Hey--anybody into the PLS approach?  It seems to make sense, but if anyone has tried it, would like to hear your thoughts.  Thanks.

I've gotten through half of two of the recommended books (Aspen's civil procedure and Aspen's Constitutional Law).  So far they are really good.  The book had come recommended to me by someone who graduated not that long ago - he wished he had really found it before he started law school and not during.

I figure even if the classes cover more/less than the books PLS2 recommends, at least I have somewhat a head start in that I know the terms and something about the subject.

Planet Law School by Atticus Falcon.  It is on it's second edition and a huge book that "supposedly" gives you a lot of information about law school.  It has a whole list of books to read to get you ready for the fall.  However, the author is really, really down on law school.  I've heard that if you take the negative attitude only somewhat seriously until you get to your respective school and see if it is true and follow a lot of his advice (especially about the prep work), that it is an extreme help...

I read a post on the yahoo group for PLS.  Someone was considering delaying law school until next spring because they might not have enough time to finish all the reading suggested by PLS before the fall term.


I've read about 30 pages or so of the book.  There are many interesting points, but the author obviously has little respect for current law school instruction methods.  I'm going to finish reading the book and will consider the suggested readings, but I keep a big grain of salt next to me while reading PLS.   ;)

There was someone - but then atticus wrote back and said that she should just do what she can and not wait till spring.  With admissions like they are right now, I couldn't imagine waiting till next time if I'd actually gotten in... but that might just be me :)

Wow, I recently stumbled on to this "diamond-mine" forum and been reading it for the past couple weeks.

I am suprised to read about many peers in the simliar situatsions as I am.

Anyway, a co-worker who decided not to go to law school handed me PLS to read and I am halfway thru Ch. 5 at the moment.

ALready, I am somewhat nervous about law school and wondering if I should really order the "PRIMER" books and start preparing.  I brought up my concerns to my friends who are practicing lawyers re: their law school educational experiencesa and such, they said that they personally did not have such of a hard or bitter experience. Instead of wokring hard before school starts, I should spend that time relazing so that when school does start I will be ready to go into study mode and not be burnt out already.

I have also read more than half of "Broken Contract" written by a HLS.

After you've read them all, could you write us a one page summary?   ;)
