In those particular classes, it shouldn't be a problem. The black letter law has changed little, if at all, in that amount of time. However, in Con Law, you definitely will want the most up-to-date edition.

Con law is definitely a class you'll want to cough up the money for and get the latest editions. As for torts, contracts, property it's not so much an issue. For Civ Pro, there are some changes (such as the FRCPs were amended in 2007) but otherwise I used older versions and was fine plus I saved some dough.

OneNote is nice because you don't have to be hassled by the automatic formatting. Plus it is nice to be able to arrange things in one "notebook" with different sections, and it is really easy to search multiple notebooks if you are looking for something in a hurry. I got it about a week before I started my 1L year and that was plenty of time for me to figure out how to use it and get accustomed to it. I'm still discovering great things about it.

General Board / Re: E&Es, hornbooks, etc.

I had some profs that shunned them and some that endoresed them. My civ pro prof recommended Glannon's E&E, property prof recommended Sprankling's Understanding Property. I found the Law in a Flash cards helpful for reviewing right before I went to bed more for the hypos than for the black letter law. I fell in love with CrunchTime. Otherwise, my preference really varied by class.

General Board / Re: moot court + law review?
« on: July 25, 2008, 07:43:18 AM »
I'm in the same situation. I know the importance of law review but I also hear how important moot court can be for someone interested in working at the AG's office or DA's office. Is it at all possible to manage both?

I had 9 o'clock classes three days a week and had an hour commute, but I am a morning person so it didn't bother me. But as a commuter, one thing that might be bothersome is the fact that classes are spread out and you're sitting around in between. Don't get me wrong, it is nice because you have time between class to eat, chat with friends, which isn't always easy if you don't live on or near campus, and even read, study or review for your next class.
Unfortunately, it isn't a 9-5 schedule with an hour lunch built in. I agree with Lauren, you're best bet is to try to find someone how goes to that school or find the school's schedule on its Website. There might be different sections listed, but you can at least get a general idea.

General Board / Re: ABA work policy

I worked 20 hr./wk as a 1L and it definitely is manageable but it depends on the person. I agree with what the previous poster said. My ER was great as far as understanding my priorities and giving me time off for finals. I admit I missed some social events I would have liked to attend, but I didn't live in the law library. I had sufficient time between work and class to get out and live.

This was a great thread. Assuming I get law review, I'm dropping Secured Transactions or finding something else to take in its place
