Yeah I was thinking of a completely different person based on the location.

I've officially studied more for finals than I did last semester, and my first final isn't til the 7th. I guess I'll find out if effort really translates to results in my case. If I do worse somehow, I will be left to presume I'm better doing it live and will return to minimal effort.

I love this. Will be appropriating it for my own use during finals this quarter.

TBF, I don't even know who I am anymore.

Also, after the whole Duke thread, I feel a little paranoid about poasting much of anything again. :| Haven't had a scare like that in a while. Although I'll keep up the usual habit of browsing TLS for school. This site is a damn gold mine.

It was more that it brought back memories of trying to stay anonymous and blowing it. Of course, that person royally screwed themselves over because of their own stupidity.

:( Hang in there, bro.

A 3L told me that second semester of 1L was hell on earth for him. This was the only warning I received, but damn did it prove itself to be true.

+1. At least a lot of us seem to be going through something similar. This semester has been awful, I've contemplated dropping out many times, missed a fair amount of classes, slacked on the readings a bit. The material itself just seems much more dry this semester.

This won't end well. As I prepare for exams, the one thing I keep telling myself is "prepare your anus".

So guys, gots another property question...

A grants to B a fee simple absolute for half of his parcel; A retains the other half. They covenant that A will maintain his bushes so that it doesn't overgrow onto B's property. A sells his own parcel to C, but maintains a right of entry. So there is not complete vertical privity between A and C. Thus, B has to prove that the burden ran with A's estate to C.

1) Intent - assume yes
2) Notice - assume yes
3) Touch and Concern - yes
4) Horizontal Privity - yes
5) Vertical Privity - no

So, can B merely enforce this as an equitable servitude, or can he sue A in law for damages because A still retains an interest in the burdened land?

Agreed.

I've been having full on anxiety attacks thinking about my finals, I've been hiding in the library until close regularly, I've started to feel like a paranoid Smeagol worried about how much everyone else knows and how well they'll do... I just need this semester to be over. I cannot wait until Friday night when I get to go back to my fiancee's, get laid, drink beer, play Skyrim, and hang out with cats.

Went to bed early, hoping to get a solid 7 and a half hours of sleep.

Tossed and turned until 2 AM.

Ended up sleeping 4 hours.

Now I feel like I can't even think straight enough to make breakfast, let alone take a final exam. :(

Contracts Question


So, have an exam in a few hours, if anyone has a quick response I'd be grateful.

I'm getting a bit confused as to when I should apply an analysis for:

Warranties vs. Misrepresentation

I feel like I could do either one with this problem I'm looking at.

edited; cause I'm not sure what I'm talking about anymore.

I have to echo everyone's sentiments about this semester. I cannot WAIT to go home for the summer. I still have two more exams to go, but fuck, I am so sick of everyone at my school. I can't wait to hang out with real people again, not these emotionally immature excuses for human beings. I don't think law school would be so bad if the people who were in it weren't so socially inept.

This has brought much needed joy to my life this week. Thank you. I mean, as long as I forget that I'm one of the people getting the meh grade.
The waving at the end is just the best, like the prof who drops the final exam and is all "bye bye, fuckers."

No idea if this helps, but this is my set of rule blocks for misrepresentation:


• Misrepresentation: A misrepresentation is an assertion that is not in accord with the facts (159). Misrepresentation is either material or fraudulent (162). Misrepresentation is an inducing cause if it “substantially contributes”; does not have to be the primary cause. (167).
o Fraudulent Misrepresentation: Fraudulent; consciously or recklessly false and intended to mislead. Does not have to be material. Does have to induce assent. If π is in a position of authority, ∆ is reasonable to rely on those statements and a misrepresentation has occurred if π is wrongfully inducing ∆ to action (169 & 169, Vokes).
• Disadvantage: Cannot get above and beyond K value; better to sue in tort
o Material Misrepresentation: Not consciously/recklessly false; is material (likely to induce assent to anyone). Does have to induce assent; K can be voided/excused. Can be made in good faith. Even something made in good faith, if a misrepresentation is material, it is inequitable to allow the misrepresentor to benefit from these mistakes (Halpert).

I booked the class so I must've done something right. Hopefully that helps a bit.

I've studied more over the last two weeks (far more) than I did for finals last semester, but I slacked off during the year itself. Not sure how that will play out...

Thanks transfer.

One last question, which is kinda sad:

To be unconscionable, the K needs to be Substantively [and / or] Procedurally unconscionable. And or Or?

I've been going through the semester thinking it was And, but apparently I'm wrong?

studied so much less than i did last semester. I also hate law school and everything about it, kinda. So I think knowing that i'm leaving after the year hasn't helped my fear-of-finals cram sessions. They're more like a series of bro-sessions with some hornbooks meandering through here and there.
