Am I alone in finding Property to be the most infuriating 1L subject? It's just endless arbitrary rule memorization and learning an entire new vocabulary...the cases we read are so fact-dense and specific it's almost impossible to brief them without just reproducing the text from the opinion.

It may be because our professor decided to beta-test one of her colleague's unpublished textbooks for our course, and it's basically useless. I'm about as low-stress as someone can be...but property has me buggin'

Anyone else, or am I a loser?

Get Gilbert's, read, relax. Tbh, I had no idea what the hell was going on last semester in property. I just read Gilbert's, read the cases, looked at old outlines, and said fuckit on exam day. Worked out OK. Still don't get property.

You just made me feel so much better. I think property is interesting, but I have no idea what's going on.

Maybe my prof is going slowly, maybe he is just really good, maybe it being an elective makes it more tolerable, I don't know but I feel like so far it is just a series of (not that many) interconnected rules. Reminds me a lot of contracts. I'll admit some of the cases are slogs to read through, but overall I am not hating it and definitely do not feel confused.

Ah. We're doing somewhere between 120-150 pages a week in property vs. 20-40 pages a week in contracts. So Property just seems unwieldy

Yeah it probably just that, as an elective we only have 2 classes a week, and he is pretty thorough, probably like 45 a week.

:shock: @ 150 pages a week

not only is there no way you can cover that much, but it makes the final even more of a mess b/c you have all this material that may or may not show up

I think property is pretty interesting but also completely absurd. idk wtf is going on with future interests

We have probably 60-80 pages or so a week on the syllabus, but make it through like 10.

Prof reminds me of the dog from Up. He starts off trying to make a point, but is constantly being distracted by SQUIRREL!

now that I think about it I, too, have a super confusing crim prof. I've been putting off actually learning crim since it doesn't have a midterm and therefore does not exist until spring break

I have this idea in my head that I'm going to get a yuuuuuuuge amount of stuff done during spring break
