My torts prof, "you're probably not looking at a res ipsa issue, you're definitely not looking at that issue in all three essays."

WTF is that? The thing from like 10th grade?


Yeah. It's the whole National Merit Scholar test.

Did the Internet exist when I was a national merit scholar? All I used back then was IRC and a debate message board.

Did not cover this in my torts class.


We did a lot of Pareto Optimalities and Calder-Hicks analyses. Covered Coase Theorem too. But I don't recall Bayes.

We did a lot with Coase, that was one of the Prof.'s favorites

Probably not going to look at anything torts related for a week at this point though

that's rough. but then, every fall 1L exam slate probably is.

Property on Monday, Ks on Thursday;
Civ Pro on Monday, Crim on Thursday

Less than three weeks away -- absolutely insane!

I feel for y'all taking 4 exams. Godspeed.

If I'm not mistaken, I think it's CivPro W, Conlaw Sat (at 8AM...), Torts W?

We have 4 exams plus LRW too (though that's wrapped up for pretty much everyone by now), and our spring semester is only "chill" in that we can pick two of our own classes. But it's still four classes + LRW part two.

We're CivPro Mon, Torts Thur, Crim Mon, Ks Thur

Actually no. I have a J term, 2 hours. Mini lrw/ethics/drunk fest for 3 weeks. Then 7 classes, one will be pass/fail, for spring.


Lrw 2, 2 hrs
Contracts 2, 3 hrs
CivPro 2, 3 hrs
Property 2, 3 hrs
Publaw 3 hrs
Competitiveness and corruption (llm class replacing crimlaw) 3 hrs
Some 1 hour pass/fail methods class

If you are not looking to get rich, direct services (e.g. legal aid) as well as being a public defender will have you on your feet talking to people most of the time

realistically I think the research and writing stuff will become second nature with time. It's a pain in the ass now because we have no idea what we're doing.
