I got an email about getting a free copy of essay writer and one test for torts and one for contracts.

If I were you, I would at leat try it out. You can't beat free.
OneNote seems to have somewhat better organization features. Instead of dealing with a bunch of .doc files, you can have just 1 notebook file (.one) that you can section and subsection with ease. It's designed more for outlining, so it makes it easier to move around items in your outline than the traditional copy-paste method. It's best feature is probably the ability to mark and search marks easily. Definitions, important points, things you have questions on, etc. can all be marked in your outline and searched really easily and quickly.Is it nicer than Word? I think so. Is it worth $50-100 bucks? Not so sure, I'd have a better feel after I actually used it at law school. I'd say its worth downloading on your law school laptop around a couple weeks to a month before classes start to play around with a little bit and use at the start of classes. Easier to decide then.
Most people stick with MS Word for both note taking and outlining... But there are some specific programs for that.Does anyone use one of them, or did anyone try to? Which one? Is it good or useless?And what about Microsoft's OneNote software?
We use Wordperfect at the office to do merge documents with Time Matters and TIme Slips which a lot of legal offices use - the experience working with it in school will be positive for the "real world". ALso, there is a Legal Toolbar on wordperfect which sets up an outline and other features which I have yet to use. HTH
