Nashville School of Law / Taking out the garbage.
« on: September 21, 2004, 02:09:57 PM »
Also, I forwarded a copy of 1L's hate mail to VU Law admissions office and School of Law Vice Chancellor/Provost/Professor Zeppos. I'm also communicating with some former colleagues.

Nashville School of Law / Outlining Torts
« on: September 21, 2004, 01:57:31 PM »
Ok, I have started outlining Torts thanks to LAWGIRL! What a gal.
Anyway, wondering if any NSLers want to email each other our outlines. Compare and contrast is always good. I'm just getting started but if anyone would like to see what a stay-at-home mom (like I EVER stay at home) can do, I'll be glad to share!
Speaking of Vandy1L, I asked Andrew (the moderator) to move Vandy's nastiness and I also asked that he be banned from our board. Andrew said he hesitates to ban anyone because they usually just come back with a vengeance...he wants me to keep him informed, and I am. It is very easy to forward his hate mail to Andrew, just click on "report to moderator" at the bottom of the post.
Meanwhile, let's all swear an oath not to respond to him!
Oh, and I also forwarded all his posts to my Uncle in the Office of General Counsel.

Nashville School of Law / Legal Writing Memorandum Assignment
« on: September 19, 2004, 07:28:03 PM »
Do we have a Bluebook or know where to find one?  ;)
Maybe our Vandy 1L can help me out. I know I used one when I was a janitor....
Seriously though, have you read about the bonus for using the Bluebook?
Interestingly, I Googled "legal memorandum example" and got quite a few results.
None of them were INCORRECT like the example she covered in class. What was up with that?
We learn by being presented with the WRONG way to do something.
GRRRR my claws are out!

Nashville School of Law / Disappointment in performance on Crimes test
« on: September 17, 2004, 10:15:56 AM »
Well, how is everybody feeling about Crimes?
I thought the test was very fair (there were a couple questions I could argue) but according to my calculations I got a low C. I am usually an A-B student and it was disappointing to me to do "poorly" for so much effort.
I am now in a total panic about Torts and Contracts....
Anybody else?  ???

Nashville School of Law / Briefing cases on Westlaw
« on: September 16, 2004, 09:19:07 AM »
There is a "brief it" function you can choose. It is certainly not sufficient to form a brief to present in class but it does give you the important stuff and helps guide you through the case when you are reading it. It is a brief of the brief we need to have ready to present.
Just look for "brief it" and enter the citation. Email me if you have difficulty!

Nashville School of Law / ok I've figured it out
« on: September 15, 2004, 05:29:12 PM »
Now I can post a new topic to the forum. Yeah, I did it! I am getting a bit goofy!
I was curious how everyone has prepared for the Crimes midterm.
I have reviewed cases, the text, and note.
Anything else anyone is doing?

General Board / Crimes mid-term
« on: September 15, 2004, 03:03:32 PM »
Just a survey of how people are preparing.
I've typed my notes and studied them
Reread and studied briefs
Reread highlighting in chapters
Looked through examples at end of chapters.
Anything I've forgotten?
Thanks!  ???
