One of the questions we get constantly is why should I purchase a 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 textbook but to 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, Seigles 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.
Law school outlines and exams are listed on each subject page along with links to legal research websites that you may find helpful. There are also links to outline banks and past law school exam banks at the 1L Survival link.
Here are some general law school books that you need to read the summer prior to starting law school. Getting to Maybe is probably the best one and Scoring High on Bar Exam Essays will be invaluable. Your grades will depend on how well you do on your essay exams and writing for law school is completely different from your previous experiences. This article on taking a law school essay exam may help you through the agony.
Textbooks and Study Aids are not everything that you will need. I highly recommend that you go ahead and invest in a fast printer. You can buy a little one but that is just a waste. Go ahead and invest in one that can do everything that you will need for all three years and more. I have used the Epson ink jet printers for many years with excellent results. However, DO NOT BUY Epson Ink as it is way overpriced. I have used rebuilt cartridges without any problems. Also invaluable is a program that allows you to scan documents into WORD. I recommend the ABBY FineReader program. Many of you law textbooks and study aids are now available on Kindle.
