I was expecting a ton o' casebooks for 1L. I got my books at registration today.
For contracts, I got what I expected a case book of contracts. At least I think it's a case book. Studies in Contract Law - Murphy, Speidel, and Ayres
But for torts, the only text book seems to be a hornbook. The Law of Torts by Dobbs and it says on the cover Hornbook Series. I was surprised at that.
For criminal law, I got another surprise. One book is the Tennessee Criminal Justice Handbook, published each year by the state as a supplement to the statutes.
The other textbook and only other book for criminal law is Criminal Law: Examples and Explanations by Singer and La Fond. No casebook, just examples and explanations.
Wudya think of that? It's one of the primers that PLS II recommends if I'm not mistaken. You think maybe Atticus Falcon was wrong about at least one school?
