Here's a Softball

by Armen

I have an honest question for current and former law students. Do you prefer short fact patterns that test your general knowledge of a topic or long detailed ones with focused issues? The reason I ask is because I had a final that was the equivalent of asking, "A made an offer, B accepted but didn't perform. Discuss contract ramifications." I mean I seriously had to write a freakin' treatise on the topic.

Black letter law does not mean that there are no shades of application. I trust your "treatise" response explored the rainbow of possibilities.

Depends on whether I could bring in an outline. If I can have my paper security blanket with me, I prefer focused issue exams; if I have to rely purely on memory, I want to be able to BS the treatise.
