Current Law Students / Re: Why buy casebooks?

Hornbook is basically a more traditional "textbook" on the topic of interest where the authors are seemingly paid by the word.  Include an overabundance of information, much of which is repeated several times under different headings.

jdohno,

Congrats on your performance during 1L.  What are you doing this summer?  Are you not concerned that without some legal experience this summer you'll be at a big disadvantage during fall recruit even after transferring up?

"E&E" is short for "examples and explanations"  a series of books published by Aspen Publishing.  They vary in their quality, as different authors are in charge of the different books.  Glannon was the original author and I believe the Torts book was the original one.  The Torts and Civ. Pro. are superior to the Property book.  Have no experience with the Contracts one.

You asked me where you could find BOOKS, what the hell kind of response did you expect?  These aren't magical items, just like any other book, you can most likely find them cheapest on half.com if you have a little patience and, seeing as how libraries are sort of in the business of loaning out books, depending on the strength of your local library, they very well may have any or all of these books. 



Thanks for your generous help! ::)

I've never seen anyone recommend "The Common Law."  Can I get that at the library?

Also, where can I get Glannon's Civ Pro book at a good deal?

Thanks!

I think the best thing to read for prep is "The Common Law" by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.  A series of lectures he gave in the late 1800s on the development and policy issues surrounding common law (which would include Torts, Contracts and Property). 

Throw Glannon's Civ. Pro. E&E on top of that and you should be good to go.

In the two weeks since you started this thread I'm sure you could have found plenty of copies of the all of the E&Es on half.com for cheap.  No idea if The Common Law is available at your library, but they are but a phone call away...
