Help me pick out my supplements.

Postby OneEl14 » Mon Sep 05, 2011 5:40 pm

I have the E&E's for all my classes (got them from an upperclassman), so please don't recommend those. Also, assume that i'm the type of person that will learn best from supplements rather than the casebook.

Torts: No casebook.
Civ Pro: Friedenthal, Miller, Sexton,Hershkoff Casebook
Property: Singer Casebook
Legislation & Regulation: Strauss, Rakoff, Farina Casebook
LRW: No casebook

Do people generally use any supplementation for LRW? I'd guess not but i'm not quite sure. Thanks in advance for any advice.

Don't think of it as "Which supplement is best for this casebook," think of it as "Which supplement is best for this professor." Professors may use the same casebook but they are likely to emphasize different cases and different areas of the course. Ask around at your school.

Disclaimer: I'm also a 1L, but this is the general sentiment I've read a thousand times over on TLS.

Freer on Civ Pro is awesome. The Singer property supplement is good, but is super lengthy.

Here is a short course on torts that may help. E&E is probably all you need

--LinkRemoved--

For Civ Pro either the Glannon Guide or Freer

For Property the

Exam Pro on Property

is good exam prep and you can buy it cheap used.

For Legal writing probably the best is

The Redbook: A Manual on Legal Style
