Hey guys. Have a question. I am caught up on my outlining in Civil Procedure, but I want to finishing outlining the semester this week. Should I read ahead and outline, using an A outline? The outline I have includes the professor's nuances. Or should I outline from the E&E and incorporate in-class discussion as the semester moves?

This. Would love some con law outlines up in this bitch. A bare-bones (almost typed bareback? What the hell) outline to keep me company during dates with Chemerinsky would be lovely.

yea, i am only interested in what to do with a fact pattern, how I am gonna mechanically proceed through it. i had great attack outlines/flow charts for Erie/Personal Jurisdiction, because on the exam you can just effortlessly go thru the steps and their application.

This isn't directly related to what you guys are saying, but I'm thinking about pre-writing some answers/rule statements for con law based on the 4-5 topics I expect are mostly likely to come up on my exam. I pre-wrote a lot of stuff for civ pro last semester, and that ended up being my best grade. Plus, my con law final is going to be word limited, so if I can find efficient ways to write rule statements and w/e ahead of time, it could definitely give me more words for my analysis. Anyone pre-write for con law last semester?

This would be great. If you find something / come up with something, lemme know (and vice versa of course).

In other news, took a 3 hour nap this afternoon. successkid.jpg

I don't know why I included this shit in my preliminary outline for con law.... but seeing as how Marbury v. Madison is probably not even going to be relevant for the exam, I can remove all the mandamus bullshit and just leave the core BLL right?

Considering none of us have Bobbit, I think you're safe.

I need your advice. There are no good outlines for my civ pro class, so I'm making mine from scratch. I've put about a day into copying the parts of the Crunchtime book to use as the basis of my outline. However, I'm getting the impression that using the Acing Civ Pro book as an outline would be a better idea. I could use the main parts as my outline, and use the mini-checklists as my attack outline.

Thoughts? Is this a good plan?


outline Freer.
