I'm trying to figure out why the Torts E&E has no mention of False imprisonment, trespass to land, trespass to chattels, or conversion. Something tells me i'm missing something??


Some professors do not cover intentional torts. Why, I don't know, but it must be a pretty common approach for Glannon to have ignored them in his book. Intentional torts are also really, really easy in comparison with negligence.


So having the black letter law and the casenotes is generally sufficient preparation for the exam, is what you're saying?


I think so. If your torts final were heavily focused on intentional torts you might want to refer to a supplement, but stuff like trespass to land/chattels is really straightforward and it's hard for me to imagine a supplement telling you anything you didn't already learn in class.

Kalvano is a wealth of impossibly fantastic expressions. Does it come from being a Texan?

I feel left behind on this thread because my first class isn't until Monday. I've done reading for Contracts and Criminal Law but that's it so far. Twiddling my thumbs.

Have I referred to anything as "the bee's knees"?

I love that one.

So apparently light interference on a property is not a trespass to land, but undetectable metallic particles are. Even if they both result in provable damages. Got it.

wht do you mean by "light interference"? do you mean interference that isnt severe or a blocking of the sun's rays?

light rays reflecting from racetrack stadium lights onto a drive-in movie theater causing poor display resulting in a loss of business.

Note: this is not important. I'm just venting at my first set a of cases that sequentially contradict each other.

Also, I finally gave in and started typing my notes. Too many professors are too disorganized, and I got tired of them going back to some topic from the beginning of class.

Is law school making anyone else bipolar? At one moment I feel like I'm "getting it" and the next I'm totally lost. It's probably partially because of the stylistic differences of my profs though. Bleh.

I'm glad we share so many sentiments, although typically that bipolarness is a result of going from studying torts to doing LWRAP assignments.

I, and about 3 other people, were the only handwriters. I'm still worried about retention, but I guess I'll make do.

Ironically, I write much faster than I type.

is this an appropriate time to make another joke about how old you are?

to be fair, i'd handwrite if i thought it was feasible. i know for a fact i retain info better when i write than when i type. i'm just hoping constantly rereading, re-organizing, and adding to my notes will make the difference.

I changed from handwriting my notes to typing them and it sucks. I feel like I'm not really there in class. Could possibly be from Facebook, but I want to go back to handwriting.
