deadlines for assignments is 11:30 pm on given date. do not wait to login at 11:29 pm to post your work, as it possibly will not work. give yourself enough time to post your work.

 

here is how to cut, copy and paste

 

http://www.webmasternow.com/copyandpaste.html

 

it is recommended that you open up your word processor, and save your work in document file, and then "copy and paste" over to the etudes box for posting your work. (the reason is that you can spend a lot of time working in an etudes box and your work is lost and not saved after you have spent a lot of time preparing your work - so instead save your work in a word processor, and then cut,copy and paste it over to etudes box. this is a very common mistake we have all made in working in etudes.

 

to get a simple word processor, in windows, click on start, lower left corner, then program, accessories and word pad, and then use that for your word processor.

 

most of the assignments give an actual court case. you must read, understand these cases, and use the court rules and court findings (i.e which party won, and why). start your postings NOT with "It is my opinion" - start with "the party who won the case was, and because - cite the court rules. read "Reading like a Lawyer" - by Prof. Ruth Mckinney - Univ. North Carolina Law School - http://profj.us/reading

 

best of luck everyone. welcome aboard. prof. J.
