E&E

Postby Okie25 » Tue Jan 27, 2015 2:30 pm

I'm thinking about skimming through some of the E&E's before school starts just to get a general overview of the subjects. Do I need to get the latest edition for each subject? Also are the E&E's the best books for this or are there other books that would do the job? I'm not trying to study the material, just want an overview so I have some idea of what the subject is. Thanks

Also I saw that the latest edition of torts came out in 2010, anyone know if there's a new edition coming out anytime soon

I generally think this is a waste of time - just read Getting to Maybe and relax. Wikipedia for general overviews if you must.
But if you insist on doing this...

Get the newest edition:
- Con Law
- Admin
- Corporations

Get a somewhat recent edition:
- Civ Pro
- Crim

Get any old edition:
- Contracts
- Property

Don't buy a supplement:
- Legislation
- Torts

There's already another thread for "best supplements," should be able to find it with a search. The only ones I thought were particularly outstanding must-haves were Chemerinsky's Con Law and Glannon's Civ Pro (both the E&E and the Glannon Guide).

Thanks for the info, it looks like a lot of the old threads have been archived and are no longer accessible.

E&E's are a waste of time because they are too basic. If you want to waste your summer away, go with hornbooks. E&E's are best used around exam time when shit's hit the fan and you can't close your mouth.
