Contracts, Crim law, and Con law

Postby RP1983 » Wed Dec 01, 2010 2:06 am

I am taking these three courses next semester. Right now, I find Torts the most interesting and easiest (not sure if there is a relation here lol). For those 2Ls and 3Ls or grads, which courses are similar to Torts. By contrast, I find property the most boring, and Civ Pro the hardest.

im taking contracts/crim/civ pro/torts this semester

i'd say crim law and torts are semi-similar, except that instead of a bunch of random judge-made tests and restatements, you compare fact patterns to elements of a statute. If your prof is like mine, on the final they will give you multiple pages of statute to work off of, so you don't have to worry about memorizing a bunch of contradictory tests and case law. I thank god that he does this and I don't have to waste time memorizing differences between MPC and Common Law. Professor is pretty clear that doing either of these is completely useless, since in the real world you have statutes to work off of

prob more policy considerations in criminal law, way more theory
