Can anyone recommend an effective Torts supplement, similar to Glannon w/ Civ Pro?

Not a single serious answer--even from the NYU guy. I would have expected more from someone who consciously made their user name "NYU 2nd yr".

p.s. What are you going to do when you become a 3L?

Well, I wouldn't say that's "pretty much" what Torts is. There's also Wrongful Death, Nuisance, Products Liability, Defamation, Privacy and Civil Rights, among others. I created the post to see if anyone was aware of a well know/well respected or effective supplement--such as Glannon for Civ Pro.

Can anyone recommend any supplement material for TORTS? I'm a 1L and my class spent most of September studying Intentional Torts. Since October we've been focusing on Negligence--which I think will take up nearly the rest of the semester. Any material that focuses on these areas specifically? Thanks.

I just have some general questions regarding the tier rankings that we seem to measure our lives by.

1.) If your at a T4 school and in the top 5% of your class, what are your odds of transferring to a T1 school? The posts about this topic seem to disagree as to whether or not your LSAT score matters as much given your high class rank. Also, anyone ever make this transfer?

2.) Are you career prospects still better at a T1 school if your an "average" student than at a T4, top 5%, law review, etc.? (Disregarding all the other factor that weigh into this, such as job market/school's reputation).

Any insight would be helpful. Thanks.
