POLL: How important is reading for class?
« on: October 19, 2007, 11:58:50 AM »

Hundreds of Outlines for 1L, 2L & 3L classes at many law schools around the country & generic outlines. 

All the outlines are completely free.

I read everything, and the hornbooks, and the outlines.

Then again, I like reading a lot.

I think most people eventually settle into reading when you are likely to get called on.

As a 1L, it's important.  As a 2L and 3L not so much.

As a 1L I read everything, everyday (well almost everyday) and I felt that it was very important to get a feel for what the law was because it was so new.  Now, as a 2L, I read only when I am likely to be on-call (one week in the entire semester for evidence...).  Also, I stopped paying attention in class.  However, I feel like I know the courses so much better than any of my 1L courses; I'm just much more efficient (it just doesn't hurt to actually know what is happening when the damn casebook says "estoppel" again).  1L is all about learning how to be a law student, and now I know.

Really, after 1L, who still reads everything...
