]Hi Everyone:

I have a ridiculous amount of study guides, treatises, casebooks and commercial outlines to sell, some of them have not even been cracked open (because I panicked and bought like 3 for each class).
The classes I have these are for Civil Procedure, Torts, Contracts, Property, Constitutional Law, and Criminal Law.

If you are going to start law school in the fall and want gently used, or NEW study guides PM or e-mail me at kitlee224@yahoo.com and I will give you a list of what I have.

Mostly Emmanuel's, the LexisNexis "Understanding" series, Gilberts, Examples & Explanations, and Casenotes.  For those of you who are unfamiliar, these are the most common study guides. 

Don't wait till November to buy them!  Buy them early and use them in conjunction with your casebook when you have TIME to read them and process the information!!!

Thanks. 

So here is a complete list of what I have, how much they are, and how much they retail for.  I'd be sending paypal invoices and shipping USPS media mail, and if you choose to you can mail me money orders or personal checks.  Of course, the checks have to clear first in order for me to ship.  Shipping for one book is $3 and if you order more than 1 the cost depends on how many more books you buy since shipping costs depend on weight.

CASEBOOKS
Civil Procedure, Freer and Perdue 4th ed. ($15, retail $110) used, minimal highlighting but binding is loose.

Property, 6th ed. 2006 Dukeminier/Krier/Alexander/Schill ($18, retail $145) used. Extensively highlighted and binding is loose.
Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, 2007, Clermont ($8, retail $39) new. Will throw in used 2008 FRCP handbook by LexisNexis.

Hey if any of you guys want to get a jump on getting study guides for cheap I have a BUNCH of gently used ones and some that haven't even been cracked open. (I panicked and bought like 3 for each class).

I'm a rising 2L at Emory so let me know if you want to buy casebooks as well.  :) Just PM me or e-mail me at kitlee224@yahoo.com for a list of what I have.

I know you guys will be taking Torts, Contracts, Civ Pro, and Legal Methods so let me know if you want any corresponding study guides! (emmanuels, examples & explanations, gilberts, etc.).

Emory / Re: Does Anyone Read This Board?
« on: April 03, 2007, 09:13:45 PM »
 :( i was hoping to find a lively discussion here but it looks like no one has much to say....

what are everyone's thoughts on emory vs. fordham? i'm a ny'er and intend to practice in ny but would love to attend emory if not for the dire warnings everyone is giving me about how hard it will be to find a job in ny and how hard it will be to compete with the ny law school grads..

Well it looks like we can at least buy the Civil Procedure book by Freer & Perdue since all the sections require that book, as well as Elements of Law for our Legal Methods class and the required book for the LWRAP class.

"Part of qualifying for a grant includes participation in a set number of volunteer hours."

So we don't need to fulfill these volunteer hours if we're not trying to get this grant for non-profit/govt. summer jobs right?

 :-\

so to ask the question again, would not sending a loci be a kiss of death to the adcom?

would fedex-ing one now do anything at all?

initally i thought it would be hopeless to wait on them especially since my numbers are on the low side but i've suddenly been hit with hope and longing.

From NY  :)

glad to see there are a couple of other people who felt it was safe to leave NY... and everyone i met at ASD, long time no see! had to stop obsessing for a while and take care of other life things.

question for captain longshot: i applied for 1 bedroom at clairmont throught their online registration form. how soon would i hear back from them and is it reasonble to expect to get a 1 bedroom this late? i received an email confirmation of my application but haven't heard anything for two weeks....
