Went to my first class last night. Did pretty will with the briefing, although I found out that briefs need to brief.

I am briefing Sullivan v. O'Connor (Mass. Supreme Ct.).  Itís way confusing 7pgs of incoherent rambling I have the facts and the conclusion, but issue and analysis are tough.

I am told briefs should be one page if possible.  You want something that will quickly tell you the important aspects of the case.

I've done two so far.  both were a page and a half.  tomorrow is my first class.

jj, I'm finding that my briefs for contracts & property are longer than those for Torts and Crim law.  How about you?

I've been working very hard to keep them short.  Don't you know my contracts prof said it was short on facts.  My longest brief so far is two pages, but I haven't gotten much feedback from the profs, so.....

Well, I have to be up at 5:30 to go to work.  I have four cases to read and five to brief.  I feels just like law school in the movies.   ::)
