Another non-trad here. Glannon's E & E for Civ Pro is a must!!!  Also pick up a copy of a surviving law school book.  I have one by Ramy you can have for free if you want it.  Prosser on Torts is a good call.  Also consider Perillo & Calamari on contracts. 

That's really nice of you. How much would postage be?

Sitting in the back row in Family Law right now, I can see at least a few facebook pages on the laptops ahead of me... and only 2 Word docs with people taking notes.

And you're on LSD...

I don't understand what the big deal is. It was just a question out of curiousity. If the question is "off limits" then don't answer it.

If you're genuinely curious, I'll humor you. My children do have the same father. I was married to him, but it didn't work and we divorced shortly after our daughter was born.

I'm 27, mom to two kiddos, 7 and 4.

Both by the same daddy?

I had thought that I would find a higher level of maturity on a LS forum than elsewhere on the internet.

M1ss, just so you know you're not alone, I'm also reading law before 1L, and mostly because I like it.  I did pick up some casebooks already (well known ones, like Prosser on Torts) so as to get the abbreviated versions. 

I too am a non-trad, and have just spent four years fulfilling my "adventure" dream, and so the idea that I need any more "fun" time before school is plain silly - I'm just ready to get going, and I figure if I learn law that isn't covered by my profs, it still will be covered by the bar, so no loss.

Do what works for you.

Glad to know I'm not alone. It's nice to get suggestions from other people, but I'm learning fast that everyone is so different and I really do need to do what works for me.

Where does one buy casebooks?

Why are you so anxious to start law school before you start law school?

I just really, really like to read. I'm in the middle of "Consciousness Explained" by Dennett right now. Not light reading, but it's what I enjoy.

Thanks for the replies (and for spelling out my sn correctly! lol)

I read Law School Confidential, too, and I too wanted more of the same. I bought it last night at B&N but haven't cracked it open yet. As for Getting To Maybe, I asked about it at B&N last night and they said they don't carry it because it's a textbook. Obviously, I can order it from Amazon, but is it hard to understand before you get to law school?

Don't read cases!  Also, someone suggested 'volunteering' at a law firm?!  Holy sh*t, are you out of your mind?  I can't think of a worse way to spend your summer.  It won't help you in school, it won't get you a better job down the road, and it will drive you mad.

Considering I am knee-deep in outlines and casebooks, the thought of wasting your summer before law school reading cases or preparing for the curriculum is almost insulting.

Please, for the sake of all of us miserable law students, go to the beach, play sports, go out with your friends, read books for fun, waste time.  When you're in this position next year, outlining civpro and considering jumping off the Sears Tower, you will be able to look back fondly on a simpler time.


good luck and congrats on acceptance.

thanks ;)
