The case name is DeWeerth v. Baldinger; it's from both a district court and an appeals court

They're not commercial, but check out http://www.ilrg.com/students/outlines.

I checked out the website and didn't see what I was looking for. I need a case brief for a court case that was decided. I want to compare my case brief and am therefore looking for a case brief.

Thanks for all of your input guys!!!!! I will attempt it and see how it works out. The comment about creating a template for case briefs is very cool. I didn't think about it but it's a great idea!!

Keep the advice coming!

Thus far I only have an assignment from one book. However, according to the online website  I need to get 10 required books for all of my classes! So I don't know if I should just get that 1 book and buy the rest later??

Do you guys suppose that in order to save money I can get an earlier edition? For example, buy the 8th ed instead of the 9th.. or will that be too much of a hassle with reading/cases??

As for the locker, I think that my school is providing one free of charge

I'm all for buying the books as soon as you know what you need.  If you buy them now from amazon you can probably get some really good deals if you don't mind a used book.  I save at least $200 over the used price at the bookstore by purchasing the books online.

As far as the earlier editions go, do it at your own risk.  I did it one time for my income tax class successfully.  I tried doing it with some other classes, however, and it just wasn't going to work.  There are really too many variables.  With your first year courses, I would say go ahead and get the newer editions since the first year classes are all case based.  I think it might be easier to use an older edition with a class that is more code based where the code book is more of your primary textbook.  None of the first year classes are code based so your best bet is to just spend the extra money and get the newest edition out there.

Yea, that makes sense. Plus I don't want to be freaking out later in the semester because I don't have a case or something in my book.

At my school we don't even find out what section we're in until our orientation, thereby guaranteeing you have to buy your books on campus...

It sucks and its good. Some of the books that you will need might not be cheaper online.

If you're even thinking about ordering books online, you'll want to order them now.

I'm a 1L and I just got my orientation materials.  We're expected to read several chapters in our textbook and brief a bunch of cases.  I'm having trouble finding the text locally, and so I've looked on the internet.  Amazon says that it'll take 4-7 weeks for the book to ship. By then orientation will have long since passed.

Because of the rather hefty bit of work that I have to do before school even starts, I need my books right away so I can get started. Otherwise, I'll be off to a very rocky start.

The moral of the story is to get your books sooner rather than later.

Textbooks.com was awesome. They had most of my books and they were cheaper than the bookstore and they delivered it super fast, for free.


Thanks a bunch!! I'm gonna try to get them this week.
