So my professor is using the Farnsworth book for Torts: http://www.amazon.com/Torts-Cases-Quest ... 0735527040

Of course I can't find any supplements keyed to it (I checked Legalines, CaseNotes, and High Court Case Summaries). What do I do? If I buy the Legalines for all the other casebooks, do you think they will cover the vast majority of cases in the Farnsworth book? I already have Glannon and Prosser. I'm only looking for something that will tell me what the individual cases are about.

I also have legislation and regulation. We're using the Tushnet book. http://www.amazon.com/Regulatory-Admini ... 123&sr=1-1

Here's the course description:

Quote:
Legislation and Regulation is an introduction to lawmaking in the modern administrative state. It will examine the way Congress and administrative agencies adopt binding rules of law (statutes and regulations, respectively) and the way that implementing institutions -- courts and administrative agencies -- interpret and apply these laws. It will consider, in particular, the justifications for modern regulation, the structure of the modern administrative state, the incentives that influence the behavior of the various actors, and the legal rules that help to structure the relationships among Congress, the agencies, and the courts. It will consider, in particular, the justifications for regulation, the structure of the modern administrative state, etc.


What would be a good supplement for this?

Finally, I am taking Comparative Chinese Law. The description says it will be about building a legal system in China. We don't have a textbook. What's a good supplement for this? Darn electives are completely destroying last semester's strategy.

Thanks for any advice.

Aside from asking your professor about supplements, stick to Glannon's E&E for Torts.

As for Comparative Chinese Law, go learn Chinese j/k. There's probably not any "supplements" for such an obscure course. You may just have to read a "textbook" on the subject.

Your Legislation and Regulation class sounds like a fairly standard Administrative Law course--or at least those are the topics we covered in that course, more or less. I found the E&E helpful.

i would recommend though the UCC hornbook by white if your professor is very UCC-focused. it corresponds nicely with the casebook.
