I like AA. For a bunch of T15 law nerds, they are all so gorgeous that they give Brad Pitt competition and they are all partners in firms. Awesome!


AA has an important role to play in our world. Sometimes, you just need to hear a bunch of grown men being really, really horrible to one another.

I'm guessing most material in law school is far denser than the stuff found in the E&E's. I must say though that I was pleasantly surprised how light a read the first chapter was. Am I the only one who feels this way?

Glannon is a magic man. He can make the most dry material seem interesting. As long as you're reading it to satisfy your intellectual curosity, then go for it. But if you're highlighting and taking notes, then fuck you.

IMO, issue spotting and applying the law are easy if you can truly "master" the law. Not just memorize everything and slowly regurgitate it after a few seconds of thought... but a fluency in the law that comes from internalizing everything.

I would think it's similar to reading a book about a language, learning the grammar and amassing a huge vocabulary, but being unable to keep pace with a fluent speaker simply because you're incapable of processing the vast amount of knowledge you have. Once you really internalize legal concepts and BLL, applying the law should become a simple(r) matter. Issue spotting is a derivative of this since once you have a firm grasp of the ins-and-outs of the law you can see where things are in dispute and can argue both sides by taking from case law, policy, statutes, codes etc.
