Online Case Summaries

Postby Chris Peloso » Mon Jan 22, 2007 9:38 pm

Because I apparently have way too much time on my hands, I spent part of Xmas break transcribing all the case summaries I wrote for class last semester into a web site.

so far, it's only got Civil Procedure, Contracts, and Constitutional Law 1, but more classes will be added as I take them.

Here's the URL:

http://www.invispress.com/law

It's free. No popups.

Wow! I'm impressed! I even read the FAQs... I should probably find a more productive way to spend my time too! :lol:

This is really great. I can't thank you enough for putting all your time and efforts in this; I will def. use your summaries (God knows I need every extra supplemental info. I can get my hands on...)

Thanks again.

Nifty. It's crazy to look at other outlines from others courses - the material and method of teaching it can be so different. Even the same cases, the professors are trying to illustrate different areas of the law.

Thanks!

Some of my law school buddies and I enjoy Mike Shecket's website. He's posted his notes and outlines.

Yea mike's stuff is awesome. If you have the same book as him, you could get by not even going to class and just reading his notes/briefs.

Just to bump this for some of the new 1Ls.

I've added Constitutional Law II and International Law. I also went back and completely rewrote most of the cases from Constitutional Law I since I wasn't happy with the way they were originally done. so now it's got:

Administrative Law
Civil Procedure
Constitutional Law I
Constitutional Law II
Contracts
Criminal Justice (aka Criminal Procedure)
Criminal Law
Decedent's Estates (aka Wills & Trusts)
Evidence
Environmental Law
Family Law
International Law
Lawmaking (aka Statutory Interpretation)
Professional Responsibility
Property
Torts

Thanks for your site; I partially owe my A in Con Law to your notes. They saved me a lot of time.

Bookmarked. Thank you for sharing; these will be an excellent guide to my own summaries. :D

By the way, you seem like one of the coolest people in the world: nuclear engineer, blogger, comic strip writer, frustrated and self-deprecating novelist, magnanimous law student, and intelligence analyst. You rock.

I chuckled at this one.

Once again, bumping this thread for the new 1Ls.

And also, the site now contains cases for Tax Law I, and Natural Resources Law (aka Federal Land Use).

If you like the site, tell a friend. It gets lots of hits, but 99% of those hits are coming from google, very few people have mentioned in their blog/twitter/facebook/etc. Impress your friends by being one of the first to talk about it!

Bless you. Just in time for my first cold call yesterday, used it to supplement my own notes and made it out alive!
