There is that one book that sometimes gets assigned for Elements, it is a paperback with a guy's leg and briefcase on it. Goes over lots of basic law & econ stuff. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

The Legal Analyst?


Yeah, that's it. Looking at my copy right now... It's actually fairly interesting I think. Written by a former graduate of the law school. Same Farnsworth who is dean of UT and co-wrote my torts book.

YES. Thank you. That was driving me crazy.

The Legal Analyst was helpful for me with a lot of Levmore's stuff. Don't like stress yourself out with it but have it handy and skim it for anything that seems relevant. Levmore tends to tell you some random crazy versions of law and econ concepts that aren't actually that complicated. The Legal Analyst stuff, specifically the section on incentives, is like the actually-readable version.

I also loved Posner's contracts supplement.

Does anyone have outlines from Crim Law with Lakier, or know anyone who had Lakier for Crim Law II? I guess she's new to teaching it, because there's only the one exam of hers from last year.

She's done it for two years, they don't put the evals for the first year a prof teaches up online.

You might look for any crim outline for her, as last year she taught Crim I and Crim II (so they might have put both of the outlines together)

I had her but not sure I have an outline. I'll scrounge around.
