For those who have Albright, I heard this will be only her second year teaching the course and thus, she relies quite heavily on these. In fact, I think she's the only one to require the E&E.Torts:
The Forms and Function of Tort Law (Abraham)
Understanding Torts (Lexis Nexis)
I probably could get by w/pairing the E&E w/only one of the latter but they are each under 400 pages. Daico, I looked at the Dobbs book (I think you have Anderson as well) but it seems awfully large. Yet, I heard he questions
a lot on specific details (as opposed to larger themes/policy issues) but doesn't focus
on the black-letter stuff as much in lecture. Thus, the Dobbs book may be a good reference. However, detailed class notes, a solid commercial outline, and an occasional visit to Dobbs in the library may do the same trick. Contracts:
Concepts and Case Analysis in the Law of Contracts (Chirelstein)
I've heard this is especially good for Rau (although it's generally recommended on TLS). I'm also debating the E&E and the Understanding Contracts (Lexis Nexis). I have heard mixed opinions regarding the former, but these may be relative critiques (i.e. pinning it against the Glannon E&E's, specifically his CivPro).
For those other (non-fall classes for me)
I got nothing. E&E for shits and giggles?
