My law school experience has been very laid back and enjoyable.  I think that the experience you have depends on the law school you choose, and the way you react to it.

Glannon's Civ Pro E&E has a very good, very thorough discussion on Erie.  You should read it, and then try to Erie questions at the end of the chapter.

Ah, the bad two week final exams period...  It seems so awesome in theory until study time for the third exam rolls around and you're ready to throw your laptop out the window (praying it will hit someone who is enjoying a no-lawschool life).

Who wrote your casebook?  Sometimes professors write hornbooks or outlines (or even E & Es).  If your professor authored a study guide, I would suggest that first and foremost.  My professor authored a tort outline and if your prof did you can count on that being pretty on point with what you are doing in class.  I would also recommend Glannon's E & E.  Good luck!

Same prof for all quotes.  He is infamous for these types of quotes, so notetaking in class is fun.  I absolutely adore him, but he tends to get off task a lot.

"An advantage to Alzheimer's is that every day is a new world."

"I’m prostituting myself; wasting my time talking to you people."

"No, the guy who died already lost his case."

"…and these weren’t idiots or immigrants or anything."

"Sometimes I get frustrated and wish I lived in Stalin’s Russia."

"It never occurred to people 40 years ago to be concerned whether the professor respects the students… I can understand the mafia being concerned about respect, but come on!"

[in response to class not knowing something] "You don’t have to be very bright to get along in life, do you?"

"Gas attendants are like monks who pray for the souls of all of us… we pay them and they smell the vapors all day so we don’t have to."

"We can all think of people who the world would be better off if they would just sit at home and watch tv."

[to a female student (wearing a sun dress) after she volunteered to get a book from the library] "You’re irresistible; they’ll never be able to say no to that."

"If you were in World War I, you were as fungible as a pencil."

[upon hearing construction noise] "The only way to end it is to kill yourself."

I hate Civ Pro.  It's not hard, but it's BORING.  My teacher pretty much reads straight from the book, and no, I'm not talking about the casebook.  The RULE book.  Yawn.

I think almost every school is helping out.  There is a linked website on the other side of the board with a huge list of schools that are on board.  I think it's wonderful that so many schools want to help out.

and, no that is not my picture, so don't even start that sh-t about that being a potential source of my problem.

I also did a delta for defendant, and a pi for plaintiff.  Lots of fun with symbols.
