You can still get your Torts materials, or Crim Law for the Winter.

If you have Strahilevitz for Property or Fennell for Torts, I have the texts.  You could buy the old Civ Pro I casebook too if you feel daring.

^ they need to release book lists imo

Any idea how we might confirm which semesters each professor will be visiting elsewhere? I thought about calling the law school, but I don't know whether that's frowned upon for this particular issue..

I don't see why they would really mind; you could email Richardson.  Leiter also modified his post:

UPDATE (5:30 pm July 16):  Just to be clear--since several folks have e-mailed about this--not every visit, below, is for the entire academic year; indeed, my guess is at least half are not, meaning students can expect many of these faculty to *also* be teaching at their home institution.  In the case of HLS, many of the visitors come in the Winter Term, i.e., just the month of January.

Or you could look at the schools' visiting appointments, although they are not completely clear:

As far as I know, Gersen will be gone only in the Spring; stands to reason that the others might be in Chicago for certain quarters.

I realize they won't release the schedule until Orientation, so if you're interested just shoot me a tell once you know if anything will be of use to you.

I finished my 1L year at the University of Chicago and am looking to sell off my case books and study aids.  Almost all have absolutely no markings of any kind and are virtually brand new, having only been read by me.  Those that are marked are only highlighted, but not excessively so.  Certain study aids were particularly helpful for certain classes, so if you are going to UoC and would like some advice/notes/outlines, feel free to ask. 

I ask that any buyer pay the shipping costs.  If you are going to school in Chicago, we could arrange a pickup in person.  Send me a PM if interested, thanks.

This thread needs more posters.

What range exactly qualifies as an "A"?  And what kind of average does, say, the top 10% of the class have after 1-2 years?
