Post-it flags in casebook

Postby kekepania » Sun Aug 19, 2012 2:27 am

I have seen many students with casebooks that have an abundance of post-it flags on the pages. What is the purpose of using flags?

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.
