If there are no canned briefs, try the frozen briefs section aisle of your grocery store.  It works with corn and peas.

LOL . . . although I prefer fresh organic briefs.   :D

General Board / Re: Questions from non-law school friends

They put this in the context of crazies who wander into the library at least a couple of times of year seeking the solution to all their troubles in whatever law student happens to be in there studying.

This happens more often than you might think, and it's one of the reasons that our school's library is closed to the public.  I work at the library desk and I get a call at least once a month from someone asking for legal advice.  They get really nasty when I tell them that no one can give it to them.  "But I just have one question . . . "

I briefed each rule sort of like briefing a case.  Admittedly, this wasn't my own idea, because my professor made us do it and turn them in every so often.  I found it so helpful that I ended up doing it for most of the rules that we studied. 

Here's a example for Rule 68:

PARTIES: Defending parties
ACTION: Settlement
   If offer accepted, either party may file, clerk enters J
   If offer not accepted, it is withdrawn/inadmissible
   If final J is not more favorable than offer, offeree pays post-offer costs
   Subsequent offers OK
Pre-trial: More than 10 days before trial
Post-J: not less than 10 days before liability hearing
SANCTIONS: None specified

Diet Mountain Dew.  I usually don't have to hit it until the middle of the semester, but this year I'm already "using" at least once a day.   :D

it is difficult and saddening to think that these people will be in a very important position of power, if they graduate.

I think you hit the nail on the head right there.

How about a suit with flip-flops?  That would be dope.

I do that all the time if I work and have class on the same day.  I just carry my stupid uncomfortable heels with me and put them on right before I go to work. 

It looks especially nice with a skirt suit.   :D

I don't see the MCQs posted in the school's website. Only the essay Qs and model answers.

Most professors don't release their multiple choice questions because it's too much work to write them in the first place, much less write new ones every year.

I really liked Chirelstein's Federal Income Tax.  The E&E for tax is decent as well.    For Evidence, the Roadmap is good, but don't buy the E&E.  It's terrible.  Hope this helps!

Golf, golf, and more golf.  I used to work in a place where nothing got done if it didn't get done on the golf course.  I got tired of feeling left out, so I took lessons and now I can beat the boys.   ;)

When I was applying two years ago, Barry University was handing out money left and right.  I think they're even provisionally ABA-accredited now.   ;)
