Current Law Students / Re: Really random question about trusts
« on: October 16, 2008, 03:09:17 PM »
I am working on a paper on business trusts and can't seem to find an answer anywhere to what I would like to know as I work on it... I am taking trusts and estates right now but we are still working on wills issues.... my question is basically, can an individual create a trust in which they are simultaneously settlor, trustee, and beneficiary? and if so, are there any limits on it?

Why would they want to?

It reminds me of concepts of destructibility of contingent remainders through merger... when it all gets vested in the same party, the instrument becomes moot, does it not?

I thought this thread was going to be about Palin's performance in tomorrow's debate.

I frequently find them to be more insightful and more important than the case itself.  I know they certainly get discussed in most classes, so I'd say they're fairly important.

Just remember, it's not a lie, if you believe it.

Incoming 1Ls / "Black's Law Dictionary" - Useful?
« on: June 21, 2008, 09:17:12 PM »
A relative knows I'm heading to Law School and was considering purchasing this for me as a gift if I thought it'd be useful...what say you, LSD?  Do people use this, or does the internet suffice for this type of material?

Do many people work at the same firm or other locale during their 1L AND 2L summer?

Will you be going to a T10?
