Current Law Students / Re: What is single intent/dual intent jurisdiction?
« on: December 15, 2006, 10:07:21 AM »
In a single intent jurisdiction, plaintiff only has to prove one element of a battery cause of action (intent to cause contact that was harmful or offensive OR that the contact actually occured.)  In a dual intent jurisdiction, plaintiff has to prove both both aspects of the battery claim.

If you're going to do a post-mortem, at least wait a few weeks until the emotion of the moment is gone.  Then you can analyze how you did without the emotion clouding your view.  After all, if you wait a few weeks and then deconstruct the exam, you may realize you did better than you thought you did.

Relax and Have a Happy RamaHanaKwanzmas!!!!!!

The thing to remember is that states can provide more protections than the Federal Government but not less.  So, under the guise of public safety, the state can further limit your client's access to monkeys.  If there were a constitutional right to own a monkey, then your client would have a shot.  Because of the 10th Amendment, I don't even see a viable due process violation.  Of course, I haven't had Con Law yet, so take it for what its worth.

Go home and watch the Sixers lose...again >:(

no more AI .. do you konw that u're going to get jack and nothing in return?

do you remember who jeff hornaceck and andrew lang are? i didn't think so

As a matter of fact, I remember exactly who those individuals are. Hornacek and Lange (along with Tim Perry) are the bunch of stiffs that Phoenix sent to the Sixers for Charles Barkley.  As for trading AI, its sad, but in order to get better, they have to trade him.  They probably won't get much in return, but as long as they can get a bunch of contracts that expire at the end of the year, then they can at least re-build the team.  At least they'll get a shot at Greg Odin next year.

Prior to Finals: About 3 hours of class a day, 5 days a week + 4-6 hours/night M-TH + 6 hours or so on Saturday and Sunday

Finals: 12 hours/day

Go home and watch the Sixers lose...again >:(

It seems that, although the disability adds 5 years, it might be irrelevant.  That is because most jurisdictions require a shorter time for someone to take title through adverse possession when they have color of title, as B does in this case.  So, depending on that statute's disposition toward color of title as compared to regular adverse possession, I would say that the disability and color of title variations could cancel each other out.  Probably your professor just wanted you to argue each side and doesn't really care which side you come out in favor of.

Either way, relax.  There's nothing you can do about it now anyway.

I used the Q&A sample test questions that Lexis puts out.  I found them helpful.  Also, I used the flow charts in the Crunch Time outline.  Those helped crystalize the steps of analysis for diversity and discovery.  Just relax and do practice exam questions and you should be great.  Good Luck.

Took my civ pro exam today.  Its weird, but I don't feel bad or good.  I don't know if that's a good thing or not.  I've heard that if you feel like you did crappy, then it means you probably did ok and vice versa.  But what if you feel neither?  Is that a bad sign?

Oh well, nothing I can do about it now...On to Torts, whoppee!!!!! :-\
