when you guys say your outlines are done, how exactly are you dealing with stuff you haven't covered yet?
For example, in my civ pro class, all that we've covered so far is the steps of trial (pleadings, discovery, summary judgment, appeals, and trial) and personal jurisdiction.
We still haven't even touched SM juris., Erie doctrine, joinder, whatever else confusing there is in civ pro. Am I supposed to just read ahead and outline the rest of the semester's materials even though we haven't covered everything, and just use supplements when I don't understand the reading on my own?
My outlines are basically up to date with the class but I don't know how I can start practice testing without knowing the rest of the materials
Last hurrah this weekend and then the craziness begins
I read ahead in the class and then read 2-3 supplements for each class and made an outline off of those notes and older outlines I got from 2Ls
during class, if the professors says something that isn't completely obvious to me about a subject, I add it directly to the outline.
with that said, 2 outlines done out of 3 since the third didn't give syllabus and posts the readings only a week in advance. i've been doing practice hypos/exams since the beginning of the semester, so now it's just time to work on memorization of the bll/policy and keep on doing practice problems. i've also been practicing my typing for 30 min a day, which i feel is my biggest weakness.
I don't see any change in my schedule though with regards to putting in more hours, which is nice
