use of the word s"sufficient" & "reasonable" by students
« on: September 14, 2005, 12:43:33 AM »
Just out of curiosity, has anyone noticed that too many people at or in law school us the word "sufficient" in matters that are outside the realm of its legal use.

If thatís the case, does it annoy the sh*t out of you?

Its really out of hand.  You are having a simple conversation regarding going out for a beer after class and this word comes up.  I dont remember the exact conversation i was having with this girl but it was something along the lines of having 2 drinks will be sufficient for me to still get home on time and finish my assigment.

People!! the LSAT is over, i'm glad you all scored really well on it to get into this school, please refrain from using the word "sufficient" outside of discussions where it is pertinent to the legal topic.


Thank you.

Professors use it excessively too.  They feed the habit.

Just a general statement. It's funny how, for a profession that's founded on the practitioners being smart and articulate, you earn absolutely no points with your fellow classmates and future fellow lawyers for being so in law school.

But you're right some sh-t is just annoying.

That'll be sufficient, thanks.

I haven't had too much experience with that word being used too much.  People around here seem to be stuck on used the phrase, "reasonably foreseeable" like it's going out of style!!!!

Oh man...you took my line.
I think "reasonable" should be added to the list.
