If you're failing undergrad classes you probably don't quite have the mental maturity for law school. I'd take a year off and make sure you know what you're doing prior to throwing away all the $ and time that is law school.

You're done with school and you're still sitting on this board during the afternoon? That's just sad.

O did not breach any of the present covenants you ass. I have a pretty simple question and I can't find the answer (my textbook is at school). Does the general warranty covenant warrant against future conveyances of the property by the grantor. My guess is that it does not protect against this action just like the quiet enjoyment warranty does not warrant against this, but I'm not 100% sure . . . only 93% sure.

Current Law Students / Another Property Question From Me.

O transfers Blackacre to A who does not record. O transfers Blackacre to B who does record. B is the rightful owner. My question is this: What cause of action does A have against O?

I know he doesn't have any action under a covenant of quiet enjoyment because that only warrants against claims that would arise from acts that occurred prior to the grant from O to A. Is there a cause of action under a covenant of general warranty or is the same true in that it only protects against claims of superior title arising from acts prior to the grant from O to A. How can A get to this O a-hole?

Suppose if you will that you are in a Race-notice Jurisdiction and the following occurs:

O conveys Blackacre to A, who does not record the deed from O to A. O conveys Blackacre to B, who has no knowledge of the transaction between O and A. B does not record. Who owns Blackacre?

Since neither recorded I'm not sure if A would win since he was first in time and would win a common law, or if B would win because she was a SBP without notice. I'm guessing A wins under common law.

As a representative of the school I can say with confidence that this is not indicative of the overall quality of education you will receive or the general experience you will have. It is, however, representative of the quality of plumbing, the quality of decor, and the quality of fire hazards you will experience.

Seriously though, can't you always invalidate the transfer by assuming the world explodes? How do you think this argument would play out on an exam?

Sounds like you're headed for a proud career in the field of personal injury & medical malpractice. On the plus side, if you play your cards right you'll be able to have your face plastered on the side of a bus.

WTF? Is this outdated piece of garbage going to be on the exam?


I just don't get it. Seems like I can always come up with some situation to invalidate every life within 21 years (e.g. world explodes).

Can anybody lay it out clear for me? I've tried the examples & explanations, but that just seemed to confound matters even more. This is the only concept I have ever encountered and attempted to learn that I can't seem to understand.

@#!* IT!
