I'm debating whether to unload my Gilberts/Emanual's and E&E's. Will I wish I had them to refer to when I review these first year topics for the bar? Has anyone here used them to clarify some forgotten BLL when doing bar prep? (I'll be taking the CA bar in a few years).

Re the E&E's: are they just too elementary or compartmentalized to ever go back to once you've made it through the course?

TIA

Book Sales and Trades / Sum & Substance Property Audio CDs
« on: July 21, 2007, 09:21:30 PM »
I accidentally bought the Sum & Substance Property CDs twice, so I've listed it for $25 on Ebay: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=011&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&viewitem=&item=320139997525&rd=1&rd=1

I've been listening to the S&S CDs while commuting to and from work - Property has been especially helpful compared to the others - while Torts and Contracts are familiar subjects from every day life, the terms and history of property law are like a foreign language and not intuitive at all. I'm glad I'm familiarizing myself with the bizarre terms and history before school - and I think it will help in my substantive prep work as well. Just my 2 cents!

General Board / Re: Working During 2L Year
« on: June 17, 2007, 03:16:52 AM »
I worked with someone who was a 3L at a T3/4 in Houston - he worked ~20-25 hrs a week with us.

Of course, you could barely call what he did "work" - he was either studying or, more often, playing computer games. And this was on a major political campaign. No wonder we lost.

Thanks for the feedback. At the risk of beating a subject to death (I know it's been discussed a lot on LSD): how to compare Emanuels and Gilberts outlines? I see good things written about both - based on all I'm seeing they both look good.

Are the outlines something that could be skimmed to some degree before classes? Or is that also "wasting" the material?.

Thanks

I'm a 0L and have Dobbs' "Torts & Compensation" assigned for fall. It has horrible reviews on Amazon (well, it is a casebook, right?) and I'm wondering what study aids might be useful for that book, esp. keyed to the book.

I saw Dobbs' "Law of Torts" treatise recommended, but I've also seen posts saying that treatises have almost too much information to be used as a clear and concise supplement.

Also, I'll be an evening student w/full time job -> no time after mid-Aug. I'd like to take advantage of my summer (and current 3 hr commute on the train to work) to read overviews of Torts, Contracts and Property so I have a view of the forest going in. Any recommendations?

(On recommendations, I plan to buy E & Es when I'm actually working through the material. I don't want to waste them on my ignorant self this summer).

Thank you VERY MUCH for any help you can give!

General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: Lenovo vs. thoseotherguys

Yay! I got my X60s - it's so light and small!! I love it though - just have to get used to the backspace key which is half the size of a normal one - I keep hitting the = button. But it's soooooooo nice to have a laptop that's small and light enough to fit in my purse.

Hope you all enjoy yours!

Well I posted that my X60s was shipped yesterday (I was notified via email BTW). Went to track it this morning and it's aleaft gone from China to Ontario CA and back to China! So I now have a shipping delay outside of UPS' control but not updated on my order status page. Great... I wonder how many times it will cross the ocean before I get it. I mean I could have driven to Ontario and picked it up yesterday! Grr.

Well, maybe there's hope yet for Lenovo. My X60s (ordered 5/30, supposed to ship 6/13, delayed until 6/27) just shipped. Maybe now they'll charge my card and get the ball rolling on my $113 fatwallet rebate.

Acceptances / Re: LOYOLA
« on: June 18, 2007, 01:31:37 AM »
I know, Loyola has been pretty stingy on getting us STUFF - and believe me, I've bugged. I've asked when we're getting our e-mail addresses so we can log into "current student" stuff (A: not until orientation); when we'll know about our schedule ("forthcoming" - if you check the Loyola registrar website under Current students, that's what it says), when will the carpool-finder site be up (A: no response to my e-mail yet...)It's frustrating that other schools have lots of info coming their way while we're all twiddling our thumbs, but Loyola also moved at a snail's pace during the admissions process (from my experience)...

Pink: I came to the LA area for college, then moved away for 5 years, then just moved back last summer. SOOOOO glad to be back in southern California. Are you in CA right now?

Discoverer: Best of luck for your waitlist school - but if you end up at Loyola we'll see each other at the pre-classes, LLS-LSDers get together - or whatever we're having, right?  :D
