific way of accepting the job. I'm thinking just call the person who sent the letter (the person in charge of hiring summer associates). From someone who has been through this, is there any certain etiquette that is customary?

Job Search / Call-back interviews

I realize that call-backs vary from firm to firm, but overall, what are they like? Just wondering about the type of questioning, etc one will be faced with. Any advice from someone who's been through it will be appreciated.

Current Law Students / a dumb question
« on: September 05, 2008, 02:35:38 PM »
Okay, this is probably a dumb question, but what exactly is a hornbook? I know it's supposed to be like a supplement to the casebook or something. It looks an awful lot like a casebook. I've looked at the other supplements like E & E's and stuff. What would be the best thing for someone who is understanding things okay but would like to get more clarification and get a good handle on a 1L class (like Civ Pro)? Thanks.

Current Law Students / patent law reqs

I am a soon to be 1L with a health science background. An attorney I know told me that I should look into patent law. I didn't think this would be option for me. What are the requirements for a career in patent law? I have a BS in health science and an MS in physical therapy. Thanks.

Current Law Students / thank you for scholarship letter
« on: July 11, 2008, 10:26:04 AM »
I just got a letter from my school informing me of the law firm that provided the money for my scholarship. It has been recommended that I write a letter to thank the firm. For any of you whom have done this, how detailed should one get in such a letter? Do they want to hear about me and why I want to be a lawyer or should it just be a simple thank you? BTY, a copy of this goes to my school too. Just looking for some advice. Thanks.

I have some silk tops but seems like they show sweat really badly. Ewww. It might just be me, but it seems like they provoke increased sweating.

For those you who who've read Getting to Maybe, do you feel it was worthwhile and/or beneficial?
