I bought a package of law school notes from ebay.com. They are in a zip file. I broke down and bought a second generation Kindle so that I can put the zip file on it after the notes are saved in pdf format. I had originally planned to have the law school notes printed out. But the contracts portion, alone, is 487 pages. I will use these notes to study for the certified paralegal exam. The other information I am studying is a little outdated. I think I will finally have the required 500 dollars needed to sit for the exam this September. I am also working with a couple of inmates on their habeas corpus petitions, pro bono, under the direction of an attorney. I have decided to work for free so that I can establish a professional reputation before I start looking for a paid position. Being an attorney would be better. But, I decided to wake up and smell the coffee: I just don't have the money to go to law school.
Have you decided to brief any of the cases in the Gilberts books? I know that briefing even ten of the cases in each volume will slow you down. But, the court opinions help me memorize the black letter law because each case states the law as part of the court opinion. As a result, if you read
enough cases you will have that particular rule of law memorized. The court opinions also bring the black letter law to life.
