How did a question about outlining software turn into a political pun thread?  :o

Oh, you can always get an idea of a person's politics by looking at their computer/software.  How many Republicans have you met that willingly use Apples/Macs?  I'll tell you: None.  That's over-priced hippy counter-culture *stuff*.  How many Republicans use (formerly IBM) Thinkpads?  I propose: Most.

*In clinical studies, Matthies was well tolerated, but women who are pregnant, nursing or might become pregnant should not take or handle Matthies due to a rare, but serious side effect called him having to make child support payments.

Absolutely use OneNote.  It's great for taking school notes.  Easy to organize, easy to move stuff around, VERY easy to search, and the automatic outline features are much better than Word.

I just ordered a new laptop with oneNote software on it but I won't receive it until like a day before school.  Is there a place where I can dl a trial version of it, to get familiar with it before school starts?

Err...how about Google Docs?  That was my plan.  That way all of my notes are backed up and the like.

Yeah--you can download a trial. 

Here's the link (though I can't believe I'm doing research for someone who's going to law school soon! ;))

I'd say that's a bad plan.  Back up on a flash drive, a portable hard drive, web storage, or all three if you'd like.  I have heard nothing but bad things from people who were relying on Google Docs.
