I've been working in law for nearly a decade and I still don't really know what a "tort" is.



No, I don't want to know, so don't tell me.

A tort is a little fruit pie, kind of like a Danish.

Which is odd, because I didn't realize you worked in international law.

Does this mean that You won't have your webcams on? I mean, I could totally get into torts if you were making them. You are talking about Fruit Torts aren't you?

My step mother went to Notre Dame Law School about 20 years ago. She always considered herself a very fast reader, yet she was continually swamped with school work (they do that to you on purpose).

Between her first and second year, she found a class called something like "speed reading for law school" She credits that class with basically saving her skin. It was a technique that combined speed reading and note taking. Rather than reading everything word for word, she was extracting facts, themes and results and jotting them down.

By using this method, she spent less time on reading and her grades went up.

If there's something like that at your school, I recommend it.

That's because tort is simply a lawyer's secretary's shorthand for torture as you must know by now.

I am quickly learning (not on the same scale as btown, though).

Case after case after case after case.......stupidity followed by more stupidity followed by more stupidity, etc.

No, I didn't go home for Thanksgiving. I decided to stay here in the library and read torts!

Mmmmmm - I might just have to go all out for my dinner to make up for this. Kraft dinner...WITH the sliced hot dog wiener? I think so.

A few days ago Geezer Jr. shadowed a lawyer friend of ours and really liked what he saw. At one point the friend had to talk with a couple about a Will so he couldn't tag along. Our friend gave Jr a 40 page deposition to read. By the time they were done Jr. had read about half of the document. He asked if he could come back to finish reading it sometime and so, yesterday (Saturday) he did just that. He said it wasn't much of a case but it wsavery interesting seeing how they build questions and what they are getting to.


I may have to shoot him.

Oh, if he was handed something that actually made sense, don't let him get the impression that he'll be doing anything like that if he goes to law school.

If you do that, you'll need a lawyer. ;)



Depositions are perhaps the single most boring experience on planet earth. A buddy of mine had a job where he videotaped depositions.

Here's how miserable he was: after two years he quit his job and took another job that paid exactly HALF what he was making before. His old company offered him a 25% raise and two more weeks of vacation and he still quit.

Kids, don't do depos.
