I’ve been reading, analyzing and studying for about 10 hours today.
I've come to a point in which I find myself asking the question:
"Do they (meaning the university/professors) want us to actually learn the law and how to analyze fact situations and think, or simple breeze through the material so we can say we have done our assignment in which case you learn nothing?"
I like to take time and think about what I am reading, how it relates to the big picture, including an in depth analysis of how the court arrived at its conclusion based on applying rules of law to fact situations. Also thinking of arguments that could be made by both appelle's and appellant's counsel. Unfortunately, with the workload given at my university this is not really possible.
I'm going to continue to utilize this method even if its the case that i dont get the full assignment done. F THEM. My goal is learning analysis and legal methods, thinking. Not just blazing through it like the germans through poland in 1939.
