Today was the first official day of classes. We only had legal writing. The assignment given to us seemed simple enough: read a case, state the rule, where the rule comes from and what it means. I get to the case and it is a MESS. This is not my first time reading a case (I did a summer program at another school to prep), so it's not just reader incompetence. It literally was a cut and paste mess. I would be in the middle of one paragraph and it would abruptly stop and start with something else entirely. I would continue reading and what do you know? There's the rest of the paragraph that got cut off. It didn't happen just once, but multiple times. What the f***? How am I supposed to complete an assignment when I can't even piece together the frickin case?
