What would you recommend for Contracts if not E&E? Do any other 1L's agree?
After a year long struggle to find a good supplement for K's, I decided to just use the Gilbert CO. My prof. recommended the Calamari & Perillo hornbook - it is one of those green hornbooks put out by West...think 'Prosser & Keeton on Torts'. These books are *not* useful for students. They are written in a scholarly language and take a *very* long time to read (and they're boring as hell).
For hornbook reading for K's, I recommend Chrielstein's "Concepts and Case Analysis in the Law of Contracts". It is a little blue book put out by Foundaion Press. They have one for torts, written by Kenneth Abraham (from UVA) called "The Forms and Functions of Tort Law". Both are excellent. They are small and interesting - good subway reading. They don't cover all the BLL, but really focus on the goals/policy...one you understand that, the rules are practically obvious.
