Osbeck is the *&^%! 4 words: "The cite is right"
Whitman is cool but I thought she was too nice in class - people would say things that were wrong but she would kind of dance around it so as to avoid embarrassing them.
Simpson is the funniest professor I have ever had, and I don't think I've ever laughed so much in a class. But I can't say it was the best class in terms of actually learning the subject matter.

I agree w/ others that you shouldn't bother recording the lectures. But if you must, MAKE SURE that you have the professor's approval first. You can get in deep *&^% for recording a lecture w/o asking the prof. Some won't care but some have a strict policy against it.

bump for trying to figure out how to study for exams.
Seconded. It shouldn't feel super easy or anything, but I agree that it's not as bad as everyone wants you to think. Not being stressed is a huge asset in law school.

just for clarification b/c of the question that was asked, in case it stemmed from something I wrote earlier - I meant that I didn't open the book during the exam - I open the book plenty during the semester, that's why I didn't have to open it during the exam.
I don't believe so, not at UMich at least. My recently-graduated SO has her nose pierced and she takes it out for court, some work, and interviews but never for class, and didn't have any problems.

I took practice exams, when available, but I didn't go overboard. My focus was never on memorization (obviously, for open book tests), but instead, for grasping the issues and their interrelationships, and for practicing finding the information I might need during the test.
Another reason to clarify what "open" means is that you don't want to be that guy that got hauled out of my property final for using a commercial outline when they weren't allowed. (And I'm convinced he didn't know, because he was sitting in the front row with the commercial outline in plain sight of the proctor).
