It's a little late, but I'm grateful that it isn't never.  It's not often someone my age gets another chance at a career like this.

Retire at 55?  My goal is to be a full-time lawyer before 55.  I'll be 53 when I graduate, God willing.


Enough to buy nice suits.
I can live on very little. I don't come from a rich family (lower middle class to be honest). My goal is to make enough to retire ealry (like before 55). I want to travel the world with my wife. That is my goal.

ouch!

Can I clerk for you?  I'm sure by the time I finish school you'll be at least an appeal court judge.

Ha ha! no. :)

I don't plan to be a judge... wait... how much do they make?

omg congrats!
Thanks! I said the same thing... OMG!

I wasn't worried about K. I had the high score on the midterm (I only missed 8 points), so I figured I would at least get a B... it is that I have the three scores together that shocks me. I think I am going to go drink a few beers.  ;D

Congrats.   You can crow a little.


This just proves that dog people are better than cat people.

ps. This will be the last time I speak of this. I hate the people who walk around with big heads. I don't want to be one of them. I think one should accept victory as humbly as they might accept defeat.
Ok..... maybe just this one last time... I pulled the hat trick. I have all three grades, and I have all high scores (2 high scores where from my section, one was from all students combined)...  I am in shock.  :D

It depnds on the school, the person, their work habits, the teachers, the grading schemes, and so on.

I did pretty well on the second memo. But I don't know if it's because I presented, cited, and synthesized well or if Hogan's random grade generator ruled in my favor this time around.

Welcome, UCC.  I like that moniker.

Nashville School of Law / Re: What is your favorite class?

no cafeteria, just a little cafe that sells sandwiches, sushi, salads, and soup, bagels, etc.  bad food really

Ah the luxury of a 'real' law school.  We have a soda machine and a snack machine, but we love it.

Is it me or are things different in this class?  And don't ask me what I mean because I don't know.

Nashville School of Law / Torts Hypo 1
« on: January 07, 2005, 01:55:15 PM »
A sees B and C near the edge of a cliff.  B is laying on the ground and is obviously seriously hurt.  C is standing nearby.

A picks up B intending to take B to the hospital.  As A turns around with B in his arms, B's legs strike C and send C over the cliff and C dies.  In the process of picking up B, A causes B's broken rib to puncture his lung and B dies.

What torts has A commited?  (It's a trick question)
