Nashville School of Law / Briefs: which ones

Q: Neophyte aXes: how many of these ContraKs cases should we brief? 
I understand that the best approach might be to brief ALL the contracts cases, but I'm only going 1/2 time, and am already spending >= 14 hours per week on my studies.  I am probably making it too hard, but I don't see the value in cheating by just memorizing or copying an outline.

>"I get the whole "if you brief your own cases you'll learn it better", but assume for a second learning it isn't the issue, outline content is, am I getting enough content in?"

If learning isn't the issues, why go to school?

I'm an admitted neophyte, but I daresay that if all you do is copy from an outline, you're cheating yourself.  Worse, if you actually receive a J.D., you might, along the way, have set yourself up to cheat your clients by offering advice on which you have not earned the right to speak.  Again, I'm a neophyte, but copying outlines is not the same as actually studying the cases, doing a lot of thinking, and understanding the reasoning behind the court's holdings.
