Is it just an assigned case before class
class always start with stripper.
Every casebook/ professor has a different style, but you have the gist of it. Read cases and talk about them. Very little black letter law is talked about.
Everyone's experience is different, but I respectfully disagree with the comment that 'very little black letter law is discussed.' Perhaps compared to what is actually out there on the books, yes, but think about Crim Law and Crim Procedure - there is a lot of black letter law thrown at you.
