Long story short, I tried to be the good student and took entirely too many hours in a short period of time in order to graduate early. While I did graduate early with honors, nonetheless the lack of free time resulted in me being far from as prepared for the LSAT as I would have liked to have been, and my score indicated that. In short, I think I screwed myself over in that respect. That said, I do now have eight free months before law school starts, and I'm trying to do some reading to really get ahead of the game.
Your first year classes are generally going to consist of Contracts, Torts, Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Property, and Legal Writing.
For Torts, I went on Amazon.com today and bought Glannon's "The Law of Torts: Examples and Explanations." The reviews were pretty good for it, so I bought it. However, it seems I will need another tort book to go along with it, any recommendations for something to read after I finish Glannon's book?
Also, for Civil Proceure, I bought Glannon's "Civil Procedure: Examples and Explanations." The reviews of it were overwhelmingly positive, however I would still like to read something besides this for Civil Procedure.
For legal writing, I was planning on buying "Scholarly Writing for Law Students." Does anyone know anything about this?
Also, can anyone give me some recommendations for books regarding contracts, criminal law, constitutional law, and property?
