Delaney's Learning Legal Reasoning (1988)
« on: February 13, 2007, 08:11:36 PM »
I was just wondering if the Delaney's Learning Legal Reasoning 1988 edition is outdated and I will need to get the 3rd edition from 2003, or if the 1988 edition will be sufficient.

That book basically just shows how to understand a case.

It's useful, but not if you've already been reading cases for a semester.

If you want something for exam tips get "how to do your best on law school exams". You may want to email Delaney directly, I think a new edition of the exam book is due out soon.

I can't speak to the old editions of any of his books because I have the most recent editions of all of them. I would probably go with the most recent editions if you can.

the exam book is quite helpful--mostly obvious stuff, but it helps you organize what you intuitively know you need to do.
