Ok, sources of outlines:
- Storelaw has some nice plug and play outlines for most casebooks for their software. It's just section headings, you'll actually have to fill in the blanks, but it's free.
- Google and you'll find a ton, but it's a crapshoot if they're keyed to your book. Plus, you never know how good the student was.
- Emanuel or Gilbert are both good outlines in general. I have a a Glannon and I think it sucks, might as well read the real book.
- Google again and you'll find places like 4Law, etc. Some are good, some are suspect.
- Storelaw will sell you the case briefs that plug into their software.
- Westlaw, but briefs are kinda thin IMO, like too thin
- Legalines, or whatever brand is matched to your book should work. I use Legalines for two of my classes, and Casenote for another
LOL, one of our teachers flat out said that anyone who was decently smart could just grab an Nutshell (Emanuel I think?) and be set! She rocks. I got my second quiz back, this time in Civ Pro and I'm still top 5%! I don't let my classmates though, I just pretend like I'm working hard and having trouble 'getting in' like they are. I faked missing the 2nd question on the quiz. When the whole class let out a collective WTF? sign/groan when the Prof. read the answer out, I acted like I missed it too. It was tough, because inside I wanted to be like that dude on ESPN that stands up and goes BOOOYA! Keep typing biatches, get your words per minute up and maybe you'll be my secretary one day.
