One of the questions we get constantly is why should I purchase a law book study aid. I have the law school casebook and the law professor will go over everything in class. WRONG!
At exam time you will be absolutely clueless unless you invest in one or preferably two study aids. You need to purchase them at the beginning of the semester and start going through them on a regular basis. Most law schools teach by the “case” method. You go over cases or precedents in class and then the law school professor expects you to get the concepts and how to apply them on your own.
This is backward to the way most other subjects are taught. You are actually better off not to purchase the law school casebook, purchase two or three study aids, and research the cases on Westlaw or Lexis Nexis. They provide you with a summary so you do not need the popular Casenotes. Use an outline program and link to the case on whichever service you prefer. Most states also have their own search engine where you can research state cases. Enter the concept, such as reasonable suspicion, and research the case law in your state.
The law school study aids I found to be best were the ones by Examples & Explanations, Siegles Law School Study Aids and Glannon Guides. Click on the individual subject link on the left to find my recommendations for each law school subject. The main thing when you go into the exam is to know the “Black Letter” law cold. You need to be able to put down the rule automatically without thinking once you recognize the issue. You will lose points if you do not accurately state the rule even if you use it properly in your application.
