Burn-out is real and the going gets tough at the end of the second semester of your 1L year. In a few short months, the clock will read 3:00am and your face will be buried in a casebook or supplement. There's no need to rush it.

However, there's little value reading ahead when you don't have a syllabus or otherwise have any idea what to read. Sure, you could take a scatter-shot approach and just read entire supplements, but that's such a waste of time and I doubt most people would be able to retain and recall all that information when it counts (months from now).

What about reading over outlines from your school's outline bank for the specific professor?
