Bar Blogging

All Michael's Been Reading For Months Now

Not that kind of bar. I'm sitting at a desk drumming all nature of legal rules and pnemonic devices into my head. Here are some of my favorite:

MAD FIFI (Commercial Paper -- Real Defenses to a Holder In Due Course): Material Alteration, Duress, Fraud In the Factum, Infancy, Insolvency, Illegality and Incapacity.

MIMIC (Evidence -- Permissible Uses of Character Evidence): Motive, Intent, Mistake (absence of), Identity, Common Plan or Scheme.

WOSSUP (Commercial Paper -- List of Required Elements That Make A Negotiable Instrument): Writing, Order or Bearer, Signed by Maker or Drawer, Sum Certain, Unconditional Promise or Order, Payable on Demand, Payable in Currency.

This sucks.

Those are terrible mindfucks, designed to make you forget everything you know about reason and its relationship to the law. Please don't rely on them...

Too late?

Well, yes and no. The exam is over, but the pnemonic devices went right out the window when it came to crunch time. I was so anxious that it never occurred to me to start thinking about them.
