Is there any way to purchase some of our textbooks before the quarter begins? I know we won't be told our professors until orientation, but I did see that, for example, the torts profs both use the same case book. At least, the Barnes and Noble link on the class schedules page suggested that they do. Are there any other books that I will definitely need? Could the listings change before the quarter begins? I know I'll get them eventually, but it would be kind of fun to poke around in them while I'm waiting for things to begin.
Please do not do this. You really just need to enjoy your last month before school starts and not worry about law school reading yet. We would tell you if reading ahead was a good use of your time, and it really isn't.
Plus, the cheapest way to get textbooks is usually to buy from upperclassmen who sell them on the listserv, which won't happen until right before classes. Otherwise you'll likely be overpaying.
