Supplements for Property/Con Law

Postby jd20132013 » Thu Jan 05, 2012 4:00 pm

Taking these two and Evidence next semester. Heard nothing but good things about Evidence E & E so I'll get that.

But I've heard conflicting things about the others, especially property. I know Chemerinsky is the go-to for Con Law but we're using the Stone casebook. Still Chemerinsky? I have the E & E but I've heard its bad(got it from a friend).

And Property I've heard a bunch of things(I seem to hear a lot that the E &E is terrible). I have the Gilbert Law Summary which I got from the same friend but I've never used one of those so I was unsure.

Tips?

I'm a huge fan of Understanding Property; Students Guide to Land and Future Interests is also pretty solid for those chapters

Chemerinsky is ALWAYS the credited response. Doesn't matter which casebook you're using. Trust me on this one.

I second the recommendation for Understanding Property -- I found it really helpful.

I'll look into Understanding Property. There seem to be multiple "Chemerinsky" Con law books...what's the full name of the credited supplement? is this it

Understanding Property has rave reviews across the board, but I'm told it doesn't have hypos? That's something I definitely need for practice. I'm willing to buy Understanding Property + something else if necessary

If you need problems on estates and future interests, there are two supplements that focus on that stuff: one by Edwards and another by Makdisi (I think, this is off the top of my head); don't forget to use CALI lessons, too. If you need problems on other stuff, like zoning, takings, etc., I found the E&E to be pretty good.

For learning the material, Estates in Land & Future Interests is excellent but a little high at about 40. You might just want to check it out of the library.

For hypos I agree with Acing Property and also Siegle's Property. You can get them used fairly cheap.
