I didn't really like Chemerinsky as much as everyone else did. I felt like it did a good job filling me in on important cases, but it didn't have as much analysis as I would have liked. Then again, I read it a while ago so I might be forgetting. I'm taking Con Law 2 now, is there a better one?

Also - anyone know about Public International Law? (lol). Something about the UN.

I liked the E&E a lot, but I didn't read Freer like a lot of people suggested.

I found Inside Con Law, what matters + why to be a mini-chemerinsky of equal value.

+1.

I also thought the Glannon Guide was excellent.

Is your Con Law 2 an individual rights kind of class? I need a good supplement for individual rights/bill of rights/whatever material.

Yeah, exactly. I still have my Chemerinsky book but I'm looking for something else too. Usually I just read supplements a couple days before the exam. What I think I'll do with Con Law 2 is read Chemerinsky throughout the semester along with the text book to help me understand cases, but read a different one at the end of the semester like I usually do.

Any suggestions for a survey intellectual property course? There are a couple of threads on TLS, but I didn't find anything too informative. Some suggest Emanuel's, others the E&E.

My prof wrote the Emanuel's & Crunchtime so I used them. I liked them a lot, but I guess that's because of how closely related it was to everything we learned. I found them useful though and they helped flush out a lot of things we went over in class that all went over my head.

Cool -- are they comparable? Or are they sufficiently different such that I should look into picking up both?

Emanuel's is like 10x longer and more in depth and still has practice questions. I bought both because I'm a supplements whore.

For Leg Reg I used Mastering Statutory Interpretation....Aced the course.

http://www.amazon.com/Mastering-Statuto ... 1594603146

It doesn't go into too much detail for the Chevron stuff....for that I would check out some other administrative law supplements listed on the forum.

I highly recommend the Glannon Guide for a Bankruptcy class.

Just wanted to echo that chemerinsky is absolute gold IMO. Like the poster above said, it's insanely long, but I think Erwin does a great job of simplifying the material, tying it all together, and giving you the key principles/concepts that apply in each area of the law. Also felt like the torts e&e is good fwiw, but torts is 100x simpler than con law and a supplement may not be necessary at all.

Anyone have any suggestions for Evidence? Didn't see it mentioned in this or the 1L supplement thread.

For evidence, I used Emanuel's and got an A-. I didn't use the textbook for studying before the final.

Generally, yes, but obviously, it might depend on your professor.
