The E&E.

I already put this in the OP, but the E&E is super awesome. I second Dique.

Can anyone corroborate this? Is it better than the E&E

GOOD SUPPLEMENTS

Federal Income Tax
Chirelstein http://www.amazon.com/Federal-Income-Ta ... supplement
Also the Income Tax Map http://www.amazon.com/Birds-Eye-Taxatio ... me+tax+map

Trademark
Lind http://www.amazon.com/Trademark-Law-Rob ... aw+outline I did not have to read a single case from the casebook to get A+!

Federal Evidence
Merritt's Casebook is so easy to read that students not assigned this casebook should get it instead anything else (including what ever casebook they are assigned) http://www.amazon.com/Learning-Evidence ... l+evidence

BAD SUPPLEMENTS

Criminal Procedure
Emanuel Law Outlines (gives TOO much info)

Crim Pro recommendations?


Dressler's Understanding Criminal Procedure is really comprehensive and good. Really great at breaking down some of the more difficult parts of criminal procedure and ties in a lot of policy for more theoretical professors. I've heard people say that their profs recommended it for anyone who needed an outside resource. Also, I'm pretty sure that there were only a couple of cases I read in class that weren't discussed in the hornbook, so it's a good resource if you can't figure out the significance of a particular case.

For secured, use Mastering Secured Transactions and Gilbert's (but especially Mastering).

I thought the E&E was alright. The Sum and Substance audio CDs were great, in my opinion.

Anyone have any suggestions for an Immigration Law supplement? We are using Aleinikoff's "Immigration and Citizenship" casebook...

Lots of people suggest chirelstein, but I didn't find it very useful. I liked the E&E.

ditto on that assessment of chirelstein. i found the remedies section to be particularly goood as well as the 2-3 pages on breach when it makes sense (i already forget the term).

My fellow supplement mavens:

I got the 5th ed. of Dressler's Understanding Crim. (2010 I think) but there is a new 6th ed. Did anything major happen in Criminal law in the intervening years? Should I go out and get this new edition or what?

Communications / Media Law? I've only seen the nutshell and the Zuckman treatise (which seems like overkill).

Bump for question.

Taking a course on complex litigation (class actions, overlapping litigation, MMTJA/AWA/AIA, etc.), and really having trouble finding any type of supplement that is relevant. Any suggestions?

Likewise. I like Acing Contracts. But it's still early in the semester, so who knows.

Can anyone recommend audio other than Whaley's for contracts? I'm a big fan of Sum & Substance - civ pro, torts, and con law are all great. But this guy is seriously terrible - he goes too fast and doesn't break it down.

I echo the E&E. Thing that helped me most though wasn't supps but looking very closely at the Rest. and UCC and seeing how they matched up or differed.
