Personally, I find the best course of action is to print out copies of all of your outlines. Then, have those copies bronzed. In the future, once each year, five minutes after midnight, by the flickering light of a candle, you will look over those callow words you wrote in those long-distant days when you traded in your youth for power and money.

Then, and only then, should you finish off the remainder of your armagnac and finish the bloodletting of the associate who completed the lowest billables for the year. Perhaps someday, many years from now, a cheeky young associate will find these notes and ponder how this heartless partner could have ever pondered if a contract with God was enforceable....

and then you will unleash the hounds.

I'd keep them for Bar Review purposes. Even though you will be studying Barbri, there may be stuff in your notes and outlines that will help you remember or understand the material more thoroughly (like hypos/examples).
