I have a friend who uses that program. She swears by it as she never carries her casebook with her anywhere.

I have this. It has almost any brief the prof can throw at you. Some of my profs hand out supplemental cases not in the casebook. I can always find these in ROM law. The bad part is that the "briefs" are way too long. Some of them seem almost as long as the opinion. There is way too much analysis of every detail rather than the one aspect of the case that landed it in the casebook. If called on, you can't find answers quick enough. I bought the paper version of canned briefs for my classes that are more heavy into Socratic. They're much more concise. You can even substitute them for reading the cases (I do). I even look better than classmates when called on, because I didn't get bogged down in 10 pages of Cardozo's verbal masterbation. I advise against the ROMlaw.

RUQRU wrote:I came across this on another web site. It is a computer based product called ROM Law. You can Google it to find their site if you wish. They describe the product as:

"get over 22,000 Computer Casebriefs. Students with our Casebriefs spend all their time mastering law school exam writing skills... [it comes with] the 720 Series™ Flash Cards, M.A.D.™ Law Outlines, Q&A, and Reference Materials to memorize and master the application of the law. Get Ready for law school exams from the first day of class."

Depending on how much of their stuff you buy it costs less the $150.00. They say their briefs are computer generated. They also have something called Superbriefs. Some of the casebriefs include a section called "Cases that cite this case:" This gives a snapshot of the most relevant and important cases which cite the case being briefed.

They also sell a 167,000 word "Dean’s Law Dictionary" and all the Law School Exam Writing books made by Study Partner™

So, does anyone use it? Is it any good? Worth the money?

Given the scope of what they offer and the low price I thought I would find some reviews of this product. But a search of TLS came up empty. That makes you wonder...


Blatant ROM law trolling

This sounds wayyyy too good to be true...and how would this play into "open book" exams? I have a feeling that looking this up during an exam would not be allowed, which would mean you'd probably want to work from your casebook during the semester so that it is notated and everything right?

This is coming from the 0L who just wants a point in the right direction. :D

BAHAHAHAHA. Oh, 0L, you have much to learn. This would be useless on a law school exam, even in the unlikely event it did what it purported to do as well as it purported to do it.

You 0Ls so CRAZY.
