Case Books for Bar Exam and After
« on: May 09, 2009, 01:21:47 PM »
Does anyone know if case books are useful when studying for the bar or after law school? I just finished my first year and was considering selling my books, but don't want to if I will need them later. Anyone have any idea? Thanks.

Pretty sure they will be worth nothing to you at that point.

I'd sell them.  If you take Barbri or some other bar review course (which probably at least 80% of students do), you'll get condensed outlines anyway.  There's actually not much caselaw/theory on the  bar exam (at least not for the states I looked into).
