A Primer on Gun Law

Since last weekend’s horrible shooting in Orlando, gun law has been in the news. Senator Christopher Murphy of Connecticut even led a 15-hour filibuster to seek new gun control measures. So we figured this would be a good time to look at gun law in our ongoing series on different areas of the law.

Is withdrawal right for you?

Your Final Weeks of Study, Logic Games Edition

A couple days ago, we covered how to work on Reading Comprehension as you shift from learning the basics to reviewing and working on timing. Yesterday, we took a look at Logical Reasoning. So, you guessed it, today’s all about those games.

There’s everything from contract law, which applies to, well, contracts, to the health and safety issues that pertain to live performances. But in today’s world, there are a lot of interesting issues relating to music and intellectual property law, and to royalty payments in particular.
