CivPro E&E is good. It doesn't have MC questions and that's where I got hit hardest.


Hey Rotor what are MC questions?

Thanks.

Haha, and here I was thinking it was some complicated new, law-school exam format... :oops:

Thanks!

I haven't bought any supplements but I'm starting to get the impression that I'm in the minority. I'm trying to avoid the arms race mentality, but I keep hearing that it's important, so maybe I should bite the bullet.

Lots of people have the E&E for CivPro and I hear that's good, but what about a supplement keyed to the casebook? I see that Aspen and Legalines both have books for Hazard, Tait, et al (which I believe all 1L's are using). Did anyone have success with either of these?

CivPro E&E is good. It doesn't have MC questions and that's where I got hit hardest.

I personally don't like the legalines case briefs bc I think I would get lazy and only read the pre-filled briefs.

Remember: everyone learns in his/her own way. If supps work for you--great. If not, don't get caught up in the arms race. If you want to try before you buy, most are on reserve at the library.


Legalines are good for supplementing the casebook - meaning, read the case first and THEN read the legaline, just to see if you got what you were supposed to out of the case. Essentially, it's just a brief - so if you do a good job briefing and actually do briefs for every class on your own, then this is really a waste of money. I'd rather spend my money on Gilberts or an E&E, where rules are outlined clearly or concepts are broken down further, but that's just me.

Hi guys. I hope that break is treating you all well. Do you know around what date grades are released? Also, are they all released at the same time, or as soon as the professor posts them? Thanks!

They get posted as each prof is complete, with the following caveat from the BearFacts opening window:

Final Grades Grades are updated once daily at 8am. Grades submitted electronically for Spring 2010 are available for viewing under Current Term Grades on Bear Facts 24 hours after submission by instructors.

I dropped this class precisely for the 8:40 am reason. =)

I would try the IP E&E. I haven't used it myself, but I have had good experiences with E&Es in general. Hope that helps!

I know this is kind of a reach since the last post in this thread was over a year ago, but did anyone have Erin Murphy for Crim Law? It's her first year teaching at NYU and I'm trying to get my hands on old outlines / exams.

Would love you forever if you could tell me anything about her class or point me in the right direction.

EM last taught Crim in 2008--the year before c/o 2012 started. Doubt anyone here will be able to help.
