So your section is whatever section # they list for LRW, right?

Yes but sections have letter names. So section 01 of LRW is "Section A," then 02 was "Section B," etc.

Thanks soju :P

So just to clarify, my section #/letter is whatever is next to my LRW? For some of the courses I have a section # that is different from the one next to LRW. Does that just mean that my section and that section will be combined for that particular class?

Partially correct. In terms of figuring out your section, you just take the number of your LRW class and assign it the corresponding letter in the alphabet.

The section "numbers" though don't mean anything beyond that. They only exist for the class registration system to differentiate between one class being offered at two different times. So each 1L class will be either section 1 or section 2, but that has nothing to do with your Bigelow section. All that means is there are two of the same class offered and the registration system needs a way to tell them a part. Did I explain that in a way that makes sense?

Yes, thank you for explaining that far more succinctly/coherently than the question was worded :)

Can someone please kindly forward me the reading assignments for the bigelow section on Monday? I guess my name was not on the maillist and it takes them forever to fix it. THX!

How do we know which books we need for each professor?

I also have early morning classes. Does anyone remember a post describing some of the Chicago professors? I feel like I read something like that at some point on TLS. I'm curious what the word is on my profs!

Thanks! I think that was the one I was thinking of.... Unfortunately, only two of my profs are mentioned.

Which section are you in? An awesome 2L gave me a brief rundown on most of my profs, and I'd be happy to PM you the details.

This link is for the books, for those interested.

http://timeschedules.uchicago.edu/view. ... S&term=448

Only my contracts course has the book list set up yet.

FYI, ~same~ price for a new version on amazon as a used version from the bookstore.

I found that my books show up on BN. Question: anyone know what "Bookstore recommends" means? There are supplements recommended for a number of my classes, but I can't tell if it's the supplement chosen by the prof or if it's just some random supplement that the bookstore has decided they can get me to buy based on the course title.

I'm not sure. I'm not going to buy supplements until I know whether or not the prof him/herself is recommending one.
I just ordered the required books for Civ Pro and Elements on Amazon. I may get my other ones on Amazon as well.

Bookstore recommends seems to be just that... nothing to do with the prof (as far as I can tell).

My LRW section had required and recommended books that were not merely store recommended. I think it's just B&N trying to fool you into spending more money there.

Well jokes on you B&N because you almost made me spend extra on Amazon.

The bookstore says Writing a Legal Memo and the Bluebook are both required for my LRW.

I know we should be buying used books, but is anyone finding the lawanounce emails totally overwhelming? I feel like there are so many that I will probably end up pursuing none of them!
