True or false?

Mutual assent is established only if there is an offer and an acceptance.

I honestly don't know.

Question: Anybody have any specific advice for preparing for closed-book exams. Should I bother making outlines?

Current Law Students / Civ Pro Question
« on: December 08, 2004, 01:21:47 PM »
Hello all. First off, I'm a Paralegal student, not yet a law student. I have a final tonight in a civil procedure class.

Can anyone tell me what the significance is about the distinction between a "past recollection recorded" and a "present recollection revived" when it come to refreshing a witness's memory? I'm a bit stuck.

Thanks in advance

Jumboshrimps is proud to announce that he will be attending UMKC Law this fall. Yesterday's rejection from U of AZ made it official. It's been a long, anticlimactic process and I'm underwhelmed to finally be finished. I am, however, more than ready to get started and very excited for the move. Let the next phase begin!

(goes back to mundane job... playing online poker and reading law school message boards while longing for August... sigh...)

General Off-Topic Board / Poker players?

I've decided to spend most of my time between now and law school playing Texas Hold Em. Any of y'all play? I've noticed a lot of lawyers and law students like to play poker. Maybe there's something to that...

It's a beautiful game that mimicks life, itself in many ways. Actually, it's very much like business. It's part negotiation, part survival by wits, part simple mathematics, and part pure luck. I love it!
