Thanks. Yes, I was referring to the Restatement (Second) of Contracts. Just wanted to confirm that it applies to all K's; not like the UCC Article 2 that only applies to the sale of goods.

The RSC applies to all K's (goods, services, etc.), right?

if you're taking it in a blue book, sketch out some notes or a like mini-outline right there on the first page before you start writing the exam.  it helps the professor see your thought process and that you're organized.

also, when you start writing, go straight to the issues.  unless your professor has made clear he/she wants a recitation of each rule of law, with complete definitions of each element, you should dive right into the analysis because that's where all the points are .  you'll still get points for knowing the rules too; in a good exam essay, you should be able to couch the rules into your analysis (parentheticals are a helpful tool for this) without wasting time writing them all out beforehand.  this might be one reason you're short on time in your practice exams.

This is a good suggestion. I guess I've been to lengthy on the rules.

Current Law Students / Tips for Final Exams (Torts)
« on: November 21, 2007, 07:42:22 PM »
Does anyone have any tips for taking a Torts Exam? I took a couple of practice exams and realized that time is VERY limited. I race through the exam to include all my thoughts (whatever I think the prof is looking for). Sometimes I feel like I have to exclude some info.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to effectively tackle the Torts Exam?

Thanks in advance!

Thanks. I'm in the NY area. Where do I look for jobs aside from my school's website?

Current Law Students / Summer Jobs
« on: November 12, 2007, 07:11:22 PM »
I'm currently a 1L. I was just wondering when to start, if its not already too late, to look for a summer job. I most likely want to work at a firm where I can get experience that will look good on my resume. I also want it to be paid.

Any advice is appreciated. Thanks!

Current Law Students / Benefit of Making Outlines?
« on: November 11, 2007, 07:58:10 PM »
I was just wondering what the benefits of outlining are?? I find it useful for torts, but with regard to civ pro and K I find supplementary outlines sufficient. They organize the material well. I've written outlines for midterms and didn't find writing them so useful. I feel as though my time could have been spent better preparing for the tests. I don't glean any extra knowledge by writing stuff out. Plus, I can always look at upper classman.

So, what are the benefits of making your own outline???????
Any thoughts?


Current Law Students / Re: Case Briefs?!?!
« on: August 02, 2007, 11:07:14 AM »
Are you going to NYLS?  I'm doing the exact same thing...I've done briefs for the case, but having never done one before I want to take a look at what another brief has focused in on. 

Yea I am. I did the case brief, but I also wanted to see what someone else's looked like.
