Outlining Torts
« on: September 21, 2004, 01:57:31 PM »
Ok, I have started outlining Torts thanks to LAWGIRL! What a gal.
Anyway, wondering if any NSLers want to email each other our outlines. Compare and contrast is always good. I'm just getting started but if anyone would like to see what a stay-at-home mom (like I EVER stay at home) can do, I'll be glad to share!
Speaking of Vandy1L, I asked Andrew (the moderator) to move Vandy's nastiness and I also asked that he be banned from our board. Andrew said he hesitates to ban anyone because they usually just come back with a vengeance...he wants me to keep him informed, and I am. It is very easy to forward his hate mail to Andrew, just click on "report to moderator" at the bottom of the post.
Meanwhile, let's all swear an oath not to respond to him!
Oh, and I also forwarded all his posts to my Uncle in the Office of General Counsel.

I don't really have an outline.  I'm using storelaw and was going to use that to create the outline at some point.

I'd like to hear more on your thoughts about Storelaw, Jeff.

When you say you are outlining, do you mean you are just outlining the chapter in a general way, or are you following a formula?

StoreLaw is handy for briefing and then you can use your briefs to automatically make an outline.

it's most useful with course taught through casebooks because storelaw provides free outline templates that have the chapter and section names from the book and the case names.

but if I had to do again i think i'd go with flashlaw because it's free.

Just getting it organized is a helpful study tool. I'm old-fashioned. I'll be glad to send you a copy of what I have so far. I am basically defining the torts and their elements and adding cases and pertinent class discussion
