Job Search / Summer Judicial Internships?
« on: December 28, 2007, 07:54:17 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.

Current Law Students / Re: tips for memorzing for closed book exam

Can I just say CivPro has got to be the most ridiculous class to take closed-book?  If I ever had to do that I would be hoping for about a C-.

Job Search / Philadelphia 1L ideas? (non-Philly school)
« on: December 17, 2007, 11:27:23 PM »
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.  ;-)

Current Law Students / Re: CivPro Q (Impleader v Complete Diversity)

Hate to answer my own question, but after reviewing I think I've got it.

The impleader is a matter of supplemental jurisdiction (1367).  There are no diversity requirements on it and it will not destroy diversity of the original case.  The only exception is if the ORIGINAL PLAINTIFF would amend his complaint to try to bring a suit lacking complete diversity.  1367(b). 

If someone could confirm I would be grateful.  Yay for spending Saturday night on this sort of crap.  :D

Current Law Students / CivPro Q (Impleader v Complete Diversity)
« on: December 15, 2007, 08:24:13 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!

Right - so the highest few answers get the A, just wondering how high the high usually is.  Probably a stupid question.  ;-0

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. ;-)

Current Law Students / Contract Law Q
« on: December 11, 2007, 01:45:24 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?
