All this stuff sounds really on point.  The problem I was running into was they want to tell me non-law related stuff about themselves and other ppl in our section and I'm kinda like "yeah..that's nice...  :-\... but how about that Rule 12 (b) (6)?"   :D   Once they get back on track, they really are helpful but lawd, I feel like I steer the group.   :-\ :-X

The thing I find most helpful are the review sessions orchestrated by  BLSA.   We have these 6 hour power sessions every couple of weeks.  But I'd like some "meat" to tide me over until the next power session... dont exactly know how to get that  across to the "study group".

I'm a Civ Pro wiz. I thought it was difficult but I definitely excelled in it and remember it the most. It's also my favorite subject. I highly recommend the Sum & Substance Audio CDs by Arthur Miller. I'd also be happy to give anyone my Civ Pro flowcharts and outlines. (Remember that when using someone else's notes who did not take your professor, to adjust as neeeded.)

Seriously?  I'd like to take you up on that offer if it still stands.

We're not accepting this CHANGE UP in the rules. Period. American presidents have been in the bed with organized crime, corporate pilferers, and the like for years. And all u want to put on this man is that his pastor said "Gotdamn America?" Hell, America.U got off pretty damn well, if you ask me...

for property Property: Examples and Explanations 2nd ed.2004 Burke and Snoe  or Real Property in a Nutshell. 3d ed.  Roger Bernhardt


for con law Understanding Constitutional Law, 3rd ed. Redlich, Attanasio, and Goldstein (i had the 02 version.. but it was updated in 05 so I'd get that one if I were u) or  Constitutional Law in a Nutshell. 4th ed. Barron, Jerome A. and Dienes, C. Thomas.

For property I'd go with Gilbert's on Property (J. Dukeminier).

Con Law I don't get to take until next year.   >:(

BUT, we are registering for our Spring elective in a week.

Unfortunately, I can't take Public Interest Lawyering with Lani Guinier, Religion and the First Amendment with Martha Nussbaum, Admin Law with Cass Sunstein, or Free Speech Theory with Tushnet.

But I can take Foreign Relations Law with Jack Goldsmith, Race Relations Law with Randy Kennedy, Evidence, or Complex Litigation.

I'm gonna bid in that order.  Hoping I end up with FoPo Law or Race Relations.  Evidence and Complex Lit sound like work!

L-

I would check to see if there's a high court supplement written toward your textbook.  I've found high court (for crim law) particularly useful.  Can't speak for property or con law.
