Seriously, do they expect you to be razor sharp for every one of your classes... they cant expect to pile on tons for work and then for you to polish your responses to the point where you can lay down a perfect dissertation.  If a professor said that to me i would just say i was familiarizing myself with the nuances of that particular case... no, id probably do what he said and end up stuttering out a half-coherent response... then call him a facist book-burner!

When you read the first case create a black letter law... what the holding pretty much says in a nutshell... then when you read the next case it will either add a provision, create an exception, agree with the case, or simply overrule the previous holding... the synthesis of the two cases should add original black latter law and the new element (or in the case of the overruled holding, change the black letter law).

Westlaw has a free dictionary (well free to lawstudents if your school provides you with a personal account).
