It all depends on the school, the prof and so on.

You'll end up rereading it anyway.

Keep in mind what works well will vary by person. 


Relax.

You seriously don't think reading through one of the courses before class starts would get a good jump on things?

Are the tests based more on the book or the in-class notes?

After a few months of law school, I am convinced PLS missed the mark, at least for my school.

OK.  I listened to the lecture while driving and I have a better answer.

When you violate a statute
and the act is the cause of the harm
and the harm is the type of harm the statute is intended to prevent
and P is in the class of people intended to protect


When is someone "negligent per se"?


I'm not 100% sure, but I believe it is when you break a law in the performance of a tort.

I told you it was a trick question.  Rule of sevens goes to 21, but age of majority is 18

so strictly speaking....


Rule of 7s doesn't apply to adults, only to minors....seeks to determine maturity.
Consent is a defense, but it can be destroyed through scope, capacity etc.
Sales route cannot be converted. Dubya is a lost cause.
A duty is owed to a person that a reasonable person would foresee unreasonable harm.


Trick question:
Under the rule of sevens, does a 20 year old have the capacity to consent?

That looks similar to the curves I've seen at our school.  Torts prof says he doesn't curve the grade.

I don't know exactly what it is, but there's something wrong when the followers of the lover savior of the universis are charged with hate crimes.

Christian Activists Charged With Hate Crimes For Gay Protest
Charges Carry Penalties Of Up To 47 Years

POSTED: 2:54 pm EST January 12, 2005

PHILADELPHIA -- Four Christian activists are accused of hate crimes for their demonstration urging gays and lesbians to repent at last October's "Outfest" in Philadelphia.

Michael Marcavage and his fellow demonstrators face arraignment today for alleged ethnic intimidation, criminal conspiracy and inciting to riot.

Film shot for the upcoming documentary "The Philadelphia Five" shows Marcavage and other members of Repent America trying to make themselves heard over gay activists who whistled and surrounded them with pink signs. When Marcavage complained to police, he and his fellow Christians were arrested and jailed.

Their attorney said the charges carry penalties of up to 47 years in prison.
