Does anyone have tips for organizing exams? Particularly in torts and K's (and prop to a lesser extent). I feel like I am struggling to organize and it just becomes me spouting whatever shit I think is kind of relevant. Having the biggest problem with negligence claims in torts, especially when there is more than one actor and a superceding cause is involved. As an example, the last one I took basically had a company not disposing of a dangerous chemical properly, then the person who was supposed to dispose of it keeping it (hurting himself and his life partner) and selling it and hurting other people.
What is the best way to organize something like that?
My advice: depending on the proffesor you can do exceptionally well by spewing shit out. like literally a total dump of thoughts and analysis. if the prof uses a checklist and doesnt deduct any points for wrong info, then just fucking dump all over that exam. that is, if you think that you will be able to hit more issues that way. I basically wrote 7,000 words for a few of my exams, repeated myself many times, never really looked back at what i was writing, and just went balls to the wall making sure i hit eveyr issue. if i though i didnt hit an issue yet, i didnt look back , i just wrote it again. if i thought of an issue i didnt think is this good enough, i just wrote it. this method togetehr with fast typing speed allowed me to hit the large majority of issues in many classes. You should though seperate your paragraphs and issues and try and use headers. But make sure your prof is ok with this method, most are. (a million typos on this comment, just like how my exam looked, but too lazy to fix)
