I'm with you 100% on study groups. Some of the smartest people I go to school with are study groupers, but it just doesn't work for me

I don't like study groups either. Occasionally I'll jump in a friends and sit and discuss but I think I get so much more out of figuring stuff out on my own.

I also don't think people are gaming the system at our school; maybe I'm just willfully blind though.

I never thought I'd do the whole study group thing but it was by far the most helpful studying I did last semester. I highly recommend at least getting together to do practice tests.

Sweet, found out my issue assignment for our appeals brief and oral augments are in line with my actual beliefs on the issue. Basically, I get to argue Brennan's SOC dissent in a fictitious appeal to SCOTUS.

it's my experience that study groups add about 2 ounces of confusion for every 3 ounces of clarity, and I'd imagine that would be worse in a situation like this where people are stressed


No, purely flippant law school gossip. Only reason I brought it up here was because I thought it was kind of odd for those people to be concerned about it because of the reasons already mentioned. I think the main reason for the concern was that it's unusual that the exam is less than two hours yet is allowing a two day window to take the exam whenever.

Torts. Levmore had this crazy student example where they said obviously the airline shouldn't diminish someone's damages if it was highly likely they would die because they wouldn't have to increase the damages if it were highly likely they'd find a treasure chest with a billion dollars in it


Yeah, that treasure chest. The best part was telling us that there were 3 or 4 people who independently came up with that example.

Far more important than our torts exam tomorrow, though: there is a lasagna in my oven.

To be fair, there was a bit more going on there than straight up assumption of risk; the particular situation was that an airline crashed, and was likely liable to its' passengers -- but ONE of the passengers, had she reached her destination, would have been joining a mountain climbing expedition which was killed basically the day after she would have safely arrived, in an avalanche. The airline was arguing that they didn't owe that particular individual full recovery, because she would have died anyways the very next day -- so they were really only liable for one day's worth or her life, or so.

The treasure chest argument goes that, if hypothetically instead of an avalanche killing everyone, the group had found a treasure chest full of money instead, could this girl or her estate sue the airline for loss of what would have been that girl's future share of the treasure chest which she missed out on? The argument is intended to show that no recovery is the predictable, parallel argument: because we wouldn't allow an individual to sue the airline for missed good fortune, we shouldn't allow the airline to benefit from missed bad fortune (or something very close to that).

Eesh. Torts at Chicago really IS a gem.

Agreed; Levmore gave us a killer toolkit moving forward, I think.

There are 2 people in my class who, when they start speaking, I pull up TLS. These gunners are exceptionally worked up today.
