FYI, Aspen is running a blog contest right now -- if you write about your best law professor (you don't have to use the person's name), you could win a free Kindle Fire with two study aids of your choice loaded onto it.

Current Law Students / Anyone going digital with their books?
« on: December 02, 2011, 11:37:46 AM »
So, I've been testing out the digital versions of casebooks by Aspen/Wolters Kluwer (, and they seem pretty great. You can do everything you can with books -- highlight, write notes in the margin, etc. Plus, you can click a tab and see all the highlighted notes and margin notes pulled out separately. And there's a function called "Brief Builder" where you just fill into a template the facts, holding, etc., and then you can export the brief to a text file or Word doc. And, of course, the best benefit of all -- you don't have to carry that 200-pound Con Law book with you everywhere.

So, I was just wondering: Are others using digital books?

For those of you thinking about exams, you might be interested in this book:

It's called Open Book, and it's a book for 1Ls written by a Harvard prof and NYU prof. They give lots of test-taking tips and tell you what professors want to see on exams.

Also, you can go to the book's website (, which has lots of free videos and excerpts of practice exams.
