Nashville School of Law / NSL is a success?

Planet Law School is extremely negative and presents a story of deception on the part of law schools and law professors.    A large part of the book is devoted to telling you why you should be reading the book.

Some people swear by it.  I found it useless for me, but I do not go to a typical law school.

The main benefit people seem to get is the list of 'primers' in the law.  PLS suggests that law school will not teach you the law and you should learn the black letter law by reading a series of suggested books over a three month period.

There are a number of longer discussions of PLS on the pre-law side of this site.

anyone here read planet law school? Suggestions, comments?

I read a couple of books about law school, but no serious reading needed.  Try Law School Confidential and the like.

He already explained cats to us.  There are no torts against cats.


A priest, a penquin and a rabbi walk into a bar.  The priest asks the others what they want to drink.

The penguin asks for a beer and the rabbi some wine.

Joe the part-time bartender and graduate zooolgy student serves them the drinks.

The continue to drink for several hours.  The penguin is totally plastered.  The priest is totally penitent.  The rabbi is reading the Torah.

They decide to leave and the penguin drives them away in the rabbi's car.

They hit a Baptist church and break a window.

What torts?

Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet,
eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider and sat down besider her
and frightened miss muffet away.

What tort did the spider commit?

It all depends on the school, the prof and so on.

You'll end up rereading it anyway.

Keep in mind what works well will vary by person. 


You seriously don't think reading through one of the courses before class starts would get a good jump on things?

Are the tests based more on the book or the in-class notes?

After a few months of law school, I am convinced PLS missed the mark, at least for my school.
