General Board / Case Citing
« on: November 16, 2005, 02:45:10 PM »
I found this very old case and was wondering where can I find it on the internet where it is shepardized.  I don't have Lexis Nexis.

Here is the case: Pico v. Colimas (1867) 32 C 578, 580.

3 different subjects.  3 classes a week.  One class for one subject.  We breeze through the cases. We don't really spend time talking about it. One student briefs, finishes and a few questions and it's on to the next.

I'm not full of *&^%.  I go to evening classes.  I go to law school part-time and they give us 70-100 pages to read for each class (my eyes are about to fall out) and there are about 20-30 cases in those pages.  I book brief.  I write my facts, issues and holding on the side of the book. I have 3 classes a week. Each class runs 3.5 hours long.  Imagine sitting through all those hours. So of course we have to read so many cases.

You guys only have to read under 10 cases for each class.  That's awesome!

How many cases do you have to read for each class? 

I have to read about 20-25 cases for each class.

Socratic Method / Psycho Professor

You know what my professor does when you enter the class late?  He freaks you out.  Here is what he does, when you stroll in late w/ your books and bag in your hand.  He’ll say, “Nice that you could make it class.  You can do the next case.”  By the time you get to your seat, flip frantically to the page of the book that the case is in and try to compose yourself and trying to remember what the heck the case is about, the teacher will say, “We are waiting.”  You stand up to brief your case trying to summary the case in your mind before talking out loud.   Horrible isn’t it?  It’s to teach us a lesson, not to be late for class.  I haven’t been put through that yet and don’t want to.

Also, when you go to the restroom and come back, he’ll say, “since you’re already up, you can do the next case.”  It’s like, “what the heck? I just got back.”

General Board / Re: Contracts - Statute of Frauds?
« on: November 09, 2005, 12:17:17 PM »
Statute of Frauds
Marriage
Year (one)
Land
Executor
Guarantor

All these items have to be in writing.  That's for common law.

For UCC, it's any goods over $500 must be in writing and signed by (I forgot who).


I hate contracts.  I have no idea about it.

General Board / Re: Bombed the 1st Exam

I know.  My mentor told me that I should just keep going.  She said that law school is like a marathon.  She said you just have to keep pacing yourself.  If not, you'll burn out before you even reach the end.  *sigh*  But I'm so tired right now.

Yeah, I just couldn't get that darn exam out of my mind.  I was even almost on the verge of tears.  I know...I know.... how weak I am to cry over an exam...although that was my feeling.

I just hope that I passed. I don't ask for much.
The sad thing is that I really, really studied hard for this and it discourages me that all my efforts went down the drain because I got so nervous I blanked out on the test.

General Board / Bombed the 1st Exam

Just finished my first exam ever and did so horribly.  I feel discouraged.  Why did I even apply to law school?
