Current Law Students / Re: UCC 2-207 HELP!!!!
« on: November 27, 2005, 07:45:32 AM »
The way courts have generally interpreted 2-207 and "the offeree's acceptance is expressly made conditional on assent to additional or different terms" is that only those exact words will act as a rejection of the offer. If you have anything less, no matter how close it may be, the courts will generally construe it as an additional term (Courts love to uphold the creation of a contract). You may still have a definite and seasonal expression of acceptance.

So depending on what the language is you may either go to subsection 2 or 3 (if there is conduct that resembles a contract).

If the language deviates from "acceptance made conditional" run through a subsection 2 analysis.

If the language is exact and yet there is a delivery and acceptance of the materials then you go to subsection 3.
   The contract consists of those terms on which the writings of the parties agree.
       If you havenít agreed to it, its not in the contract; and therefore the terms would be thrown out.
   I don't know if you have discussed the last shot theory in your class, but it might be worthwhile to mention   

Since its a creation of a law school professor, chances are he/she made it as ambiguous as possible so you have to argue both the subection 2 and 3 routes.

I know exactly what you mean. My weekend has been filled with work.

     Friday - I had class from 9-2:30. I took an hour and a half to unwind. Then from 4-7 I completed my contracts
     Saturday - It was a day dedicated to Civil Procedure. From 11:00-7:30 I completed my outline and also read through
                some hornbooks to get a deeper grasp.
     Today - I'll be in my apartment all day organizing my memo and preparing for Property tomorrow.

At my school people come in wearing everything from a shirt and tie to shorts and flip flops. Most people just wore jeans and a nice shirt. The second day is became much more casual. The third day the Dean of Financial Aid spoke to us and said, wear jeans here; you can so you might as well.

I really enjoyed the second part of our class. It was a great way to get introduced to briefing, outlining, and analyzing without the intimidation that you hear normally accompanies law classes.

Yeah, I know. I'm just glad I read the material. Its terribly boring though. Its like American Government 101 all over again. She's my Legal Methods professor. Atleast she seemed nice.

   That sounds like something I would do. My first day of undergrad I missed my first class completely because I read the campus map wrong. Rutgers is a big school.

   Regarding my professor. I had Lee. He was hilarious and seems like a great guy. Since he wanted our first experience speaking in law school to be stress free he had us go around the room introducing ourselves. On top of that he was very clear and concise.

I was just at the bookstore this afternoon. I bought all my books new and it cost me $640. The property book was $110. Its always painful to buy textbooks.

Current Law Students / Re: Touro or Cuny where should i transfer to
« on: August 09, 2005, 07:32:50 AM »
If you go solely on rankings then CUNY is a better bet; however, thats not always the best idea. Isn't CUNY a strictly public interest law school? If it is and you're lookingto get into that field then I's say go there. Also, its much closer to Manhattan than Touro. Thats always a plus.
