Actually I'm just giving this away. PM me if you want it.

Speaking of giving away books, if anyone wants a ton of outdated casebooks (like a ton) to sell, burn, whatever, PM me. I just want them gone.

My mentor is a 3L.

I'm going to laugh so hard if it's Arbiter.

I can neither confirm nor deny that I am your mentor.

Anyone selling a clicker ? Do people typically sell those once the semester begins? Clermont wants us to bring it for Wednesday.

Nor my mentee.

Lavitz, when you meet your mentor, ask them if they're me.

When should we be looking to buy supplements, and where from?

0L here.

From what I've read (and asked) supplements are definitely helpful but not necessarily right away. Important supps are those for ConLaw (Chemerinsky) and for CivPro. The others are helpful (hit or miss) as well. They are good to explain the stuff that is pretty confusing / difficult. So you should look to get them for that point in the semester. Hornbooks and E&E seem to be the top recommended types. You can get them off 2/3Ls (you should be getting listserv) or even used from amazon and the like.

hth for now

I'd get Hillman's hornbook now, and wait to purchase others after speaking w/ people who had your professors and did well.

Don't buy everything until you're sure you need it. I have literally over a dozen supplements I've never opened.

Or for the rest of your life. Met some CLS alums recently who're still in shock.

Of course, who got cold-called on the first day of class on how Sibbach solves her dilemma?

This guy.

And I'm glad I took that warning seriously.

Haha. At least you didn't have a Clermontian Sibbach explanation.

Also, just a friendly tip: just because you've been called on today doesn't mean you're safe for the semester, or the next few weeks, or even the next couple of days. BHS strikes at any time.

She's likely to come back to him on the last day.

We had a girl get called on three times in the first 2 weeks.

Aside from the fact that he spent a slide on defining a dilemma (which didn't go to waste, as the first person who defined it was off base), I thought his explanation of Sibbach was fairly helpful and straight forward.

I remember reading here that he never cold calls, but he did today.

Eisenberg took a few jabs at Clermont and CivPro, so that was cool, I guess.

He always cold calls the first day, but he will mellow out. Also, I think you spend 3 days with Sibbach. It gets confusing, trust me.

Considering I had no idea what the case was really about while reading it, I definitely believe it gets worse. However, I appreciated his quirky humor and long-winded approach to explaining Sibbach. The iClicker usage is neat, too, I guess.
