Studying and Exam Taking / Re: Briefing - Technicolor In-Book v. Writing

I do both. I color brief in my book and I type them out in my notes. Typing them is so much easier after you've book briefed.

1) In order to sue somebody for something he has done, he needs to either be in the forum state or have property in the forum state because the states are sovereign and do not have endless powers over each other.

2) In order to sue somebody for something concerning his property in the forum state (as opposed to something he has done), you're good to go if the property is in fact in the forum state (for reasons stated in #1).

3) Pennoyer is bad law, because the due process clause of the 14th amendment (which did not exist at the time) has created a scheme making state sovereignty almost irrelevant to the personal jurisdiction analysis.

We read Pennoyer a few weeks ago and this was my interpretation of the case.

General Board / Re: In House Jobs?
« on: September 15, 2006, 06:48:19 PM »
Most in house jobs I've looked at won't talk law school grads straight of of law school. For the most part, they require some firm experience, meaning you have to pay your dues at a law firm before you can work there. Personally, I think the in house gigs are great for when you want to start a family and you'd rather not be working 18 hrs a day. But it's a good to keep in mind that a huge paycut comes with most of those in-house counsel jobs.

Transferring / Transfer timeline/processes
« on: August 19, 2006, 06:47:03 PM »
Can anyone post a timeline for those of us who are thinking about transferring? Like when we should start filling out the applications, when to apply, when we'll hear back etc? Also a list of action items for those who want to transfer (like personal statement, application, LORs etc)? Also, do transfers need to include the same items in their application as pre-1Ls did or is there additional items that need to be sent with the application?

If you don't have time to type all of this out but know of a website that explains the law school transfer timeline/processes throughly. please post a link. Thanks! :)

Studying and Exam Taking / Re: LEEWS CDs or One Day Program?
« on: July 26, 2006, 01:38:10 PM »
I'll speak for the CD/tape version: 

I thought LEEWS was helpful, but it suffered from chronic verbal overpackaging.  What could have easily been imparted to me on one casette took something like six.  I like using his systematic approach to exams, which I believe has improved my performance in my classes.  It's just that his presentation style is incredibly tedious.  If his live presentation is anything like those tapes, I'd hate to have to sit through it.

"Perhaps, when your exam is administered, you find yourself craving pancakes.  Perhaps you wonder why.  Waffles are darn tasty.  Perhaps you're wondering why you would crave pancakes instead of waffles.  Is that a normal response to a law school exam?  What would your professor think of that?  Do you worry about how this might affect your grades, or your chance to score that all-important clerkship?  By now, the students in my live program are leaving, with angry looks on their faces..."

I exaggerate but slightly.  If you get the CD, skip forward liberally.  The time you save will be your own.   ;)



Did you work on the CD program before 1L or before finals or both?
