Socratic Method / Re: Do u get called on once or more than once???
« on: November 24, 2006, 04:31:21 PM »
I have yet to get cold called (two of my three doctrinal profs don't do cold calls), but I have to say that when my civ pro professor calls on others and they're not prepared, it is one of the most uncomfortable feelings there is.  She doesn't yell, she just stands at the front of the room.  Meanwhile, the silence in the class is absolutely deafening.  Finally, after about a minute or two, she asks "Are you prepared today?" As if it wasn't obvious that the moron is not prepared.  I think I'd much rather have a screamer.

General Board / Civil Procedure Flow Chart
« on: September 20, 2006, 11:58:49 PM »
Does anyone know where I can get a sample flow chart for Civ Pro?  I am planning on doing one myself and have started outlining.  I'm just having a hard time conceptualizing the best way to set up the flow chart.  Any help is, of course, appreciated.

In Torts, we were discussing the sudden emergency doctrine case where the guy has the heart attack and hits the two cars.  The kid in the back (who looks like Frodo from Lord of the Rings) made some ridiculous point and concluded by saying "Why should the people who got killed have to pay because they got hit by some idiot."  Like the guy woke up, looked in the mirror and said "I think I'll have a heart attack and kill a few people on the way today."  Moron

I'll start with this pearl of wisdom from some idiot in my property class:

"Racism really doesn't exist anymore."

Please feel free to add on as it might provide a laugh.

General Board / Re: do law firms drug test?
« on: August 18, 2006, 11:10:14 PM »
Its not whether they do or not, but that they can drug test.  I would hate to see you piss away (literally) a chance at a great job just to smoke a little weed.

I don't understand this.  The fact that they could, conceivably, drug test isn't relevant, because none of them do.

Wow!!! How intelligent and well informed you are that you can speak intelligently on the hiring practices of EVERY law firm in the United States.  You should quit law school and have your own 1-900 psychic hotline.

General Board / Re: case briefing..it sucks
« on: August 18, 2006, 10:20:23 AM »
I would think that briefing would make putting the outline together a lot easier, especially if you type the briefs onto the computer.  At least I hope it does, cause that's my plan.

General Board / Re: State Court or Federal Court
« on: August 18, 2006, 10:16:25 AM »
I would think that the main reason is just familiarity.  If a lawyer is more experienced in state court as opposed to federal court, he/she would probably have a better feel for how the judges like to run their courts.  I would think it would be like playing a home game as opposed to a road game.  Most people, I would guess are just more comfortable working in surroundings that they are more comfortable in.

General Board / Re: Is buying the newest edition really necessary?
« on: August 18, 2006, 10:12:58 AM »
As long as there are no new cases added into the new edition, I wouldn't think that it would be a problem.  Although, the page numbers might be a bit off and it would be missing any other new material that was added to the new edition.
