Changes in Emmanuel editions
« on: September 24, 2008, 01:35:14 PM »
I've been told by a few people that the Emmanuel for Con Law is a pretty good supplement, but I'm not ready to spring for a new edition. I've found a few older editions on Amazon, but I'm wondering how much they change from year to year. Anybody have any insight?

For a subject like constitutional law, nothing is really going to change.

Anything from the past few years is just fine.  The stuff you're learning as a 1L in conlaw has been relatively stable for quite some time.  Even if things have changed, you're going to learn the background material first (that will be in the supplement) and then simply add a new case into the mix.

My prof covered some of the older stuff, but the bulk of the class was related to more recent decisions, so the newest edition was the best option for me, but even then, some of the stuff was so new it wasn't in the books yet.
