What do you think about reading cases v. reading case briefs? After all, isn't doing well on exam all about knowing why a certain case is there and what rule applies to certain facts? I think this could be done just as well by simply reading briefs. I don't necessarily find cases confusing, but I just think it's an awful way of studying and preparing for exams because it has too many extraneous facts that interfere with my attempt to focus on important issue triggering facts. Any thoughts?
That sounds good, but I've seen profs rip guys and new A-hole when they dont actually know the details of the case. Why? It shows laziness and they tend to get pissedoff about it.
