Current Law Students / Recommended study aids for Patents class?

Can anyone suggest a commercial outline and/or exercise books for a Patent Law class?

Oops. Just slightly embarrassing.

I googled for "property law essay questions" and
didn't even think to google "property exam."

Not sure what that says about my research abilities.
Or perhaps Westlaw has adversely affected my googling ...

Current Law Students / Sample Property Exam Questions
« on: April 02, 2009, 03:46:59 PM »

Does anyone have any sample Property exam questions that
they'd be willing to share? Or know where I could get some?

I know that exam questions & model answers vary a lot from
professor to professor; I just wanted a general idea of the
types of questions one might see in Property.

I've also ordered a copy of Siegel's Property and will
hit up some 2Ls, but was hoping someone on this board might
have other suggestions -


The University of Iowa, generally (not just the law school),
is extremely well known for its writing programs.

The main disadvantage to the law school is that it's
not really close to any major cities.

Hmm. Interesting.

I think the bottom line though is that the adcomms
generally don't make any decisions before November,
with few exceptions (e.g., Duke, GULC).

So you may get first read ... but you're still competing
against the same group of applicants.

There's no advantage to applying ridiculously early
versus just early.

So long as you apply before the EA deadline, or,
if there is no EA deadline, November 1st, I don't
think it makes much difference.

They probably won't even look at your app before
November 1st anyway. A lot of the adcomms aren't
even around in early fall -- they're off doing
campus visits.

Just get your stuff together by September, and wait
until the schools say they're accepting applications.
Then go ahead and apply.

I'm not saying you should apply in February or March.
I'm just saying that October is probably just as good
as September.

Of NYC schools I'm in with a substantial scholarship at Fordham

Congrats on UMich and run far away from Fordham.  Far away.

What is up with the Fordham hating?

Granted it's not T14, and if you have the opportunity
to go to a T14, you should, but still ...

The "run far away" comment is completely unwarranted.

As for Michigan:

See, this is the weird thing ...

It doesn't look like an F class visa
would allow you to register for part-time:

... but, as I said, both Rutgers and Seton Hall
have a number of part-time law students who are
foreign nationals.

So there must be a way to do it.

Unless green card holders ("permanent residents") are
considered foreign nationals for LSAC reporting purposes?

Talk to the schools.

Credited. The schools will know best.

LSAC data shows that 4% of the students
in Rutgers-Newark's part-time program
are foreign nationals. So it's certainly

You still need to figure out (a) what kind
of visa you need, and (b) whether the schools
you are applying to are ok with it.

If you can't get work authorization, then
some schools may want to know why you
are applying part-time, since you won't
be working.

Also, I *believe* that you are not supposed
to indicate an intention to stay in the US
if you are on a temporary visa such as a
student visa. I would think that going to
a US law school indicates an intention to
stay in the US, but that's just me.

You need an expert.

Talk to (1) the admissions office and/or
(2) the international student office at
different schools.

I would suggest Rutgers-Newark or Seton Hall
as the New Jersey schools get the most
international students.
