"Issue Roadmap" outline?

Postby NeighborGuy » Wed Oct 26, 2011 9:19 pm

I'm thinking that I want to do a "sub-outline" for Property and maybe Torts. This outline would be a bare-bones "roadmap" of law issues with general policy reasons and counterarguments for each fork. Kind of like an issue checklist, but expanded in great detail. (BTW, my exams are closed book, so I'm not worried about ease of use as a reference.)

Not entirely sure how I want to go about formatting and organizing it though. Is anyone aware of an outline like this available somewhere on the interwebz that I could get ideas from?

I was thinking of doing the same thing. My torts exam is open book though, which I feel like this would be a lot more helpful for, for the ease of identifying argument/counterarguments. But if you can memorize it, I think it would help tremendously. I have a barebones torts checklist now. But want to put defenses/ counterarguments under each topic. My plan is to have my full outline, just if I need to reference something real specific and something like what you are explaining.

I have one that I made for torts last year (maybe property, I can check). PM me and I can e-mail it to you, if you want.

I'm not sure if it's what you're looking for; it's a 2-3 page checklist of stuff to look for on each question to make sure that you've thought of every possible issue.
