Current Law Students / Re: Need creative arguments

using that definition buddha supplied, i would say your argument centers around the definition of "better" in relation to school associations. it's easy to say they aren't "bettering" the school with this suit, but u gotta get cases where "better" or a synonym of, was defined and show how this clearly does not meet that definition or serve any legitimate purpose the association was formed for.

u may already know all this and i am stating the obvious but i'll give a shot -

first you have to determine what cause of action can they bring. what right in the constitution are they saying is being infringed. what clauses can they use for their argument. etc. then, once u know this, try to look up the elements of that cause of action. once u have identified the elements of that action, you need to look up elements to those elements. its a pain in the ass, but there are cases that say numerous things are required to establish each element. pick one of these that the parents do not fulfill(sp?). then u can say, that they do not meet the bare requirements of their action, and therefore they have no standing.

or something like that.

Lipper, what school do you go to if you don't mind me asking, also if you know anything about St. Johns, Hofstra, Brooklyn, or NYLS specifically it would be amazingly helpful, cause i seem to be having this post acceptance fear that my life is over once i begin school

i go to albany. my man, obviously law school is going to eat up all your free time. hell - during the week, i am in the library from 5pm - 10pm doing work for the next day. during the weekend, its a break. a needed break. however, realize that you wont be able to go out and get $hitfaced every weekend. i just got my summary judgment memo assigned last week, which means no more going out till it gets finished, which is why i had to make last night balls to the walls. people in law school aren't dorky. those are med students/grad students in physics/chem, etc. obviously we have our fair share of dorky people, but i would say for the most part, the majority of people aren't dorks.

Current Law Students / Contracts Supplement
« on: February 11, 2005, 05:29:09 AM »
any suggestions on what the best contracts commercial supplement is?
I just bought the Contracts: E&E, anyone have this? did i just waste my cash?

honestly - there really isn't a whole lot u can do to prepare yourself for the experience of law school. sure, u can go buy study aids and all that, but it wont give u an all-out edge. i really think there isn't a way to prepare. so, that said, drink a lot the summer before. drink like u haven't drank before. dont get me wrong, u will have time to drink in LS, i go out every friday night. but the summer before is when u can do it and not feel the tremendous guilt that accompanies going out. also, summer before is when u can go out and get tanked and not suffer through a hangover in the library the next day.

no it didn't. ur a law student and u didn't catch this? it states the acts have to be committed at the university; a law school board is fair game.

Current Law Students / Re: PROPERTY: Tenancy at Will
« on: January 31, 2005, 07:37:17 AM »
i haven't covered this in class but i'll take a shot.

either one can terminate it. a contract provision that would say ONLY the landlord or ONLY the tenant can terminate the tenancy would be void.

just a guess.

ok give exactly what they ask for, nothing more and nothing less. usually they ask for offense, penalty imposed, where it happened, etc.

My disclose consisted of this:

Date, Offense, Court, Penalty

and that was it. i wouldn't include anything about how the cops were real a$$holes, cause u honestly have no proof, and its gonna seem like u are putting the blame on someone else where really, u wanna take responsibility for ur actions.

What u did is no big deal. it won't affect you int he admissions game. just disclose it and you'll be fine. i know friends with misdemeanors in my law school class, it didn't hurt them.
