Yalie huh? He's fantastic, except for remedies, he kind of screwed up remedies, hopefully he'll rectify that with you guys.


Cool. I appreciate all the comments.

Which casebook did he use? For some reason it isn't showing up at my school's bookstore.

Rents are visiting town. Anyone know where they could park their car for cheap or free? Somewhere outside of city limits is okay as long as I can go meet them via public transportation. They're trying to stay in town at my place for about a week but also happen to be bringing a car.

Thanks in advance :)

Did you find a place to park yet? PM me if desperate I know for sure that there's free parking on the street in west town/uk village but there might be no permit street parking closer.

Does someone have a list of classes/profs where attendance doesn't matter?

From my experience so far, I think it would be more efficient to make a list of classes where attendance does matter.

Really? It never matters if you know the law and apply it the best kiddo. If not, it always matters, so I'm guessing for anyone asking, it matters.

"Hi my name is Snape and I am the only person I know who can IRAC so I don't need to go to class to get an A. You people who aren't special snowflakes like me are incapable of basic legal analysis so you all should go to every class and brief your cases, you dumb peasants. Also, this post doesn't add anything to the discussion at all but I'm sure it'll be okay. Yeah, I rock."

Doesn't care: Barsa, Burns, Lindgren, Presser

But, you should be careful because you really can't skip class in tiny classes. Most nearly 60 person courses it doesn't matter unless they take attendence.

I like it. Not too many people here and everyone pretty much stays in their own offices, so I will have to get creative.

Better to take Admin this term with Fischman, who apparently (according to the CTEs) curves even when below 40, or wait until Spring and take it with Speta, whose teaching style I enjoy, but whose class fills up?
