Watch Me Take The Bar
Watch Me Take The Bar
This blog, originally started as a chronicle of my taking the bar, is now a look into the mind of an attorney in solo practice in Port Clinton, Ohio.

Now, I've long since given up hoping this process would make sense.


I just realized that CMR has 16 pages on partnership and 45 pages on CivPro.

That's like, almost three times as much on CivPro.

And here's the thing. CivPro doesn't freaking count any more than partnership.

My point is, partnership, you know, that's graspable and get-a-handle-onable. I mean, you basically need to know when you're going to be bound by acts of other partners, that if you're a limited partner you're almost certainly not going to get sued unless you do something awful like participating in the management of the company or letting your name be used in the partnership name unless your name is also the name of the general partner or your name was in there before you became a limited partner.

And if you're in a partnership, one partner can convey title to property that is held by the partnership, but if he doesn't have actual or apparent authority to do so, the property can be reclaimed by the partnership from the grantee, unless of course there's been a subsequent conveyance to a bona fide purchaser.

Oops, I'm sorry, this is supposed to be an English-only blog.

What I'm saying is, Partnership is pretty manageable, while CivPro is incredibly...not. I mean, you've got jurisdiction (subject matter/personal/in rem), venue, service of process, et cetera. Not to mention the rules for how you depose, get medical exams, et cetera. And res judicata. Et cetera.

And they all count for as much on the bar.

I'm just saying.
