Roe vs. Wade is our case?!?

I read Roe v. Wade at least twice for undergrad, but it's much different reading it closely as a law student. I'm cheating with the briefing. I copied the case from FindLaw into Word, and I'm going to use the highlighter function to book brief it.

Well, back to Roe.

has anyone been able to read (and understand) this without a law dictionary?

I roughly understood it and tried to brief it as best I can. In all honesty I have no idea what I'm doing. My guess is that they will put us in groups during orientation to get us in some heated discussion about our views on abortion and what we have gathered from the case at hand.

Thats just speculation though.

The John Delaney book Learning Legal Reasoning offers a good explanation of key legal terms. It also goes over briefing methods.
