All the model answers only use Darby, Lopez, Morrison, and Raich (+Wickard). Same goes for all the substantive due process + economic regulation cases. The model answers only use Lee Optical to dismiss SDP objections.


If I may vent, at least your professors gave you model answers. I have a grand total of four sample exams from my professors, and not one answer. This is the height of frustration.


Sorry. That's awful. I don't know what I would do without model answers...

Good night everyone.


I follow instructions carefully, and really think about what professors focused on in class. I also rely on GTM and the LEEWS manual, but I learn best by example, and it would be so much easier if they gave us model answers. No one else has them either, though, so there is that. I've been reading other model answers for inspiration. Is there anything else I can do? I need a pair of As.

'night!

Did you hunt around for model answers from other professors? I've been doing that, but I definitely wish every professor had them on file.

Yeah, I did. I bought the Siegel's books and grabbed model answers from some of the exams posted in the sticky here. The ones from American were the most useful to me.

Cool, I'll look at the American ones. I've been doing the CrunchTime problems as well. The biggest issue is our policy question in property. How did you handle policy questions?

Siegel? Which one? Or both? Or are there Siegels I don't know about?
