Anybody? Also this is section 1 for those who care.
LOL. Good fucking luck with this section.
Singer makes you memorize everything. Don't skip the footnotes. Seriously.
And Cohen is a nice, if demanding and very odd, fellow.
Great. Anybody wanna strongly dispute this so I can sleep at night? Gelpern is visiting from DC American now Georgetown.
Dunno what he's saying about Singer. There are three things you need to know for Singer, and the exam has one question utilizing each (although of course you draw on the three things for all the questions as well).
1. Different types of arguments for either side of a legal question based on:
a. Statutory interpretation
c. Public policy
2. Classic issue spotter, but make sure that you are comfortable making arguments for both sides. You will be, because you will spend most of the semester on this.
3. Takings doctrine (application of the Penn Central test)
I have also found that Singer's class was one of those that is applicable in other areas, including LRW and PSW.
