This would be great



I actually looked through them all. It wasn't worth it. Just a lot of threads dealing with Law School Confidential reviews, what cases to read as a 0L, question about canned briefs, usefulness of study groups, advice from 2Ls to 1Ls, and what books to read as a 0L. Wasn't worth it to repost in my mind since the info is constantly repeated on this forum. Not only that, with the archive it would save the 1st page of the thread, but if you wanted to read the 2nd or 3rd page or any other page for that matter, it would not load.

Is the general consensus primers are useless for 0Ls?

Also, besides CivPro and Constitutional Law I, can the remainder of the series come from a prior edition?

And yes to your second question, obviously depending on your prof.

+1. Pretty much a waste of time as a 0L. My Civ Pro class doesn't cover any jurisdiction stuff until next semester. It would have been a complete waste of time to read "Erie Made Easy" back in July.

I agree 0Ls should not bother checking out primers. Much better use of their time, like traveling the world and saving the children and what not.

Yet, the fact that my LSAT didn't end up having any rare games on it does not mean that preparing for those games was pointless.

It basically does the citation formatting for you.

Hello!

I was recently admitted to law school and was feeling very excited about starting school. However after doing my own research, and reviewing my application, I realized I incorrectly omitted an expunged arrest for possession of less than 2.5 for weed. I know it was careless and stupid of me for not reading closely, however not that I've caught the mistake, I'm very worried the law school might rescind my offer after notifying them. Anyone have an advice about how to handle it? Charges were dropped immediately, but like I said it was an expunged arrest that I didn't report, and I want to take care of it now before the year starts.

0L so get a second opinion BUT... I would disclose immediately. It would be better to have your offer rescinded rather than spending money on an education you can't use because the Bar won't admit you. Anxious and shitty situation for you but I would bite the bullet and alert the admissions staff ASAP so you can work through the issue.
