What I learned from Memo #2 ... is that you can still get a good grade and be ticked off. I did well on the second paper (thanks to the random grade generator), but I would still like to know what I did well on so I can hopefully do the same thing on Memo #3.

Ask for a meeting.  I think that's the only way.

Let's see.  Prof is going half-way around the world, will grade exams during the 30 hours in the air, and we will probably have to wait until the 24th for our mid-term exam grades.  Yes,no?

I hope she doesn't graduate to teach that one!

That would force me to make some difficult decisions.

That is the worst part of it.

I'm hoping TBA will offer a seminar or something.

And remember, we will have another LWR in the third year I think.

I am so burned out on that class I can't stand it. I almost feel like I need to audit a LWR class somewhere else to get a better handle on the nonsense she has taught us.

I too went from a B to a C, with no explanation.  I am considering that the final paper is not worth doing.

I did worse.  I'm going to read her mind and write the paper she would write.  I am passing this course no matter what.  I cannot repeat it.

When can a non viable fetus recover for wrongful death in TN?

Distinguish: wrongful pregnancy, wrongful birth, wrongful life.

A fetus cannot recover for wrongful death.  It's parents can.

Wrongful pregnancy is a pregnancy that results from negligently performed pregnancy abortion procedure or other and the child is healthy.

Wrongful birth is similar, but the child is not healthy.

Wrongful death is an action on the part of a child born unhealthy as a result of negligence.  This is not recognized in Tennessee.

They do have a few scholarship things aimed at doing just that, but not enough for many students to go into public interest.

Where the money goes so go the priorities.

One upmanship, I guess.  It takes all kinds to make a law school.

What makes the difference between conversion and trespass to chattels?

degree.  the difference is a matter of degree.  the greater the interference the more likely it is conversion.

In defense of others, what does mistake do?

negates the defense, unlike other defenses.

I ask friends who are concerned about their grades if they are happy with their recent grade.  That's as far as I go.  And I ask out of concern for them.  Ooops.  LWR is the exception since it's seems to be a crapshoot.
