Current Law Students / Multiple Choice Crim law Exams
« on: April 26, 2009, 01:33:37 PM »
Need some multiple choice crim law exams. Did some googling and found some stuff, but was wondering if anyone knew of some good online sources of old tests, as I have gotten tired of parsing through page after page on google. Thanks in advance.

I had an OWI and a PAULA right before my sophomore year of undergrad. It did affect my applications, but I was still able to get into the school I wanted to go to with some wrangling.

Ok, I get what you're saying. I hadn't read a case along those lines, so I didn't know that. So, basically, the transferred intent is tortious regardless of if the original intent was not tortious? And that case wasn't decided on the basis of negligence?

edit: I suppose he wouldn't be liable for battery if it was negligence.

I figured the transferred intent issue, however, he was defending against harm to his property, which according to the restatment you can do. The questions to me are:

1) Was he justified in the action he took to protect his property?
2) If so, is the intent transferred to Tommy tortious?

Johnny shoots his slingshot at April, who had just stolen his bike and was riding away with it, the shot misses April and hits Tommy in the eye. Does Tommy have a cause of action for battery?

I don't think the actual application itself ever requires one but it seems like I had to print something off and sign it for one or two schools.

If you call/email the admissions staff some schools will just straight out tell you. Iowa will I know. I think they weight GPA/LSAT together at about 50%.

I think you might be right about that. It still struck me as really weird though.

So, I've generally heard that if you get in to a school off of their waitlist you shouldn't expect really anything in the way of scholarships. I recently got into my #1 choice off the waitlist and as such was planning on paying full price (even though I'm in state). Lo and behold, 3 weeks later I get an email informing me that I'm being given a full tuition scholarship. Really, really weird.
