NALP has some interesting research on first year salaries. Everyone thinks lawyers make a huge sum fresh out of school, but sad reality is most don't.

Book Sales and Trades / 1L Property law study aids keyed to Dukeminier
« on: August 16, 2008, 09:32:03 AM »
I have two study aids that are keyed to Dukeminier, the leader when it comes to property law. More than likely, if you are a 1L, you'll be using his book. I am asking $20 (Not $20 each, $20 for both). Shipping is $9.80 Priority Mail flat rate box so you'll get them fast. If you are interested, PM me and we can arrange payment through PayPal.

*Gilbert Law Summaries- Property by Dukeminier -- some marks and highlighting
*West's High Court Case Summaries keyed to Dukeminier - new, no marks

General Board / Re: Question on Supplements/Hornbooks

Personally, I didn't you a single study aid that was keyed to my casebooks, except property and that wasn't on purpose. Everything I found was by Dukeminier, and he happened to be my casebook author. I'm sure it may have been more helpful, but my profs jumped around and skipped such huge sections or taught is so differently from the casebook, it didn't matter for me.

Depends on how old... The FRCPs were changed in December 2007, but a lot of the amendments deal with electronic media, so older ones shouldn't have that much, if any, effect on you. I used older versions (early 2000s) and got an A in the class. My prof recommended Glannon's E&E, though, and I did get the newest version of it.
As for other supplements, I used used ones and saved some $. For civ pro, and really for any of your classes, a lot will depend on how your prof teaches. I've had profs that followed commercial outlines almost to the T, and others who supplements were useless for.
There's plenty of threads on this, but I liked Crunchtime by Emanuel a lot. It was short and sweet and I wish they had it for ALL classes. Supplements keyed to your casebooks are also helpful (for example, Dukeminier is worshipped when it comes to property law). With the exception of Crunchtime, I used a different brand of supplement for every class. It is all about what works for you.

For con law, you'll definitely want the latest edition because the law evolves so quickly. For torts, property, etc., you could go with an older version and save some $$$ because the black letter law is basically the same.

I bought my textbooks at the campus bookstore first year only because we didn't get our schedule in time to know which books we were using. This year, I ordered online and saved over half. It also helped that some of my casebooks were older editions. Downside to that is there will probably be a new edition coming out before I can try to sell mine. Anyway, if you know the ISBN, try Googling it. Sometimes there are smaller bookstores that are selling it a little cheaper or offering free shipping. I've ordered from several smaller ones, as well as half.com, ebay and amazon. But if you're buying used, make sure you double check the condition of the book. If you don't mind highlighting, it shouldn't make a difference. But if you do, make sure the seller carefully describes the book's condition.

Looking for info as I have an interview coming up. Specifically looking for people who worked there or got an offer and can share some insight. Thanks.

Have you tried checking out the ABA's program. It is available to Law Student Division members. You can join for $25. The insurance is extra and there's a couple different plans to choose from and they are all pretty affordable. The plan is decent too, depending on your needs. https://www.uhcsr.com/ABA/
