You need your cases to extract the BLL. In my case, getting criminal law down requires reading the cases or at least understanding the rule, a few smudges of facts, and maybe the court's rationale behind its holding.
Of course, because this is only week one, a lot of the cases don't necessarily work together to create one huge pie of rules. Some professors may be assigning cases that are just general and meant to get your feet wet.
I'm just a little worried about the prof who talks about tangential/theoretical stuff which I've been told time and again he just cold-calls for but never tests on.
I can get the BLL from the cases. But when I search the case on Lexis to get the topic, then read in the supplements about that topic, I get the BLL. and i feel like i get more out of the process when using supplements.
maybe it's to each their own. but i like to hear other's methods.
After you find the case on Lexis, where do you see the topic?
