I liken it to be shot in the gut, as the student looks at his brief in disbelief... et tu Civil Procedure?

Im down to 4 different highlighters... my goal is to be down to 2 by by 2L  ;D Also i write 3-4 sentences on the first page in the margins to give me a quick overview of what happened in the case for when i get called on and my mind goes blank for a second  :D

To tell you the truth i dont think it has that much to do with the facts... a large part of contracts seems to be governed by public and business policy.

When I just started looking into law school everyone and their mother told me this was not possible.  I dont think thats true, anyone else find this to be the case?

One more question for you citing pros... do you have to cite every line??
Ex:

The plaintiff purchased a ring for the defendant. (cite?).  After they broke up the plaintiff requested the ring back. (cite?).

In my torts class last week someone was unprepared, instead of wasting the classes time he actually said, "im unprepared to argue this case" professor just went to the next person... i think they respect the fact you are honest with them instead of trying to bull your way through a question.  Everyone is different though.
