As a student, Stanford Law School is both exciting and challenging.

Same, but I am unsure if it should be "Harvard law student" or "Harvard Law student."

I posted about this book a long time ago: The Gregg Reference Manual. I plan on brushing up before heading to school but this thing is phenomenal and was highly recommended by several professors in undergrad because it can answer any conceivable question. It was like $30 with a coupon and really is a great resource.

Thanks for this. I have been thinking about buying a good desk reference for next year, and this looks like it might just fit the bill :-)
