Forthcoming Materials & Update

To my dear fellow Bar Examinees and Followers:

I wanted to provide a belated update on my last post. Last week I became quite sick and subsequently fell slightly behind in my personal study schedule, which is why the study aids (the charts and diagrams mentioned in my last post have yet to be uploaded. However, rest assured that I am rapidly catching up and fully intend on getting them to you in the near future! For the time being, please know that some of our other contributors are working on other charts and diagrams. I know one person is doing a criminal law chart that starts with Specific vs. General Intent and Strict liability and flows on from there, and another person is wading through the waters of hearsay and its exceptions. Please accept my apologies and stay tuned! Also, make sure to learn from my mistake and get enough sleep before you get sick! Happy Studying and do not forget to download our property charts if you have not already done so. If you are in stress/panic mode or significantly behind, it may be a good idea to look into our post on Critical Pass Flashcards and/or Studicata if you need to drill and memorize rules.

Requests?

Hi all, and happy weekend!

We wanted to take a moment to ask whether there are any particular areas of Property Law that you would like us to upload any charts, diagrams, or short outlines or explanations (per our understanding) for, and also inquire as to whether there are any requests or suggestions on what topics to do next and if there is anything specific you would like materials to focus on? The current plan is to do the MBE subjects first, but what order, what questions are out there, what formats or study aids do you like best? We would love to hear from you!

Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Future Interests in Grantor and Third Parties

Below is a diagram of Future Interests as currently understood. We are open to hearing what other people think, and will be sure to send out an alert should this diagram fall victim to revision when reviewing the topic. For now, enjoy and note that we turned the image into a link that will open a new tab in your browser so you can see it at a better size before deciding whether or not to save.

Estates Diagram

Please note that I am aware of how small the chart appears in post format and will be looking into ways to resolve this issue, whether it actually results in having the full sized chart show appropriately or inserting a sort of shared dropbox where the files can be downloaded from. In the mean time, right click, select “save image as,” and once you have saved the image open it. It should be the appropriate size and if not, simply zoom in. Apologies for any inconvenience!
