General Board / Any other schools not give out fall grades?
« on: December 12, 2005, 08:03:29 PM »
My law school does not give out any fall grades. All of our classes are a year long. Right now we are taking mid-term tests rather than finals and we take finals in the spring. The grades we get on our mid-terms are only wroth about 30% of our fianl grade. We do not have any grades to show potential employers. (I am sure we can tell them how we did on our mid-terms, but we do not have anything on our transcripts, so they would have to take our word for it). How is this going to effect my job search? I don't think that most schools do it this way.

General Board / HELP- Search and seizure question
« on: February 22, 2005, 04:21:01 PM »
This is for an undergrad class on the criminal justice system

Assume you are a judge in MN or WI and face this case: Police arrested two young men for smoking marijuana in a fishing shake on a local lake. They had set up their shack, which had a small heater and gelectirc light powered by a generator. The shak was enclosed to keep out weather and cold. This is a public lake and popular to many ice fisherman. There were many other shaks occupied at the same time. The police had received an anonymous call simply stating that someone was "smoking dope" on the lake. The police drove to the lake and went to each shack and opened the door, until they found the defendants in this case. the defendants were no longer smoking, but there was a joint lying by the feet. The officer saw it and seized it. The boys were arrested. The the trial, the young men claimed that the police violated their 4th amendment rights.

ID the issues and make a tentative decision.

HELP, Please!
