As I am finishing out my the end of my first year in law school, I have decided that I would like to post some resources for others to have, that I wish I would have known about before starting law school. First, make sure to do all your briefs, but just in case you cannot understand a topic, there are some great websites out there that I use to help in my studying, and to check my case briefs.
Just a word of caution: the point of case briefing is not to do the brief. [!] It is, instead, to understand how a single point of law fits within a broader context of that area of law. So, be careful. Some students all but kill themselves trying to do briefs, never realizing the real goal of briefing. Many of these realize that spending 40 hours a week briefing (which is what is needed to do them the way they're often shown) is unsustainable, so they give up. This leads to the worst of both worlds.
