Bad music. Universal healthcare.

Current Law Students / Re: Why Library

I know very few people who can stand studying in the library. The only advantage I can think of is you have access to hornbooks and treatises if you need to consult them. Other than that, you should study where you're most comfortable, I would think. I just finished my first semester, 1L, and I only studied in the library between classes. If my grades suck, I doubt it has anything to do with my aversion to the library.

I was worried about a similar thing, but the prof said that most people won't get to all of the questions and he put so many on there so that you can choose which ones you know the best. Well, I only did three out of seven. Actually I kind of answered four, but it was included in my analysis for the first question - don't know if I'll get credit for it :-\. I included an analysis of service in the question about jurisdiction (there was personal service so it had to do with TJ), but the second question was about sufficiency of service.
Anyway, I should probably still be worried since I only answered a few questions, but I just can't bring myself to make myself any crazier than I was just before the exam. I suggest that now it's over you try to chill out. Get drunk, laid, whatever will help you unwind.  ;) I guarantee you're not the only one who didn't finish the exam. If your analysis was really good for the other questions, you may be competing for the top grades.

Good luck!

I 100% disagree with people who recommend reading about law school. It's fine as a safety blanket sort of thing to make you feel better once you're already set on going, but if you're still trying to decide whether law school is for you, you should sit in on first-year classes as much as possible at your local law school. It doesn't matter if it's a T1 or T4. They all teach the same crap. My school has the casebooks in the library, so you could ostensibly check one out and follow along with the reading for a day or so to get the feel for the experience.

You could also contact any schools that have accepted you, or that you are applying to, and request to talk to alumni who share your background in education. They will probably just BS you and tell you that their school is awesome, but it couldn't hurt too much to ask.

There are actually several educators in my Legal Writing section and I've never heard any of them say that they would go back to teaching. A friend from my class has mentioned before that he was burned out from teaching elementary kids and that law school is less stressful. I don't know if he still feels that way during exams,  though!

Current Law Students / Ending early?
« on: December 04, 2005, 08:58:19 PM »
Has anybody finished a law school final exam early and done well? How about a first-year exam? I'm just wondering because several people left early in the last two exams, but I was working up until the last minute. I'm wondering if this is a sign that I'm not budgeting my time well, or if the people who left just missed something.

No, he can't recover. The comments aren't outrageous enough and I don't think the thin-skulled plaintiff rule applies to intentional infliction of emotional distress.

I'd just like to point out that promissory estoppel can also be used to get around the statute of frauds; it's not just a substitute for consideration. I can't think of any examples of when you'd use promissory estoppel if you have an enforceable contract.

I don't see how you people can pretend to have an intellectual debate over the "hateful" Jews and what not. That's prejudice and prejudice is ignorant, no matter how you dress it up. Remember The Bell Curve? Yeah, that guy was an idiot, too.
