Briefs: which ones
« on: September 09, 2004, 04:33:10 AM »
Q: Neophyte aXes: how many of these ContraKs cases should we brief? 
I understand that the best approach might be to brief ALL the contracts cases, but I'm only going 1/2 time, and am already spending >= 14 hours per week on my studies.  I am probably making it too hard, but I don't see the value in cheating by just memorizing or copying an outline.
If you think education's expensive, try ignorance.

I'm briefing all the contract cases.  I find them easier to brief the cases from the casebook than from the opinions themselves.

I think we are expected to brief them all.

Doesn't it seem as if there are too many cases to brief during a single week, when you include all the classes? It seems too much to me to do well. How do others feel?

I've felt overwhelmed, but if you don't brief them or something like it how will you understand them?

If you are talking about Lewis's Contracts class, I would strongly suggest you breif all the cases at least loosely.

I am doing my best to brief all of them. Especially Torts and Contracts since he calls on the class to brief. I would think Crimes is not too focused on the briefs.....
How is everyone studying for Crimes?

I agree.  I think these are the easier ones to brief, meaning the ones in the casebook are easier than the actual opinions.
