is it time to dig up that old thread "let's scare the 1Ls" or is it too soon?

Nah. . ..I'd hold off until the summer. A lot of them are still celebrating their undergrad graduation

Don't do it. Ole Miss will forever be the only relevant law school in Mississippi, and you'll be made painfully aware of that fact time and again.


Have you ever even been to Mississippi, or at the very least spent any significant time in the legal community there?

If not, and I have a sneaking suspicion that you won't be asking in the affirmative to at least one of the questions posed above,then.......

Kindly shut the @#!* up.

And even if you can answer in the affirmative to both question, I'm sure the OP would like for you to shut.the.@#!*.up.

kthanksbi

Are you black? 

Unashamedly.....why does that matter?

I was trying to figure out if your attack on Ninja has anything to do with your being black, as he has made some comments about blacks being "entitled" and more. 

No, my attack on Ninja was based on him exhibiting a prima facie case of douchebaggery.

Someone put on his big boy lawyer pants today, maybe even all by himself. Prima Facie!

I was thinking the samething.  Was he trying to compensate for something he lacks with these words in his sentences? 

That's pretty much what I was getting out of it.

I meant to say "answer" in the affirmative. I was writing in a rush. I apologize for having a large vocabulary.

Happens to the best of us. ;)

We all have large vocabularies (at least, hopefully). We don't all feel it necessary to work "prima facie" and "[answer] in the affirmative" into our posts. There's a time and a place for everything.

I was being facetious snarky on both occasions. ;D You're pretty straight forward on here Ninja, so you shouldn't mind when I do the same. ;) Plus I was stressed from finals. But the point I was making with the OP is that a JD from Miss College, while it won't get him a job at Skadden, will allow him to practice law provided he pass the par. If he wants to be a lawyer and doesn't mind the debt, go to Miss College and become a lawyer. Your school will only get you to a certain point.

All this is based on the assumption that it's an ABA accredited school, or at least provisionally accredited.

So you guys aren't all over this white fire fighter from Connecticut discrimination case?

Finals, yo. I'll speak in depth on it tomorrow. In short, NH was entitled to a JML. They threw out the test. Nobody got promoted. No discrimination occurred. But of course Scalia and Thomas will probably ignore all substantial legal analysis, and start beating the reverse discrimination/AA horse.

I'll give a real analysis tomorrow.

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Contracts Exam Writing Question
« on: May 05, 2009, 04:26:53 PM »
I usually start like this....

The issue is whether (fill in issue). Since this is a K for the sale of goods, the UCC applies. The SOF also applies b/c this is for the sale of goods equal to or greater than $500.

Then move to your analysis, counter-arguments, etc.

If the fact pattern doesn't say that it's a state that adopted the UCC, I would then go....

OTOH, common law rules could apply. Since the fact pattern doesn't state whether we are in a jurisdiction that has adopted the UCC, blah blah move to analysis.

If time is an issue, and it appears to be an obvious UCC question, hit the UCC first. I always go for the low hanging fruit first to get the for sure easy points. Move to the exceptions, alternatives, etc later. At a minimum, you've showed your professor that you're aware that it depends on if the state has the UCC. Nuances like that in an exam can be the difference in deciding what side of the curve you end up on.

But again, that's just my mode of attack.  It's not the destination so much as the journey that took you there is what matters in law school exams. YMMV.

Rule #4,080 why I'll never become president. See, I'd be petty and pick someone like Lani Guinier, Derrick Bell, or Charles Ogletree, and dare what's left of the repubs to block the confirmation.
