audio supplements

Postby portaprokoss » Thu Dec 22, 2011 9:22 pm

The Freer and Miller audio lectures for Civ Pro are great. If you have Civ Pro you should get them both. I also thought that the torts one by Finz was excellent. I'd recommend the newest version of Miller, not the one that's available as a torrent. But I'd recommend the older torts; the one with just Finz, not Finz and Levine.

Next semester I have Crim, Contracts, and Con Law. Could someone recommend audio lectures for any of these courses?



Generally, here are the print supplements that I liked, in case you're looking for any of these classes.

Torts Good (in order of usefulness): Finz audio lecture, Glannon's, Dobbs Hornbook, Crunchtime, The Forms and Functions of Tort Law
Torts Bad: Gilbert Torts Outline, Concise Restatement of Torts

Civ Pro Good (in order of usefulness): Miller Audio, Freer Audio, Glannon's Civ Pro, Freer Civ Pro Book (Aspen publishers)
Civ Pro Bad: Friedenthal Hornbook (anything that's not in Freer will be too detailed to get down on a timed exam), Emanuel Civ Pro Outline

Property Good (in order of usefulness): Understanding Property--Sprankling, Estates in Land & Future Interests: A Step by Step Guide, Aspen Treatise--Singer, Glannon Guide to Property--Learning Through Multiple Choice, Siegel's Property--Essay and Multiple-Choice Questions and Answers
Property Bad: Gilbert Property Outline (Krier)

Hope that helps. If anyone could recommend supplements for Crim., Contracts, or Con Law that would be great. I especially like supplements with good practice problems.]

I thought Sum & Substance for Con Law (Professor Cheh) was really good. More comprehensive than the Barbri version.

I liked the Sum & Substance (Whaley) for K. But we used his casebook, so it fit perfectly. I wasn't a huge fan of the Con Law S&S, and of course that changes pretty fast in some areas, so it's only really useful for the historical stuff.

I also got something out of the PR S&S (Dzienkowski), but he was my prof, so it was basically like being able to re-listen to the class; and Goode's S&S on Evidence was good. I didn't end up taking evidence, but I listened to it just once casually between finals and graduation and evidence ended up being one of my strongest Bar subjects.

I have the following audio supplements for sale:

Criminal Law (Dressler 4th edition)
Property (Juergensmeyer 3rd edition)
Civ Pro (Miller 6th edition)
Torts (Finz 4r edition)

They helped me a lot 1L year, and I would highly recommend using them throughout the year. PM me if interested.
