Buss is one of the best humans on planet earth, though she does talk too fast.

Just buy Glannon. She basically teaches straight out of it save for the obsession with Twiqbal.

Nah, I just figured I'd post what my impressions were and then if other fellow students did the same you can parse through a bunch of samples. The 2Ls last year did that on the c/o 2017 thread and I remember it being very helpful. Obviously my experience/opinions about each professors will be different from my classmates' experiences/options.

Also, I second Wheninlaw that buying Glannon supplement for Buss was extremely helpful for me and I have heard the same from other classmates I have spoken to. She teaches right from it in class.

Do you know how long these are supposed to be? I did my outline but what is my time limit I'm shooting for?

You will be so sick of that case by the end of first quarter.

Wait is this an actual class or more of a, "this is how to read a case"?

If it's like last year it is just "this is how to read a case." Your bigelow won't cold call first meeting. Take it seriously though, it's helpful to have practice. It's unlikely you've spent a lot of time reading cases before law school

It's a class that happens during orientation so it's a mix of both. My Bigelow cold called me and I hadn't read the case so avoid things like that happening to you. You'll learn stuff like what a case cite is and what a holding is, etc.

No cold calling but was very clearly an academic class.

I'm feeling pretty good. Hopefully it works out pretty well and I get a seat where my blind ass can actually see the prof.
