I had an assistant following me from class to class, writing for me etc. When I got good grades, the students thought my assistant had given me the answers. This caused me great pain and sadness. I was not an athlete or a "cool" kid, and had NO friends. I thought I was good for nothing. I was always sad, and depressed. Then, I started reading classical literature. Charles Dickens is my absolute favorite author. Literature became my escape, and took my mind off of everything. I found that through literature, I could do anything, and be anywhere.( my experience is very similar to Dr. Carsons) I gained self confidence, and decided to immerse myself in academics. I promised myself that no matter what, I would transfer into a private school after freshmen year of high school. This was a very lofty goal. I was visually impaired, my family is lower middle class, and I don't play sports. When I told my public school advisor I was applying to private school, she laughed and said " Dream on bud. Your not rich, and your not a jock" Well not only did I get in, but I got an 80% scholarship. She was absolutely shocked.. She begged me not to go, and said " I don't want to see you fail" I started at the private school last year( Sophomore year) and made Honor Roll both semesters. Keep in mind I did this with NO assistance. I am also disliked by my family'. My father has told me that I'm wasting my time going to private school, because I will amount to nothing due to my sight. My family is from the Middle East, and they have very closed minded views on disability. Another reason my family dislikes me is because I joined the Anglican Church 2 years ago, and they are conservative Muslims. The main point of me telling you all this is I want you to understand where I'm coming from. I don't have an easy life. I have had challenges, and low expectations put on me, and I have destroyed all of them. Maybe I'm wrong about some things, but I'm not just another obnoxious high school kid. Like I said, my views don't matter today, but that could change. ( Ted Cruzs views didn't matter when he was 16 either) I will run for office. I will start small ( school board or city council) and work my way up. Call me a troll all you want, but I am serious about my views. I will get on TLS again, if I decide to apply to law school. It does me no good to be on here right now. In the meantime, I wish you guys the best with law school, and with your legal careers. You WILL hear of me again.

The more time you spend on defunct rules the less material you need to learn, because nobody will ever test you on defunct rules. Asking to get rid of them is like asking your boss to get rid of Christmas.

You know that the point of law school and 1L particularly is to teach you how to think like a lawyer and not just to teach you THE LAW. THE LAW is different in every state and constantly changes. It would be pointless and unhelpful to just teach you the law of one state. That's what you do when you study for the bar.

The real answer is that your 1L coursework isn't about it supposed to be about "current" rules. You'll learn that when you study for the bar. Torts, property, and contracts substantively is really one area (see, e.g., Gilmore, Death of Contract), but three different vantage points on the concept of Anglo-American common law. (Hence why this curriculum is often referred to as the "common law" coursework). Concepts like 'tort' and 'property' are historical, and professors approach them historically and canonically because its training in argumentation and theory of law for any jurisdiction, and the pedagogy reinforces the dominant schools: law and economics, legal positivism, legal realism, critical theory, new critical theory, ect.

If you wanted to simply learn current rules for a particular state, you could take a $2,500 barbri class.
