scrivener's error

Read a random definition: tax-benefit rule

A quick definition of scrivener's error:

Scrivener's error is a mistake made by someone who is writing or copying something down, like a typo or a misspelling. It is a type of clerical error, which means it is not a mistake made by a judge or based on legal reasoning. Scrivener's errors can be corrected at any time, even after a judgment has been made.

A more thorough explanation:

Scrivener's error is a type of clerical error that occurs when a minor mistake or inadvertence is made in writing or copying something on the record. It is not a mistake resulting from judicial reasoning or determination.

For example, if a court document accidentally misspells a name or incorrectly transcribes a number, it would be considered a scrivener's error. These errors can be corrected at any time, even after a judgment has been entered.

Another example of a scrivener's error is when a party buys a horse believing it to be the one that they had already examined and ridden, when in fact it is a different horse. This mistake involving the identity of a particular object is called an error in corpore.

Overall, scrivener's errors are minor mistakes that can be corrected without affecting the substantive rights or outcome of a case.

yeah i think so its kinda hard to tell sometimes just because i like, dont have a lot of people in my life who went to law school/practice law and those who did are like "went to NYU" or "was a lawyer in the ~old country~ and goes to a local school just because they need a US JD" and like both of those are people who provide valuable lessons it's just also hard to tell what actually aligns with my goals

this is a dumb question but does going to a school for undergrad heighten your chances of law school ?
23:34
@Error0305: Might be a slight boost (the law school will be very familiar with transcripts from the college, and probably a *little* kinder to them than other schools) but you'll also be one of a *lot* of applicants so it can cut both ways.
23:37
makes sense lol, I (un)fortunately went to the Ivy with the least grade inflation so that sounds like a perk somewhat
23:37
Most law schools have a healthy # of (University) undergrads because they get a lot of applicants from same
23:38
@Error0305: Yeah Cornell Law is the #1 destination for Cornell undergrads
