Yeah. Certain professors that use a lot of latin may threaten you that you should be using blackstone's dictionary (there is a free copy of an old edition available on one of the legal research system providers that you will have access to during lawschool if you really need it) but google really suffices.

Like the others said, you can Google it.

Also, once you get in, WestLaw gives you full access to Black's Law Dictionary. (Which is the best one, btw, if you want to be an over achiever and waste $60. haha)

Yeah don't waste money on a dictionary. I found that I was googling terms a lot during the first month or two of school. Eventually, you reach a point where you understand the terminology enough that you won't need one. I knew a few people that got to the second week or so, panicked and bought Black's. Two months later, they were never using it.

Are there any "Advice for Future Students" threads for part-time law students?

I'd be interested to read about how successful part-time students/grads structured their days and studying times while also working FT.

I'm glad someone resurrected this. It will most likely come in handy.

Reading it still not getting a good idea of whether HB or E&E are better? Or should I get both?

Also, if the libraries have them, should I just try to copy all the pages I need? Or is it just make more sense to buy them?

Starting 1L in the fall, looking at picking up some of the more commonly mentioned supplements. I know some may or may not be helpful depending on the individual professor, but a few (Chemerinsky's con law supplement, for example...I think Glannon for civ procedure, too?) seem to be specifically mentioned in all the 1L success threads. I'm not planning on actually reading them prior to starting school, but I figured I'd check Amazon periodically to see if any of them showed up for cheap.

Anyway, is this http://www.amazon.com/Constitutional-Law-Principles-Policies-Treatise/dp/0735598975 the Chemerinsky supplement everyone mentions? Because this shit is like 900 pages. Just doesn't seem like a "supplement" so much as a regular textbook, but maybe I'm doing it wrong.
