alternatively, you could skip class and just take notes on your laptop with the recording in the background. 

I am *such* a good student


Apparently prof Donahue does not allow laptops in his Property class...so much for taking all my notes on my computer...it's kind of annoying but I guess it's cool that he will be posting recordings of each class. I think I'm just going to end up typing up my handwritten notes after class. It'll be extra work but hopefully it'll make studying easier since my handwriting is terrible and after a while I can't read some of it or remember what I was trying to say...I guess I should probably work on that lol.

shoot.  i just found it:

Property/Section 4 & Section 6 (Mann)

The casebook for the course is Dukeminier, Krier, Alexander & Schill, Property (6th ed., Aspen, 2006).  For the first class on Tuesday, September 5, please read Pierson v. Post, pp. 17-21.

You may not use laptop computers in class.

I'm confused with all these websites with all kinds of different instructions.  I afraid I'm going to miss a key website and miss an assignment.  They need to get their stuff together: put all course announcements on one page and let that be it!

This is true.  I was completely unaware of that site for sure.

The good news is that, if they know what they're doing, we'll be undumbified by the end of orientation.

As long as that gives us enough time to do our reading and be on top of everything.

thanks for the helpful link!  seriously are we supposed to be so giddy about getting into hls that the whole leaving us with basically no clue about anything until the last minute deal is supposed to be acceptable?  if it weren't for lsd i feel like i wouldn't know anything about my classes, certainly wouldn't know about the first day reading assignments from this page...  so much for not being like the paper chase

I suspect most will find out about these details at orientation. Perhaps that's the intent...

The no-laptop policy for Donahue's Property class (section 1) is in the "annoucements" section of the course website. I don't think I can post the link because I'm pretty sure it requires logging in to see the site.

I agree there are so many sites with info out there...thanks for posting the site with the list of course annoucements. Apparently there is work for the Legal Research and Writing class that I was not aware of until now. I hope they end up putting all the necessary info on each of the course sites cause right now the info seems to be scattered on different web sites.
