Is it bad that Civ Pro is my favorite because we have made it fewer than 40 pages into the casebook?

I still brief mine except in con law. If I wasn't briefing cases I have no idea what else I'd be doing at this point other than reading.

I'm still briefing all of mine. I'm still too nervous about my mind going blank during a cold call to not do it. Plus, it's easier for me to refresh before class if I have all of the relevant info in front of me.

Yah. I don't really know why I wouldn't. Read case, spend 5 min typing up a brief. Helps so I don't look dumb in class (sometime I still do). But the 5min it takes for me to make it doesn't seem like a big deal.

Yeah I brief really well so that I don't have to carry the casebook around

I'm finding myself jotting down a few bullet points, mainly the rule and holding. Some of my professors make cold calling pretty easy and others make everyone look like a dumbass, so I think it's a wash. :|

You're fine. 95% of professors don't give a shit about citing case names on exams. Do confirm that your prof isn't one of the 5% though.


For my 1L the reverse was true. Only 1 professor explicitly said that they didn't give points for citing cases. For all others it was absolutely required to make a good grade. Btw I'm sure this is understood here, but you don't get (many) points for saying rule X, from case Y. You get points for reasoning by analogy: this set of facts is [like/different from] that case because XYZ. Therefore the court should rule ____


Citing Case Names and Citing Cases are not the same thing. All my profs wanted you to cite cases. All of them also said the name was unimportant if you clearly identified the case. Knowing the name, though, allows you to cite the case with one or two words rather than describing the case at length, e.g. "Hadley" vs "the case on incidental damages for late delivery of the drive shaft."

Since y'all are already discussing what outlines should look like, I'll post this link here. Not saying these are perfect, but they got me through plenty well.

Is it a partner-track associate? If so, they could work on building a "permanent network."

been experimenting with reading ahead. not really noticing much diff. if anything, it's even more time consuming because i gotta read all my shit again briefly before classes to refresh my memory.

also onenote on mac is garbage. can't save locally? fuck that.

I still essentially brief although extremely short hand in word. I basically only underline/make limited notes in my CB and take like 5 mins to write down what I read. Then, I make sure to compare it to commercial briefs (to make sure I didn't f### up the rule). Helps retain facts better IMO, plus I can spit answers out a little faster when cold calling getting an essentially worthless ego boost.

Have a class that doesn't allow laptops....not cool.
