There seems to be no middle ground with Con Law. I hated it the most out of all the 1L courses. Even Civ Pro>> Con Law.

I didn't use supplements, but I heard the Emanuel's Law Outlines:Constitutional Law is good.

To echo fortissimo, am I the only one who thinks that the Emmanuels Outline on Conlaw is absolutely golden?

Yup.

I am not ignoring the discussion on Chemerinsky-that has been explored to death as the #1 hornbook on the subject.
However, having read almost the entire Chemerinsky text, and now running thru Emmanuels, I find Emmanuels to be pretty solid-I was just commenting.

Count me in as disappointed by the Chemerinsky so far. It seems to flit around on the surface of issues, and often just lists case holdings and quotes certain justices.

Have you looked at Emmanuels?

Nope. I've checked out the Gilbert in the bookstore because it's written by my casebook author (Chopin). Looked decent. But my professor is far from the ordinary ConLaw professor, it seems.

Do you have a review of the Emanuel?

Ive spoken to 3 2L's at my school, all of whom highly recommended Emmanuels and said it was the only reason they got A's.
All the Amazon reviews are extremely positive:
