A law student entered into a contract with a lawyer to serve as an intern. By the terms of their agreement the law student was to intern at the lawyer’s office for one month and would receive $500 to do all of the assigned work during that month. The intern began working and he knew that he could probably finish all of the work assigned in about two weeks. However, the intern became lazy and started surfing the internet, tweeting his friends, going on Facebook, and calling out “sick” to spend time with his friends. He did not actually start on the work assigned to him until two weeks was left of his internship. By that time, the law student realized he had underestimated the time it would take him to finish all the assigned work. The student told the lawyer and accurately informed her that it was impossible to finish the work in the time left unless he could get one of his law school buddies to help out. He also stated that to do so would require an additional charge of $125 for the work so he could pay his buddy and keep all of the $500 for himself. The lawyer, stressed out with a trial coming up, told the law student that she apparently had no choice to pay “whatever it takes” to get the work done as scheduled. The law student brought his buddy along to help finish the work and paid him $125. The lawyer only wants to pay the law student
$500, but the law student is demanding $625.

Assume the same facts as the previous question except that the law student begins the required work right away.
Halfway through the internship, Lawyer asks law student if he could take on additional work above what was assigned for that month, but she still needed it completed in the same amount of time. Under normal circumstances, the amount of work given with the additions would take an average law student about six weeks and. However, law student knew he could complete it by the deadline if he worked nights and weekends. He asked lawyer for additional compensation of $150 for the extra work and she refused.

A second year law student (2L) and a first year law student (1L) agree that the 2L will sell to the 1L his first year course books only, and that 2L will not include additional law school supplements he has that are tailored to the course books. Three days before the scheduled exchange was to take place, 1L emails to the 2L, “I really am scared about my first year in law school; are you sure you won’t throw the supplements in?” The 2L emails back, “sure, no problem.” Later, the 2L changes his mind stating that another 1L has agreed to pay him $150 for all the supplements.
Is the 1L entitled to the additional supplements or does the original agreement stand?Grading can be reviewed and adjusted.Grading can be reviewed and adjusted.
