Go to class and find out their teaching style - is it straight black-letter law, or more case-oriented? From there you can figure out what will help with you. The Glannon E&E for Civ Pro is great, but as mentioned earlier it might not be all that helpful unless your prof teaches relatively BLL.

Thanks so much.......... do you think books are availabel by now? I'll be moved in on August 18th.........
If you buy them all at the bookstore, you'll pay around $1200. Let me show you this great thing called...................."the internet."


You have free Amazon Prime. Take advantage of it. Also, people have had your classes and your books before. Take advantage of them.


How do we get free Amazon Prime? I had it for a year last year because I was a student but it's saying I have to renew at $50 a year (which isn't that much, but I'd rather get it for free).

Brennan has taught contracts several times and people love him. Grove is visiting from William and Mary, and according to a friend there people love her, too.

This is the class of 2015 thread so you might get better responses in this thread

Just went onto Outlinedepot and found a Susan Grover who taught CivPro there at William & Mary. Howver, my schedule says "T. Grove" for CivPro......... are you sure we're taling about the same CivPro professor? Thanks for verifying.


You have the wrong person. This is our professor- http://law2.wm.edu/faculty/bios/fulltim ... hp?svr=law

hooray for embarrassingly awful customer service from Amazon.... simply trying to set up an Amazon Prime free membership and apparently my email address has already been used? I rather doubt that. They want a school photo ID... good luck with that at this point, guess they don't want my business.

Hey all, checking in here. Native Chicagoan (well, technically suburbs), just got in off the waitlist. If you all have any questions about 1990's Chicago Bulls-related minutia or THE place to scream for hot dogs at 2am, I am at your service!

Amazon Prime is awesome. I'm assuming you're trying to get the free six month trial with a student email address?

If they say your email address is already in use, there is a trick you can use for most sites (don't know if it works specifically with amazon though). Say your school email is northwesternorbust@nlaw.northwestern.edu. If you add northwesternorbust+amazon@nlaw.northwestern.edu, it will automatically redirect all of your emails to your normal northwesternorbust@nlaw.northwestern.edu inbox but most sites will recognize it as a completely different email address. Note you can add northwesternorbust+anything and it will work, just using amazon for this example.

Problem is, I've never typed this email address into anything. I think I'll take my business to a company a little more competent.

Can anyone tell me if there are Chicago-based meetups going on before school starts? Not in the facebook group.

"Not in the facebook group" as in you're not in the facebook group, or meetups other than the ones being planned in the facebook group?

There's at least one happy hour meetup per week. People are meeting at Public House at 4pm tomorrow.

Haha yes, that's less than clear. I mean I'm not in the facebook group, although if there are double-secret meetups going on those sound cool too. Thanks for the info.

Hey Everyone,

I only decided recently that I will be attending NU (got in off the waitlist) and am super excited. I read though all 82 pages of this thread before posting :shock: and I can safely say that this wasn't covered...

Anyone have any information on the Day of Public Servce - i.e. what it entails etc? I read that you need 50 hours before you graduate but I was unable to figure out exactly what exactly it is...

Thanks

ETA: Never mind - if you do the survey and check yes to either day of public service, it provides a very thorough explanation on the following page.

Does anybody remember if there was supposed to be a dress code for orientation? I thought I remembered reading something about business casual, but now I can't find it. I'm hoping there isn't, but it probably wouldn't be good to be the only person there in a t-shirt.
