Supplement Suggestions

Postby nelaw2010 » Mon Sep 05, 2011 1:34 pm

1L looking for advice regarding supplements for the following classes/casebooks (I have read all the relevant post, just looking for specific advice).

Criminal Law: We use Criminal Law 2nd Edition (Bonnie, Coughlin, Low). My professor is policy orientated. I already bought Dressler's Understanding Criminal Law. Any suggestions for a good supplement that is policy focused?

Torts: We use The Torts Process 7th Edition (Henderson, Pearson). Professor seems to focus on BLL, then looks at cases. I already purchased E&E and CrunchTime. Anything else?

I'm not as worried about Torts as I am about Criminal Law. Dressler is good, but I want to make sure that I really understand the policy considerations behind the law/court rulings.

I sincerely appreciate all advice!

What are some good hornbooks people would recommend? I know Chemerinsky's (sp?) Con. Law is recommended. What else?

I don't think that you need anything else for torts. There are plenty of old practice exams and model answers around. But

Acing Torts

if you must

for criminal law you already have the best one but you can also pick up the E&E fairly cheap.

Are supplements crucial? I feel like I'm already gleaning enough information from the cases and the lectures. Am I doing it wrong?

I think this is unique for every person. For me, it definitely helps to follow the LEEWS/GGG method:
viewtopic.php?f=3&t=73678&start=25

It seems to be working, but perhaps I'll get totally fucked come exam time. This method saves so much time, that I almost feel guilty for doing it.

Has anyone out there tried the above method???? Does it work? Am I headed for trouble?
