Older Editions of Law Books
« on: August 08, 2002, 04:19:29 PM »
A friend who graduated a few years ago has offered to give me his old books.  Most of them are older editions of the books I am required to have.  Is there usually a big difference between a third or fourth editions of the same book?  Law school books are so expensive, and if it is possible to manage with the older books, I would really like to take advantage of his offer.  Please advise quickly.   :-[ :-/

It seems like it'd be pretty easy to get by with older books.  If there is a case missing you can always just look it up or photocopy it from another student who has the current edition.  The notes after the cases might be a little different, but again, you could just photocopy them.
