Headed to Southwestern this fall- Advice on these teachers?

Postby thepaperchase » Thu Jun 21, 2018 12:32 pm

Hi all,

As the title says, I just wanted to know if any 2L, 3L's, or alum from Southwestern in LA has any input/advice/recommendations/possible outlines/supplements geared toward these teachers. FYI already checked Rate my professor's but looking for anything more specific if anyone is willing to chim in. Also, my interest would be trial work (personal injury, employment matters) to give you an idea. I know this is very question specific so anything is appreciative, thank you very much.

Waisman- Contracts I

1- google outline depot
2- buy the most updated/complete outline for each of those professors
3- DON'T READ THE CASES
4- thoroughly comb through those outlines and edit them based on the professor's lecture
5- re-review your outlines 6-7 times, each time condensing them little by little
6- by exam time, you should have everything near-memorized.
7- ace your exams
8- transfer.

Don’t go. Aren’t they under Aba sanctions and likely to be shut down? It’s a dumpster fire. Don’t spend a dollar going there

I'm pretty sure they're not despite them being unranked

@estefanchanning

1) why not read the cases?

2) Did you go to SW?
