Besides BSLA, is there any other outline resource?  I know that you discourage their use, but I studied using outlines in undergraduate (I outlined most lecture courses by topic, using the syllabus), and I think that they help me learn.

Good luck in school tomorrow.   :P

My neighbor made a three page Greene brief.  I think that's somewhat over-the-top, as he admitted as well.  And everyone is making me nervous today with their coffee and elaborate preparation; one guy has been studying for hours at this point.  I just read the cases once and I'll play it by ear.

When will we learn to mimic judicial reasoning?  Does it click at some point?  Most of the Torts reasoning seems completely off-the-wall.  I can't understand why the court rules that one thing happens to be battery and another thing is not battery, unless there's an element (intention, transfer intent) that seems to jive with the fact pattern.

So I should be looking at the procedural history in great detail?

I've been extracting the rule of law and identifying the issue, but a few of my NG friends are going into the reasoning like crazy, and I don't know whether I should follow their lead.

The BLSA outlines cover CivPro, but I don't see Torts, Elements, and Property.  I'm reading through the CivPro ones right now and I think they're a great study guide; I can zero in on important elements instead of being derailed by details.  Does anyone know, or can anyone send me, where I can find outlines for my other three classes?  I have Gersen, Strauss, and Strahilevitz.

Thanks!
