Archer Memo

Posted in Uncategorized on September 22nd, 2010 by bl1y

If you’re a 1L at NYU School of Law, you should be having the Archer project coming up (unless they’ve changed the curriculum since I was there).  If you find yourself having trouble with the research, or struggling to put your memo together, you’re in luck!  I wrote the book on Archer.  Literally.

Well, kinda.

I worked as a research assistant and did a major rewrite of the “bench memo” (aka: teachers’ edition) and still have my copy.

I won’t just give you my copy of the memo.  After all, I may need to hire one of you some day, and I’d prefer to you learned the basics of legal research and writing.  But, I also know that many professors phone it in and don’t give much guidance, and that’s not going to result in a skilled lawyer either.

I’m not going to do the work for you, but if you need help, I don’t really have anything else better to do with my time.  Either post your questions in the comments, or send them to and I’ll do my best to make your first semester suck a little less.
