A fellow student recommended a Contracts supplement to me by Chirelstein. Does anyone know if this work is reputable?

General Board / SCOTUS on Testimonial Evidence
« on: May 12, 2009, 02:18:42 AM »
Has anyone else taken Evidence recently and is waiting to see how the Court rules in Melendez-Diaz v. Massachusetts? Anyone have any opinions as to what the outcome should be?

Widener U School of Law / Re: Wilmington commute to NY....

Oh, and Widener has decent placement in NY. However, most students practice in PA, NJ, and especially Delaware. Widener is the only law school in the state and has a pretty close relationship with the courts here. Because of Delaware's court's reputation as a national/international leader in corporate/business law, a lot of students take advantage of that opportunity.

I think the commute would be INSANE and would advise against it. I'm not all that familiar with different areas of NY, but even if your talking about somewhere on Long Island, which I'm fairly positive is one of the most southern parts of the state, your still looking at a 2 hour + commute. That's just nuts. You'd literally be losing hours of both study and free time; to do that day-in and day-out is really going to wear on your sense of well-being. If you're on the fence about actually living on campus, I'd say your only option is to forgo enrollment. I know some students that make a 1 hour commute and they say it's killing them.

General Board / Re: NO ONE CAN ANSWER THIS HEARSAY PROBLEM!!!

I don't even think you have a viable 403 argument here. A clear example of non-hearsay is an utterance introduced to show notice or knowledge--when notice/knowledge of a person is relevant. So here, the utterance is relevant not to prove the fact of a broken elevator, but as indicating that the defendant gained notice/knowledge of its defective condition. The words spoken have legal significance independent of their truth. Actual proof of its defective condition would have to be proved by other evidence in the interim (i.e. between when the words were spoken and the resulting injury) You won't get anywhere with 403 because 'notice' triggers a duty in a negligence action. The words are prejudicial, but not unduly prejudicial.

General Board / Re: Where do you get E&Es?
« on: April 04, 2009, 07:11:23 PM »
DO NOT BUY THE PROPERTY E&E...it sucks. Any other supplement should do you better. Also, E&E's should always be available at your school's bookstore. It's sort of weird that no responses said that.

Avoid the Property E&E at all costs--it's absolutely horrible. I showed my professor some portions of it that I found troublesome, and she was surprised it was even published.
