Well with briefs you don't even need to buy the book, so your reading load will be almost nil. 

Then you can spend the rest of your time convincing your classmate with the #1 outline to give it to you :-)

You should still read at least in your first year. When you get to the real world you will have to read full cases so you might as well get used to doing it in school. Sometimes these briefs leave out important issues as well and in your first year you have nothing to do, but study so you might as well do the reading. Then use sources like this one to confirm what you read is correct.
