What do you think of these Constitutional Law supplements?
« on: April 25, 2005, 09:34:46 AM »
Constitutional Law
1) Chemerinsky's hornbook
2) West sum & substance quick review
3) emanuel's outline


Anything else that you can recommend? I hear this class is a pain in the rear end!

The Cherminsky book, Constitutional law: Principles & Policies.  Very thick and comprehensive, but has just about every important case up until 2002.  You can look up the cases and topics you are studying (no need to use the whole book), this makes the book less intimidating.  I used this book and my notes, and my outline is right-on for may con law class.

Thanks for your help! So you definitely don't think I should purchase it then?  All law libraries will have one, right?
Were any other books on my list that are good to get?

I'm not sure if  libraries would have it.  I just bought it so that I could mark it up and highlight the important cases, etc.  I don't know much about Sum & Substance, or Emanuel's, but I also have Gilbert's which is good (Emanuel's probably similar), but One I started using the Chemerinsky book, That's all I used.
Hope this helps!  Good luck!
