Fresh air through the windows, a soft breeze. Things are better now.
No CivPro homework done, but other than that....
Oddly enough, my lack of outlining skills for Civ Pro open book helped my butt out. There's not a lot of room for opinion in Civ Pro - either it is or it ain't, and I found that I never needed more than a general understanding of the rules so's I could look up the right rule. The Line of cases for Personal Juristiction and Erie are really key, but the rules - I just had a list of a short description of the Rule. Now, I'm not as good a student as you are, so I'd take that with a grain of salt. Still, if you know Erie, International Shoe World-Wide Volkswagen, and what each rule stands for, there's not that much to fear. Not that Erie's all that easy to get.

Re: Civ Pro
Well, I have decided that waiting for today and her review session will not hurt me. Generally the instructor review sessions are really good for creating the frame upon which the outline should be hung. At least that's what I'm telling myself. [g]
Personal jurisdiction and venue issues are covered in the second term here, so I know nothing of these cases of which you speak. First term is designed to be step-by=step through a case, which makes really good sense, except the textbook isn't arranged that way at all and therefore she jumped all over in it, making outlining feel pretty chaotic.
I needed the day off, though. Tonight's our last class. I will be ready to hit the books hard tomorrow, getting ready for this.
