Nothing we can do about that, though, except push ourselves as hard as possible.

i have thought the same thing; however, i still maintain that the students that performed "poorly" last semester still knew the BLL cold... application of law to fact is a different beast. true, some will improve in their application skills but the majority will stay the same. it seems like the material this semester is a little more dense and may require more sophisticated application... i am hoping that my theory is correct b/c i think harder material may be to my benefit... i have been grinding away this semester (but more lackadaisically) but it seems way different as compared to last semester where i was neurotic as a mother fucker.

also, i still sometimes feel like last semester was a fluke :? i really wanna kill it this semester and jump a few ranks :mrgreen:


I can tell you I'm going to plummet down the rankings this semester. Feel dazed and confused.

it's human nature to be super nervous right before exams. everyone doubts themselves a little bit.

Once you get to the point where you're stressing over the littlest nuances and/or splits in authority, I it's a good place to be. I think that's where I am right now for my exams that are this week.

Are some of these synonymous? Are they formed any differently? Do they give rise to different remedies?

quasi-K = one party conferred a benefit to another but you are not suing on the K rather you are suing for compensation for the benefit conferred (sometimes there is a K, sometimes there is no K but b/c you cannot sue for expectancy damages (K damages) you sue in quasi K for better relief)
K in fact = oral/ written exchange of promises
K in law or implied K in law (IIRC these are interchangeable) = unstated/written terms that the law (UCC) supplies that become part of the K implicitly

K for goods (written but does not specify time for payment) = K in fact for the sale of goods
UCC 2-310 supplies time for payment "payment is due at the time and place at which the buyer is to receive the goods" = K term implied in law


Thanks much! What was confusing me is that even when you have an actual, valid K (although formed implicitly), the term quasi-K is used to refer to the fact that you pursue restitution rather than expectation damages. I thought quasi-K was just for non-legally enforceable agreements for which the court awards a remedy anyway in order to avoid injustice.

Moment of truth. Good luck everyone!

Question: What gives the right to a Assignor or Subleassor to go after an assignee or subleasee for unpaid rent? Is there Privity of Estate between the two or is there Privity of Contract or something else?

Sublessor is a just a straight up landlord to sublessee; sublessee pays rent to him. Sublessor continues paying rent to initial Landlord as Tenant. For the Assignor to go after Assignee they are in privity of contract. Assignor is there as a Surety in case Assignee defaults on rent to Landlord. Assignor can go after Assignee if the former has to cover the latter's rent to the Landlord in an indemnification action.

assignor/assignee are ONLY in privity of k.

sublessor/sublessee are in privity of k AND privity of estate. privity of estate since the sublessor gets his right of possession back when the sublease is up and can move back in.

More-or-less finished my IP OL. Just need to incorporate the rest of the supplements into it, which shouldn't be bad.

Need to make the final touches on Property tomorrow, but that's almost complete.

Crim and Con Law complete.

Need to make separate policy sheets for classes, but I'll figure that out during reading period I guess.

Didn't quite finish my goal of completing all my OLs by the end of the weekend... but last day of class is Wed, so as long as I finish before then, I'll be on schedule.

What subject bro?


Con law. Took a 5 hour nap and finished up an hour ago. Going to watch Vikings, line edit that bitch, take another hour, do a final edit, and then submit it and never think about Con law again except when I thrown in some random doctrine to win political debates with non-lawschool friends when I am clearly in the wrong.

Might help you start, nothing in particular.

Got my first exam tomorrow, closed book Civ Pro except our own rule books. Feeling good about this, no McIntyre shit and part of its T/F Explain. Property is my last exam though, closed book and 2/3's has basically nothing to do with property, old ass teacher prides himself on teaching a "skills" course, not property. Pretty sure I'm just banking on everyone fucking up to beat the curve there. Can't imagine anyone liking property ever. Felt the same about Civ Pro but I can see it now that I understand how some people could like it (still hate it personally), but property? I'd love to know your secrets for anyone who enjoys it.

And a year long Property course? LolI'ddropout.

Good luck man. I have my closed book civpro one tomorrow, too. Given that I've had to teach myself everything about the course, not feeling too great about it. Oh well.
