Yeah I didn't have too much success with them either. They've been excellent for Property, but that's about it. It's really hit or miss with the Cali lessons.

can someone classify Bs future interest, and tell me why. because of the lack of "and his heirs..." i'm getting stuck between two future interests right now

(note: let's say B is unmarried as of now)
"to A for life, then to B and her heirs if B marries C."

dis is what I think right now, but read it afterwards cuz I want your insights first executory interest or contingent remainder, because technically Bs interest could spring after A dies and interrupt the grantor's reversion; yet it logically is a contingent remainder--particularly hinted by the "then to B" which implies patience. Would this depend on the jurisdiction--or have all jurisdictions abolished the rule of destructibility



someone smart plz answer my damn question. i would hate to have to make human contact with my professor.

I've been doing a lot of property studying lately, and is it just me or does every area of property law involve an elements test?
Its annoying

It's fucking awesome when you compare it to con law where it's just a big clusterfuck of differing viewpoints.

This post makes me hate you a little. On the other hand, my first final isn't for a month and I don't have con law this semester.

Just took my first civ pro exam. I don't have a model answer but I think I got extremely wrecked. Things looked really familar but I was not well enough acquainted with all of the rules so there was a time crunch with planning. Oh well, lesson learned: study, practice, talk to prof, repeat. There is a little over three weeks before that exam. This is doable. Big pain in the butt, but doable. Happy Easter to all those so inclined to celebrate it. I'm sorry if it isn't as happy as it could possibly be, but maybe the Easter bunny will bring us shiny A's for all of our dedication come June or July?

Just got to the library.

From here on out I think I'm taking Ali's approach and focusing solely on practice tests. Practice is how I did well on the LSAT, and practice is what I didn't do last semester. Not going to spend as much time doing rote memorization, which was my biggest time sink in the fall.

But first, some baseball...
