Monday's are brutal. I have class from 10:30 - 9, with just enough time between for lunch, reading, and dinner. Got introduced to my new friends mens rea today. She is kinda rude, but I will crack her shell sooner or later!

So I'm slowly going through and writing out each E&E problem. It takes a while but my legal reasoning skills are dramatically improving. Worth my time?

I like to do E&E problems once or twice in the relevant sections throughout the semester. I use it mainly to practice formatting my responses and getting familiar with applying the issues. It is more of a going through the motions thing for me to stay in the zone.

I don't see how it hurts. It is providing returns for your time by allowing drastic improvement in legal reasoning, which is what is going to help you crush in a couple of months. Seems like time well spent, unless you find something else that takes less time and provides equal returns.

I'm going to email my writing professor to tell her that the opposing party and myself have come to a settlement agreement and that writing this brief will therefore be unnecessary. Chances of success?

Right now I am drafting in the front-middle of the pack, conserving energy, so when the others begin to falter I sprint past them to take the ribbon.

What the fuck is there to love? These shitboomer admins are misleading the hardworking youth then loaning my soldiers up to subsidize their unread legal research.

Just to the tune of a few hundred Gs to work at a shitlaw shingle hanging firm or doc monkeying boiler basements.
