Class schedule is up for us (from CAESAR):
CLR: Christopher Martin
Civil Procedure: Redish
Any suggestions? Warnings? Recommended supplements?
Also, anybody with outlines (Please, pm)? (I understand there is a “outline bank”, but do AJDs have access to it?)
Thank you in advance.
There are a few Northwestern outline banks. For the summer, I'd highly recommend making use of the AJD outline bank because you'll get a lot of professor overlap. You will definitely get access to the bank, probably soon. As to the profs, we had Tiller, Martin and Redish last year. They're all super nice and invested in their students' performance.
Tiller uses a pretty straight forward approach to contracts. His PPT slides will cover most everything you need to know, but any standard supplement would probably be relevant if you'd like to read one.
CLR is CLR. No supplement/outlining necessary. I would recommend picking his brain as much as you can through the writing process. The goal is to write what your reader wants to read, so any one-on-one feedback you can get will be a plus.
The consensus about Redish is that he deviates enough from the mainstream that reading supplements is not worthwhile. I read the E&E Civ Pro, and I can confirm that it was not particularly relevant to the material we covered in class (there was more than zero overlap, but not much more). Redish will make some of his articles available as supplements, and there are some great outlines available on the AJD bank.
I've never had Yuracko or Friedman, but I know Friedman is an economics guy, so I'd expect his torts class to have at least some economic theory. For these profs, you might have more luck asking around at the Northwestern 1L/2L/3L TLS thread if you haven't already.
