    Kirby bows out but rejects "Great Dissenter" tag.

    and in doing so he represented the minority judgment in a huge amount of cases - thus the dissent. The number of Constitutional and Admin law cases that have been decided 4:1 and 6:1 with Kirby dissenting.. Shame to see him go.

    New Law Building?

    I doubt it - the Sydney Law School is a lot more segregated from the rest Usyd than a usual 'faculty' e.g. education, economics. Also, the new building is a relocation of the Philip St campus which was only for law classes.

    Introductory Mathematical Finance

    Question 7

    I think many of you are confused and are thinking along the lines of: "If the natural rate includes only structural and frictional, how can unemployment fall below this?" This comes from a basic misunderstanding, which arises when the textbook says that: "the NAIRU is when cyclical = 0, and...

    Question 7

    Confusion Over Multiple Choice Question

    hey michael1990, observing how stubborn you are about this question, and the way you approach your argument, i can only gather that you are trying to scab 1 more mark for your assessment that youve just had. I recommend you put your energy into more productive things for your hsc.

    1. PEople will try and make you drink. It is up to you to say no - but yes there is a lot of culture / activities revolved around drinking. Having said that people are not going to be like "she doesn't drink lets not be her friend" - it has a lot more to do with your personality. If you can get...
