She updated her book in the offseason, so this is an old edition. Also, her publisher apparently binds books with spit and prayer, so the covers are coming off of ALL of these books. Anyway, I'd bet very few of the cases change in the update (this edition is copyright 2010), and you could probably get away easily enough with the older edition. You can always buy the new one later if you change your mind.



I bet the new one has even more mistakes!


Do you ever stop stalking me? It's a tough call on the property book. On the one hand, she hired several good people to help her revise it over the summer. On the other hand, she's still involved. That probably tips it against improvement and toward greater crap.

So, I received a question via PM, here it is for everyone else:

Question: Where and how do I print things from my laptop in the law library?

To print in the library, you'll have to connect your laptop to the library's computer lab printer. That printer is located on the third floor, almost directly above the front desk. Ask anyone where the library computer lab is and they'll point you in the right direction.

To connect to the library printer network, you'll need to download and run the batch file from the library's website at:

--LinkRemoved--

It's only a couple of steps, and there's a lovely illustrated guide for your particular operating system on that page.

Then, the library printers will appear in your available printers on all the programs on your computer. You just select that printer, print, then walk to the computer lab printers. Your document will not print until you go to the printer and use the keypad there to enter your Student ID and password (case sensitive). Then, you can print all the documents you've sent to the printer since the last time you logged in on the keypad, or just the ones that you want.

Also, on books. First of all, the best place to buy them is from me.

More importantly, I have found that the SMU bookstore has been VERY competitive on USED prices. They don't always have used copies, but I have saved ten or twenty bucks on most of my used big ticket books buying them from SMU Barnes & Noble instead of Amazon or Half. Everyone's got a different opinion on how to do it, but for my money (and time), the SMU bookstore is worth a look. Barnesandnoble.com's textbook section appears to have pretty good new prices, as well. There are almost certainly some books you will HAVE to buy new since they'll be new editions.

Also, the price of the Legal Writing & Other Lawyering Skills book on Amazon / Half is total bullshit.

So I got my old coffee table all of the way here and now I hate it in my apt. It's the Ikea Lack coffee table in black. There's a bit of bubbling on top, but nothing too terrible.
Does anyone here want it? I'm listing it on CL but I'll seriously just give it to any of you. Plus I live right across the street from campus so you can come get it after orientation today! Let me know...

I'm confused- how many SMU Law alums are CEO's of Fortune 50 companies?

Basically, all I learned from orientation today is that SMU is almost as good as, if not better than, Harvard. Did I get that right?

I got sick in the middle of Dean Attanasio's lecture on the 5 themes of American law. Not because of his lecture, of course, but regardless, is there any incredibly important information that I missed the rest of that 2nd day of orientation?

This legal writing class seems really interesting and doesn't take up a disproportionate amount of time at all...

Put it this way: she didn't exactly light up the room with enthusiasm on the first day of class

I can't imagine any of the LRWA lighting up a room. It's kind of a miserable job, don't you think?

I feel a bit like I'm in that Reese Witherspoon movie, "Election." I'm just waiting for Tracy Flick to storm through here tearing down posters.
