Current Law Students / Why is Cooley Law so despised?
« on: June 17, 2008, 07:51:32 PM »
There are plenty of T4's out there, but Cooley Law seems to be treated with the most vitriol on this board. Why Cooley, as opposed to say a Florida Coastal? Aside from what some posters believe is the sub-standard academics, I think it has something to do with the ridiculous name itself. Try saying "I go to C O O L E Y" out loud without laughing. Pretty tough.

Current Law Students / What supplement goes w/ this class?
« on: June 16, 2008, 11:58:16 AM »
I'm taking a class called "Business Organizations" in the fall. The course reviews the uniform partnership statutes, the Model Business Corporation Act, agency and partnership relationships, federal securities laws, etc. I think this type of class goes by different names at different schools. Anyone know what type of supplement I should consider getting for this class? Also note, this is NOT a fed. tax course. Thanks for the help.

Widener U School of Law / Re: Class of 2011 - Delaware Campus

Hi. It was cool to see someone actually write something in the Widener Law section of this forum. Although I'm not a new student it doesn't seem like anyone else is replying to your post. I just finished my first year at the Delaware campus. If you've got any questions or concerns just reply to my post--I'm on this discussion board way too often so I'll see it.

Get him "Glannon's Guide to Civil Procedure, 5th ed." It's a supplement to first year civil procedure courses. Trust me, he'll thank you by the end of the semester. (Retail price $35~)

Current Law Students / Question about Civ Pro Supplements
« on: May 05, 2008, 08:59:23 PM »
Everyone always recommends the E&E for Civil Procedure. I was wondering if anybody has found any different supplements (Lexis' "Understanding" Series, or the "Nutshell" publications) to be helpful/informative. I have the E&E--but I'm working with a judge this summer and wanted something that wasn't so narrative.

Current Law Students / Best Supplement for Con Law
« on: April 13, 2008, 05:33:20 PM »
Can anyone recommend a concise supplement for Con Law? I'm looking for something that clearly lays out the various tests for due process, equal protection, and commerce clause jurisprudence and possibly provides some factual scenarios that implicate these tests. However, I don't want something thats way too long (i.e. the E&E).

Widener U School of Law / Re: Widener Harrisburg-Class of 2011!

Hey there.

I was surprised to see a post on here about Widener. I did the TAP program last May/June at Widener-DE. There were about 400 of us and maybe about 60 or so made it through. They'll tell you the first day that--at a maximum--25% of the students will be offered full admission. My advice is to just study your butt off for those 6 weeks. The professors will treat you like a 1st year student--so don't expect any sympathy for being in TAP.

The benefit is, if you make it through the program you'll have a head start on all the students already fully admitted. You know how to brief a case and have a generalized understanding of Torts and Civil Procedure--two classes that you'll take in the Fall.

In terms of location, I can only speak for the Delaware campus. I have heard that Harrisburg is more boring than DE--but people are always biased so who knows.

In any event, good luck with the program. Just do all the work and pay attention to what your professor is looking for on the final and you should do fine. If you have any other questions just repost on here.

Current Law Students / Re: Favorite class so far in law school?
« on: March 20, 2008, 05:34:17 PM »
The thread asked for a class (e.g. singular). Listing 3 classes is essentially the same as a part-time student's entire schedule. That being said, my favorite CLASS would be Torts.

Current Law Students / Which Chemerinsky supplement do we use?
« on: February 12, 2008, 07:10:51 PM »
Everyone on here recommends Chemerinsky's Con Law supplements. Which one is the best though?

-Constitutional Law, 2nd ed., (2005)
-Constitutional Law: Principles and Policies, 3rd ed., (2006)
-Constitutional Law 2007 Case Supplement.
-High Court Case Summaries on Constitutional Law, 2nd ed., (2006)

All are by Chemerinksy. When people refer to Chemerinksy are they referring to a single supplement, or some combination of these? Is any one better than the other? I'm looking for something concise.

What does the "EA" mean?
