General Board / Re: do you have a silent timer you want to sell?
« on: August 13, 2005, 04:39:05 PM »
I bought a timer with a compass from radio shack for 5 dollars for the lsat.  It has a slight beep that you can barely hear.  Its un-audiable if you cover the small speaker hole with your thumb. 

It worked great for me and I dont believe proctors even care unless you have such a loud alarm that it will effect other test takers.

If you get lost trying to find the exit after the test, you can use the compass to plot your path.

General Board / Re: Is Batman the best superhero ever?

Green Lantern.

He should be able to make nuclear weapons and an army of tanks or whatever he sees fit to destroy his foe.

The onslaught of his army based on sheer numbers would defeat any superhero's abilities.  I dont know of a super hero who can deal with more than one enemy at a time.  Sheer numbers could defeat any superhero.

I believe that ethics should be a part of your everyday existence whether you're an attorney or not.

Ethics is a fundemental principle which at the foundation of the law.  I dont see how ethics would play a role in law that differs from ethical considerations in everyday life.

The law is there to uphold ethics and when applying the fact situation of your clients case, ethics are invariable present within the law.

Thank you for your insight and replies to this case.

Objectivity of course is essential to any type of legal analysis and applying the law to given fact situations.

Where do you go to school btw?

I think the restatements are important not necessarily for your class, but more along the lines of legal analysis.  Enabling you to apply the law i.e., restatements to fact situations.

General Board / Re: Anyone here NOT buying Case Books

Yes again i was contemplating either attemtping to find them on cd or just copying the assigned cases.  I was not considering not even looking at the case books.  Just not purchasing them.  Through some research however it seems there are no cds and I dont know if i want to waste time copying the cases in the library.

Though carrying the case book to class everyday is a pain.  I'll figure it out.

I've been told hornbooks are a waste of time.

General Board / MUST HAVE reading materials for 1Ls
« on: August 11, 2005, 04:08:27 PM »

I have composed a list of what I believe are "Must Haves" for advanced entering 1L students.

Black Letter Law Outlines
ABC's of the UCC
Restatement of contracts 2nd
Restatement of torts 2nd
Law Dictionary

I would put the LEEWS tapes in the list but i have not researched it to the extend where i can make a qualified decision on it.

Advanced students please let me know if I am missing anything.

Thanks everyone and good luck with your study and analysis of the law.
