I think this may be a little more formal than just a "get together". I'll stick with business casual but I wouldn't think jeans would be appropriate.

I think you have to continue to think that way if you want to continue practicing law.
Ok, so Iím thinking two issues here: (if you can do that!?)
1. Whether the Unites States Constitution provides a right to privacy that encompass a woman's right to terminate her pregnancy.
2. Whether States have a "compelling state interest" in overriding that right to privacy for the sake of the fetus's potential life.
the answer to 1. is yes
the answer to 2. is yes/no and viability is the key. In the early stages of pregnancy the womanís right to privacy is paramount, but later in the pregnancy the viability of fetus takes precedence and the womanís protected right is forfeit to a "compelling state interest" to protect potential life.
damn, it may be wrong but when i type it out like that it doesn't sound half bad!
what do you think?
I'm going to brief it, but after reading the case i have no idea where to start! I know about IRAC but there are so many issues (and sup issues) that i'm not sure how detailed it should be. My mother is an attorney so i'm going to go sit down with her tonight and disucss it. I'll let you guys know what/how i do.
