General Board / Re: Waiting for grades....
« on: June 10, 2007, 11:12:42 AM »
Our school requires grades to be in within 30 days of the last final exam.  Only one of my grades is still out (there's a way to tell through our website, even though they haven't released the grades yet.) and its legal methods, which was turned in April 12th.  I think they take so long so as to screw up those who want to transfer.  Friggin ridiculous.

My school requires this as well, though the profs regularly break that rule.

My classmates at UGA Law have been great.  Its the football crowd that takes over Athens in the fall that I'm not so sure about (cue dueling banjos).

I'm selling all my first year study aids, as 1L has mercifully come to an end.  I've got all the
Emanuel's, Gilberts, examples and explanations, LEEWS and a few other things.  This is directed to people in the Atlanta metro so we can meet instead of having to worry about shipping.  The more of it you buy, the cheaper it will be.  You'll want to buy this now because after you spend a fortune on your casebooks in August, you'll be very poor.  Plus, you need at least some of this stuff to maintain your sanity during the first semester.

I hear you about not wanting to do write on though.  I just got the packet today: 10 page memo plus a really long blue-book exercise just to try to get on.  Luckily, at UGA we have a couple of journals too so 90 or so people make it onto something

I heard public defender jobs are a lot more competitive than you'd think considering the pay sucks. 

Also, here in Atlanta they just laid off s ton of public defenders because of budget crunches.

Thanks for the detailed response.  I guess there is a good reason that type of fact pattern showed up on an old exam.

General Board / Property question

What interest does this create?

"Her will devises Blackacre to her nieces and nephew, Amanda, Brad, and Courtney.  The will states: "My three devisees shall hold fee title as joint tenants with the right of survivorship, provided Amanda shall have the sole right of possession for her lifetime."

This violates the unity of possession required to create a joint tenancy, but tenants in common have the same requirement, so what is the interest?

Since it is a sorrority house would it be a license instead of a lease?  A license holder doesn't have the right to exclusive possession, right?  Kind of like a hotel room where the cleaning lady can come in or a dorm room where an RA could probably come in for inspections without notice.

I read the E&Es in Civ Pro and Torts.  I definitely think this helped me first semester as I knew what was coming in those classes before it was covered.  I don't think contracts and property would have helped as much because those E&Es aren't as well written.
