Similar feelings about this class. I'm having good luck with the E&E thus far. I have Burke this semester, so it could be that his classroom and supplement take the same path, but it has really helped me with the early personal property concepts like possession/finder's rights/bailment/gifts. My brief TLS research seemed to indicate that the property E&E was one of the more liked in the series.

Interesting, because my TLS research seemed to indicated that the property EE was not one of the better ones. I am using the Gilbert's outline (written by Krier and I'm using a book he co-authored so it made sense) + Understanding Property. Seems to be the consensus that these are TCR for property.

Understanding Property was pure gold.

Check out your syllabus though first. I was freaked out over future interests since everyone here fussed about it and wanted to get all the supplements on it and our professor ended up not even really covering it.

Maybe this is how I should ask this question.

Anyone else who really liked the Civ Pro and Torts supplements(EDIT: E & E)? If so, which property supplement did you find the most useful?

What casebook do you have? If it's Singer, he wrote a book called Introduction to Property that I found helpful.

I just realized how vague my question was. I meant the E and Es for Civ pro and Torts. Just wanted to see what people who liked those (as I did) thought was a good property supplement.

EDIT: I currently have the Gilberts, Emmanuel's and the E & E. Obviously I won't be using all of them but I'm trying to see which are good.

The Gilbert's looks good but unfortunately my professor is using his book so I'm not using a "standard" property book so it's not keyed exactly

that won't matter, the book is very clearly sectioned off by topic so I can't see how it would be that confusing

Many people on here swear by "understanding property." The E&E's are also pretty decent. In general though I think property is the toughest class to find a good supplement though. 1L property classes vary wildly depending on what the professor wants to focus on (IP, future interests, personal property, takings, zonings, easements...etc).

We are using the Dukeminier 7th edition case book....so basically understanding property is the book to get?

Same book and I picked up Gilbert's keyed to Krier (co-author of the book) as well as Understanding Property. Pretty much using the Gilbert's as a way to organize my outline, then using Understanding Property to fill-in the details.

Has anyone here used the Singer treatise linked below? I generally like everything I've read from this series, and I'm also using his casebook. Curious for some feedback.
