40 per class, right?
That's about right - more for legal writing, just about that for Torts and a bit less for Contracts. It takes awhile though b/c the content and objective is different than just reading for fun or the kind of reading we did as undergard's (or even as an MBA student). The good part is that the reading is mostly pretty interesting - real cases and real people...
Means if you have 3 classes the next day (I have 3 classes each day, except Tuesday when I only have 2 classes), you have to read 120 pages?
That is insane amount of reading.
I have notice that casebooks contains more than just cases, large portion of them is general writings on broad topics like 'what is negotiation' or 'the defense of legal insanity' or the author's 'notes' on a particular case. How much emphasis do we put on those? Do we only read the cases carefully and just skim through these 'extra' stuff?
