What You Need To Know To Prepare For The Bar Exam

In addition, bar exams are typically scheduled to be given twice a year in February and July.

Looking Ahead: Dadonov in a Better Situation

The Immediate Fix (Grab this guy and use him for the next several days) Evgenii Dadonov, RW/LW, Vegas Golden Knights (Available in 37.5% of ESPN leagues, 40% Fantrax leagues) – So let's start with Florida Evgenii. He was once a 20-goal scorer in this league and a sneaky cheap DFS player from time to time in the right situation. Dadonov might not have had the most stellar campaign during the shortened season in Ottawa last year, but this is a player I've always liked that was put in tough spots, often in a shutdown role, playing bottom six minutes for a bottom-of-the-standings Sens club.

What should have been a great moment for the league, with the newest expansion team playing its very first regular season game, turned into a debate over what constitutes a kicking motion. With the Vegas Golden Knights and Seattle Kraken tied at three each in the third period Tuesday night, the game winning goal was scored off the skate of Chandler Stephenson of Vegas. He clearly angled his skate to put the puck on the net, which he is absolutely allowed to do. However, the debate remains over whether he made a distinct kicking motion. Former NHL coach and Stanley Cup winner John Tortorella has weighed in.

Cannon Blasts: Previewing the 2021-22 season

Well, folks, we’ve finally made it. The 2021-22 NHL season finally begins this week. Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming Columbus Blue Jackets campaign:. After a mutual parting of ways with John Tortorella after six seasons as head coach, the Blue Jackets conducted an exhaustive search for his successor ... only to end up staying in-house and promoting longtime assistant Brad Larsen. Given that the Torts era produced four straight playoff appearances, it’s not surprising that the team valued continuity. The hope is that Larsen can continue the best practices of those teams, but perhaps show a lighter touch than the confrontational Torts, and be more open to innovation.

Suicide Torts: Recent Bizarre Cases Raise Questions Over “Jumper” Liability

A couple of bizarre recent cases raise a question that we occasionally discuss in my torts class: the liability for suicidal acts, particularly jumping from buildings.
