Oh  yeah!!!! Would never nevah try that with Lewis. Has Smith actually called on someone to give a  full brief....a brief that would be difficult to do from the book.
Seems like he is not too big on facts etc.?

that's a briefing technique that Law School Confidential talks about.  You highlight different sections of the opinion with different colors, like blue for facts, yellow for law, etc.  Then you don't write a separate brief.  When called on you just look for the corresponding color and read from there.

There were actually two ppl that book-brief in Contracts on Monday.  I thought they had some serious balls doing that.  And they screwed up too.  But Lewis cut them some slack.

I wasn't one of those. Mine actually went well. Lewis appeared to think so too. I think the key is to know the story line through and through.
