Ben...Its Goldband....meeting up with Zahn and Poorman tonight...lol.
To 1L's Anyway....Repuzel...Im assuming this is Sarah, and Ben are great resources for you guys. They are smart people who really mastered law school from the starting gate...its a pleasure going to law school with these people. In law school you will find people who were born to be lawyers...like it was some kind of calling...dont be threatened by these people...enjoy them. I enjoy Ben, he was born to be a lawyer...and his advice to you is good.
Im a nontraditional law student...was a CPA in NYC for 5 years before law school. Im also a dual degree student..JD/MS in tax...if anyone has any questions on the dual track let me know.
I agree with most of what my classmates have posted. I am having a great experience so far.
I would disagree with one post...the suggestion that you should use emaneuls study guides. I think they short cut a great deal and do not provide a comprehensive approach to helping you learn the law. I would suggest the following:
1. Contracts - Examples and Explanations by Blum 2. Torts - Flashcards, Prosser on Torts, Understanding Torts - Lexus. 3. Property - Use Gilberts - its keyed to the casebook or Lexus understanding property, is great. 4. Civ Pro/LPaP - Examples and Explanations - Glannon 5. Crim - Understanding Crim Law - Lexus.
Other then that study hard and dont be one of those over competitive people - it ruins the experience. Go to law school to learn the law and enjoy it, everthing else will work out fine...trust me.
Also listen to Benjamin...sup man...how summer...lol!
