General Board / Re: Got Mnemonics?

love FIRM, any more for Torts?


I am a 2L and we use them.  Most recently for the types of things that must be proved in order to obtain punitive damages:

FIRM

Fraudulent
Intentional
Reckless
Malicious



Also for determining whether the courts will certifify a Class Action in Civ Pro:

CANT

Commonality
Adequate Representation
Numerosity
Typicality

Hope these help.

Mr. Slick, I would refer you to an article in last Sunday's NY Times regarding this type of "creep".
Pretty fascinating to think that this may be the end of America as our generation knew it....

could you specify what you don't give one about?
You've obviously mistaken me for someone that gives a *&^%.

I learned that Hogan's C memo is considered "excellent" by someone with these qualifications: 
So, while it may be a C to our prof--- in the real world (where we will actually practice)
it is something that can be "relied upon by the senior partner without hesitation" and that makes me feel fantastic regardless of my arbitrary grade.
This from the firm's website:

well, at least we know Kathleen hasn't gone insane.  :D
Now if we just posit identities for the troll it will eventually lead us to its identity.
eventually we will catch it in the troll trap...
I think the rumor I've heard about the a** kisser in a class other than Monday night might be our troll.
As for troll reality shows.....
How about "trolls---good law students gone bad"
or "trolls---where lawyers get their reputations"
or "trolls---lets repeal free speech and see what happens"
or "trolls---mastering the art of whining about whining"
I don't think any of these shows have the potential for success, unless justice was served to the troll at the end. Something worse than being voted off the island....maybe the troll will be forced to eat all its words over a plate of worm linguini. Or, UNMASK ITSELF AT THE END OF THE SHOW and let all those it has maligned know who it is.
Nashville is a small town and Tennessee a reasonably small state. It is entirely possible we will be working with our classmates at some point.
All those dark, brooding hints about "upper level profs" and "this has gone deep" with their sense of terrible foreboding....what about discovering the troll's identity and holding it responsible for its nastiness...that would be a total shame to be known as the lawyer who slammed his/her classmates during school in favor of "the man" (prof). What a way to start a law career.
n2dlaw, I hope you plan on practicing in Hohenwald, cause once we determine who you are....well, let's just say it will go deeper than you can imagine......
deep dark sense of foreboding purposefully inserted here...... :-*
