General Board / Re: Why buy casebooks?

Hornbook is basically a more traditional "textbook" on the topic of interest where the authors are seemingly paid by the word.  Include an overabundance of information, much of which is repeated several times under different headings.

jdohno,

Congrats on your performance during 1L.  What are you doing this summer?  Are you not concerned that without some legal experience this summer you'll be at a big disadvantage during fall recruit even after transferring up?

Here's the schedule from last year. 

http://www.lawschooldiscussion.org/students/index.php/topic,669.0.html

The courses for the fall will be Torts, Property, Civ. Pro. and Contracts.

"E&E" is short for "examples and explanations"  a series of books published by Aspen Publishing.  They vary in their quality, as different authors are in charge of the different books.  Glannon was the original author and I believe the Torts book was the original one.  The Torts and Civ. Pro. are superior to the Property book.  Have no experience with the Contracts one.

You asked me where you could find BOOKS, what the hell kind of response did you expect?  These aren't magical items, just like any other book, you can most likely find them cheapest on half.com if you have a little patience and, seeing as how libraries are sort of in the business of loaning out books, depending on the strength of your local library, they very well may have any or all of these books. 



Thanks for your generous help! ::)

I've never seen anyone recommend "The Common Law."  Can I get that at the library?

Also, where can I get Glannon's Civ Pro book at a good deal?

Thanks!

I think the best thing to read for prep is "The Common Law" by Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr.  A series of lectures he gave in the late 1800s on the development and policy issues surrounding common law (which would include Torts, Contracts and Property). 

Throw Glannon's Civ. Pro. E&E on top of that and you should be good to go.

In the two weeks since you started this thread I'm sure you could have found plenty of copies of the all of the E&Es on half.com for cheap.  No idea if The Common Law is available at your library, but they are but a phone call away...

Draino, look at us, both in love with northeastern and ending up at bc...

I know, right?  Those bastards deferred me and then waited until the last week of March to finally accept me after all the love I spread for them.  Never a peep about BC and they lemme in back in early Jan.!!!  I am still a fan of their co-op program, but am a bigger fan of BC overall.  ;D

I thought it was dope for the most part.  Most of the prospectives I met all seemed pretty cool and I definitely dug most of the current-students I met.  I was most curious just to meet the other accepted students just because there seem to be a lot of dumb-asses on these boards that are going to some very high ranked schools and I'm really hoping to not go to law scool with a bunch of dumbasses...none of the prospectives I met came across as openly-stupid, and in-fact, most seemed very sharp and were doing some very cool things currently.  Building was nice...I went back on Saturday and did my own self-guided tour, finding the crappy student-org offices that they neglected to show us on our guided tour.  The guy that taught my mock class was really good (I was in the M-Z group).  I was a little ill with the packet that career services handed out...full data on summer placement but no mention or even way to determine %-reporting for the graduate placement.  I'm psyched overall...just need to decide on a neighborhood now.
