General Board / Classifying Legal Writing Teachers for Reference Purposes
« on: January 09, 2008, 12:59:19 PM »
Hello friends,

As you know, some jobs 'prefer one law professor and one other reference.'  Some prefer employment references.  Some prefer one reference from each side of the Jedi Religion.

Are 3L legal writing teachers classified as 'professors' or 'other' for this purpose? 

Right at the moment I am considering it a judgment call, but I wanted to poke around and see if there is any binding authority on this issue.  ;-)

1L job search / Summer Judicial Internships?
« on: December 28, 2007, 09:54:17 PM »
Hey buddies,

I've found listings for basically every other sort of summer job -- anyone have the scoop on these?  Are you just meant to send unsolicited cover letters + resumes to judges, or...? 

Thanks for any advice.

1L job search / Philadelphia 1L ideas? (non-Philly school)
« on: December 18, 2007, 01:27:23 AM »
I'm a Philly-area person looking to spend the 1L Summer in the Philadelphia area or BucksMont. 

I'm not from a Philly-area school... so far I have applied to some public interest jobs but nothing really standing out.

Federal Courts are restricted to work-study, eh?  Sucks for me. 


No, my school is not stellar (third tier).  My grades obviously aren't in but will be somewhere in between stellar and lousy.  ;-)

General Board / CivPro Q (Impleader v Complete Diversity)
« on: December 15, 2007, 10:24:13 PM »
Citizen A (PA) files a good diversity suit against Citizen B (OH).  Citizen B files a valid rule 14 impleader against Citizen C (PA).

I know this doesn't destroy diversity (at least I hope I know that!), because we look to the claim as originally filed. But I realized in studying that I don't know where to cite for this.  Free cookies for help!

General Board / In most classes, is the best answer a perfect answer?
« on: December 12, 2007, 03:13:31 PM »
I realize there is no uniform response to this and it is dependent on the class, but in my situation I thought I did well on a closed-book exam and am now thinking over between 1 and 3 points that I failed to include.

For upperclassmen - is the 'A' grade in most classes restricted to the full-points answer, or is it that ideal answer very rarely reached by anyone?

PS - Obviously if I was sane / emotionally stable I would just shut up and see how it goes in a few weeks.  But you clicked on this too so you are possibly nuts as well. ;-)

General Board / Contract Law Q
« on: December 11, 2007, 03:45:24 PM »
I have a contract with you that says you will bake me chocolate cookies.

"A clause stipulates that if you are late in baking chocolate cookies, you owe me $1/day."

Is this a stipulated damages clause that precludes coming after you for other sorts of damages?  Or does it only say that you will owe me $1/day for lateness, leaving other questions of damages open?
