The ones I see use them to mark each case so they can quickly flip to that case if needed. For me, I used them in two ways. First, I used one flag as a bookmark that would mark where we left off in class. Second, I used them to tab statutory supplements, such as the Rules of Civil Procedure.

Back in the day, I used them for open note exams. I was not an outliner or briefer. I read the cases and wrote extensively in the margins. I would tab my casebook so that I could quickly get to the section I needed during an exam.
