USE of Internet for studying?

Postby seriously???? » Fri Jan 28, 2011 7:54 pm

How often did everyone use the internet this past semester for the purposes of research and studying?

yeah, I hope I do not get banned for admitting that I am a OL, but I am curious. Do you use the internet a lot, or very little?
I am a bit detached from the internet world, and just wondering how important it is in law school.

First: guard, tackle, or center?

Second: A typical law school syllabus contains a list of case names that you just Google and hope that you can get accurate case briefs for.

It depends what kind of course you're talking about. For the substantive courses, you'll probably be using a case book with very little internet research. For Legal Research and Writing, you'll be doing a ton of research on the internet. Other courses that might involve a lot of research are Brief Writing, seminars (that require a paper), or some other skills courses.

You can get good briefs from Westlaw. I use the Westlaw briefs and head notes to create my outlines.

Best briefs are on Lawnix.com if they have that case.

Westlaw.com will become your best friend in law school, especially as a 2L and 3L.

That said, GTFO 0L.
