The booklist is already available, but pointless until we know which section (some classes have the same book no matter the section, others have different books per section)

Hmmm the bluebook 19th edition is selling for 170 and the 18th edition is selling for 20 dollars. anyone know if they are any different?

Edit: Nevermind, Amazon listed some absurd price, it's really only 30 dollars

I think one of the lawyering profs has giant warnings on the book list about not buying the previous version.

At first I thought you made a typographic error when you wrote $170 for the Bluebook.

Then I found what you found online and I LOL'd. I'm not sure what is up with Amazon, but that is definitely not the price. The Bluebook costs something like $15-$30 new at the bookstore here, and I'm sure you if look again online you can find it similarly priced.

That being said: get the most recent edition. It hasn't changed that much [1], but it's worth the additional $10 or whatever to have the peace of mind that comes with possessing the correct rules :p

[1] For changes enumerated, see --LinkRemoved--

Oh, for some reason it's much cheaper on the link the professor recommended. It's only 30 there. Btw, if anyone is interested, the booklists for civil procedure and contracts are pretty uniform. Lawyering is too except the books seem to be missing for one of the professors.

Part of me hopes that the Amazon marketplace seller listing it for $170 just made a mistake with the ISBN. Then again people are selling iPads on there for $800 when you can pay it from Apple for $600. Would make sense if they were selling overseas, but the sellers list it as US sales only.

Ill make a league and send you guys invites. PM me your information. Anyone have a preference between yahoo and espn? Also, the season starts on the 9th, so we could draft the weekend before (september 4th is a saturday and september 5th is a sunday). What time should I set it for?

ESPN's is so much better than Yahoo's it's not even close. As far as time goes, Sunday would probably be best in the afternoon in my opinion. PM'ing you.

Ok, we can do ESPN. I'll set it for sunday afternoon unless anyone objects. I'll give people a few more days to see this thread and let me know if they are interested. If I get enough responses, I probably will create the league on monday.

Just FYI ithaca car share is pretty great if you don't have a car, http://ithacacarshare.com/. There's a discount for cornell students (the membership is like $50/year), and honestly it's cheaper than actually owning a car.

They also have a pickup-truck if you ever need to haul stuff.
