My reading of the above notice is that the Property class is cancelled for that date only.

Anybody coming tomorrow night?  C'mon, you know you want to! I'll certainly be there.

You rock.  Thanks for the 'heads up.'  As far as Barker and Hirsch are concerned, I also appreciate the second opinion.  I can be a bit of a contrarian as far as the 'dreaded' profs are concerned, so who knows what'll happen (the less anxiety going in, the better).

I think that it is SO important (at least I keep telling myself this) that I go in knowing that it will be one hell of a challenge, and that I will give it my absolute best.  The eve of 1L is a little nerve racking, so I feel a little tenuous - but... so many others have felt the same way.  There's a little solace in that!

Everybody Else:

Finding myself wildly unprepared for any sort of BBQ at my house, I propose something entirely different.

I'd like to meet up with any of you who are interested (including non 1L's ;) ) at the Sharp Edge Beer Emporium this Wednesday night at 8, in Friendship.  It is a nice place, good food, and a great selection of Belgian beer (the best on earth, if you don't know beer).

The information for the Sharp Edge is as follows:
302 South St. Clair  Street
Pittsburgh, PA 15206

You really don't want to get directions from me.  I suggest plugging in the above address into mapquest - it'll get you there no problem. It is no more than 1/4 mile from the intersection of Friendship & South Negley.

Ah... right.  I am in Section B (as well as section 01  ;) ). 

So this picnic on the 21st... when does it begin/end? 

Also, I'd love to put faces to all of you posters.  I am thinking about doing something cheesy like holding up a sign.

I am still looking for a roommate to share my 2 bedroom place in Friendship.  Check out my topic, it is one of the few topics in our little Duquesne section of the site. 

Pittsburgh / I need Roommate for my Apartment
« on: August 03, 2004, 07:12:11 PM »
Hello all...

I need someone to take the second bedroom in my first floor, two bedroom  apartment.  The person I was going to be living with backed out at the last minute due to unforseen circumstances.  I will be starting law school at Duquesne in August.

The apartment is located in Friendship, about 15 mins from Downtown by bus.  The second bedroom is 11' X 10.5'.  There is a closet. 

The apartment is freshly renovated, has central air, parking, and new carpet and flooring, new kitchen, new bath, etc.  The layout is attractive and open.  The living room is comfortably large and I am open to rearranging the furniture or adding anything of yours.  There is a dining area in the kitchen, and a nook for a desk or whatever. I have high-speed internet, and a wireless access point.  I have a nice TV, stereo, digital cable, etc.  I also have indoor access to the basement if you need to store anything.

Your share of the rent will be $315 (the total is $675, I have a bigger bedroom so I will pay more).  Utilities are separate, although the gas heat system is new and very efficient.

If you are interested or have any additional questions, do not hesitate to call me, even if it is 4 AM.  My number is 412-389-0358 (cell).

Not that I needed to announce this to the world or anything... the site won't let me delete the topic, so editing it was the next best thing.

Also, some of the classes have the books and advance assignments listed on the Bulletin Board, accessible via a link found on the main law school page.

I just received my bill and schedule (funny how they come on the same page).  I am in section 1.

Thanks for the info... although it's not stress so much as curiousity!  This first little memo is fun.  Fortunately I received the required book in the mail today, and it answers my formatting question.

"A number of reports indicate that the justices, while agreed that segregation was wrong, were divided over whether the Court had the power to overrule Plessy. They therefore set the cases down for reargument in 1953, specifically asking both sides to address particular issues. Then Chief Justice Vinson, who reportedly opposed reversing Plessy, unexpectedly died a few weeks before the reargument, and the new chief justice, Earl Warren, skillfully steered the Court to its unanimous and historic ruling on May 17, 1954." (

As it was a unanimous ruling, there aren't any dissenting opinions to discuss.  My educated guess is that a unanimous ruling precludes the possibility that there are concurring opinions.

For the sake of the assignment, however, we're only to use what Duq provided.

What I would REALLY like to know is the proper format for the memorandum that we're to have mailed by the end of the month.  I have my answer, but I need to fit it into a memo format that is appropriate for a law clerk to send to a justice.
