Question about section 3: When I click on the ISIS link to buy my books, all of the names of my professors are listed with their books except my profesional responsibility teacher. Does that mean there is a chance she might not be my teacher or something? I ask because I don't want to buy books if it's not finalized for her to be teaching the class.

It probably means the teacher hasn't decided which book she will use, or they forgot to put it in the system. If I were you, I'd call the school to make sure.

I really don't think you have the toughest professors. And you'll probably be able to use laptops. Based on last year:

Jacobs: No laptops
Mashburn: Laptops
Klein: Laptops
Noah: Laptops
King: No idea

Pretty much all of the LRW professors allow laptops.

Ok, Section one is back to being the best again.

TBF, given the curve, doesn't it really not matter how the teacher administers the test, as we are competing against each other regardless?

Exactly.

and an ambassador emailed me, never saying that he is my/ours, but is "a student ambassador" ... I guess that means he is <3 mine <3 :)

No. Unless they emailed you today it doesn't mean they are yours. One emailed me in the beginning of July but said she might not be mine. And I think they were assigned per section so they couldn't have known before yesterday.

I think my UG performance demonstrated I am consistently shitty at all of them, so there's that.

You responded? I never know what to say in response to those emails, because I can never think of questions I want to ask

No, I meant responded to prettyinpink. I didn't respond to him. I think its kind of weird he never specifically said he was my ambassador, but rather is a general one? It was only emailed to a handful of people though so... anyways I didn't email him but I might just for the clarification haha. (ps- party starts at 7 you totally have time to drive here!!)

I wish I could! Next time :( I got an email from the person who is leading my "group." He mentioned at the very end that I was in his group for ISLP, so maybe check the email again to make sure?

Does anyone know if spring classes will really start on a Friday? The schedule says we start on the 6th of January which is a Friday. My cousin is getting married on the 7th so this would be super inconvient. I'm just confused why we would start class on Friday?

They do that sometimes, often because you may have off some Friday during the semester.

Are any current students planning on selling their books? If so, PM me with a price for separates or as a bundle. I have no problem buying books with some highlighting as long as it's not crazy and if your books are unbound, I'm fine with that too as long as pages aren't missing (obviously).

I'm in Section 3 and need these required books (The first two books are my main concern):
1. Cases and Materials on Torts, 4th (American Casebook Series) - David W. Robertson
2. Professional Responsibility, A Contemporary Approach (Interactive Casebooks) - Russell Pearce
3. Criminal Law and Its Processes: Cases and Materials, Eighth Edition (Casebook) - Sanford H. Kadish
4. Bluebook: A Uniform System of Citation
5. Impeccable Research, A Concise Guide to Mastering Legal Research Skills (American Casebook) - Mark K. Osbeck
6. Basic Legal Research: Tools and Strategies - Amy E. Sloan
7. Contract Law: Selected Source Materials, 2010 (American Casebook) - Steven J. Burton
8. Basic Contract Law (American Casebooks) - Lon L. Fuller

Let me know if you have any of these optional books or feel free to tell me if they are not worth buying:
1. Professional Responsibility, A Student's Guide, 2010-2011 - Ronald D. Rotunda
2. Selected Standards on Professional Responsibility, 2011 - Thomas D. Morgan

Thanks! :D




So many assigned books :shock:
