We would like to address your concerns without the need for a formal legal matter. Before filing a claim against Medium, you agree to contact us and attempt to resolve the claim informally by sending written notice of your claim by email to email@example.com or by registered mail to A Medium Corporation, P.O. Box 602, San Francisco, CA 94104. The notice must include (a) your name, home address, email address and telephone number; (b) a description of the nature and basis of the request; and (c) set out the specific relief sought. Our notice will be sent to you at the email address associated with your online account and will contain the information described above. If we are unable to resolve the issue within thirty (30) days of notice, either party may initiate formal proceedings. While an information session is an extremely useful and important learning aid, annotations and highlights are other tools for breaking down the mass of material in your case book. Later in this section, these different techniques will be discussed and shown how they complement and improve the information process. (h) If any part of this section is held to be unenforceable or illegal for any reason, (1) the unenforceable or illegal provision shall be severed from these Terms; (2) The severance of the unenforceable or illegal provision shall not affect the remainder of this Section or the ability of the parties to compel arbitration for any remaining claim on an individual basis under this Section; and (3) Accordingly, to the extent claims are to be litigated on a class, aggregated, consolidated, or representative basis, such claims shall be heard in a court of competent jurisdiction and not by arbitration, and the parties agree that the dispute relating to such claims shall be suspended pending the outcome of the individual claims in arbitration. If any part of this Section is found to prohibit an individual action for public injunctive relief, that provision shall have no effect to the extent such relief may be sought outside of arbitration, and the remainder of this Section shall be enforceable. Personal comments can be helpful if you have a thought that doesn`t fit elsewhere. In the personal experience of one of the authors, this element was used to refer to cases of certain types (e.g. vicarious liability) or to take mental notes about what he found strange or confusing in the cases.
This element allowed him to let go of his thoughts (without losing them) so that he could move on to other cases. (b) Dispute Resolution. Except for small claims disputes in which you or Medium attempt to bring an individual action in small claims court in your country of residence, or in disputes in which you or Medium seek injunctive or other equitable relief for alleged intellectual property infringement or misappropriation, You and Medium waive your rights to a jury trial and any other dispute arising out of or related to these Terms or our Services, including claims related to privacy and data security (collectively, “Disputes”) resolved in court. Any dispute submitted to JAMS will be resolved by confidential and binding arbitration before an arbitrator. The arbitration will take place in San Francisco, California, unless you are a consumer, in which case you may administer the arbitration in your county of residence. For purposes of this section, a “Consumer” means a person who uses the Services for personal, family or household purposes. You and Medium agree that disputes will be resolved in accordance with JAMS` streamlined arbitration rules and procedures (“JAMS Rules”). The most current version of the JAMS Rules is available on the JAMS website and is incorporated by reference into these Terms. You either acknowledge and agree that you have read and understood the JAMS Rules, or you waive the ability to read the JAMS Rules and waive any claim that the JAMS Rules are unfair or should not apply for any reason.
(a) Facts (name of the case and its parties, factual and procedural records and judgement) Highlighting is a personal tool and should therefore be used to the extent that highlighting is useful, but should be modified in such a way as to be personally effective and beneficial. For example, you can combine the use of margin annotations with the visual benefit of highlighting relevant text. You may prefer to underline relevant text with a pencil, but use a highlighter to put the different sections of a case in parentheses. Whatever you do, make sure it works for you, no matter what others recommend. The techniques described in the rest of this section describe how to get the most out of your highlighters. If annotations and highlights are so effective, why run? Because the process of summarizing a case and summarizing it in your own words in a briefing gives an understanding of the law and the case that you can`t gain from the process of highlighting or annotating. If you agree to these Terms and use the Services on behalf of another person (e.g., another person or entity), you represent that you have the right to do so, and in that case, the words “you” or “your” in these Terms include that other person or entity. (a) No Representative Actions. You and Medium agree that any dispute arising out of or relating to these Terms or our Services is personal to you and Medium and that all disputes will be resolved solely by individual action and will not be filed as class arbitration, class action or other type of representational proceeding. In the previous section, the parts of a case have been described to make it easier to read and identify the relevant information you will use to create your memories. This section describes the parts of a briefing to give you an idea of what a briefing is, what is useful to include in a briefing, and what it is for.
Case descriptions are a necessary study tool for law school that helps capture and analyze the mountainous mass of material that law students must digest. The case description represents a final product after a case has been read, proofread, disassembled, and reassembled. In addition to its function as a self-learning and SEO tool, the case description also provides a valuable “cheat sheet” for attending classes. When you first read a case, read for history and for a basic understanding of the dispute, problems, reasoning, and decision. When you hit these elements (or what you think these elements are), create a marker at the edges. Your markers can be as simple as “facts” (with a parenththesis indicating the relevant part of the paragraph). If you discover a problem, you can simply mark “problem” or provide a summary in your own words instead. When a case triggers an idea – write that idea in the margins as well – you never know when a seemingly irrelevant idea might turn into something more. Now that you know the basics of an information session, what information is important to include them in each element? The answer is simple: everything relevant.
