lloll4: wukong from Stephen Chow movie (wukong)
[personal profile] lloll4
Last year I had a prof who, in between talking about cases, started telling us about his time as a law student and it was only when he started talking about how he 'got' cases from from his cubbyhole that I realised, what d'you mean, someone found those cases and delivered them to you?

How is it that I only get pages and pages of citations and I have to look them up myself, which takes ages, and honestly, by the time I've 'got' all the required cases, my will to read them has evaporated?

Yeah, in the pre-online database age, it was probably a much more onerous task if one had to look up every law report collection, and to read them, take notes, photocopy - the utter legwork of it all. So I guess law schools in the past helped out? I freely admit still to a nagging sense of unfairness, though. What time I spend on looking for cases through different databases is really much better spent on reading them, y'know.

Another way of saying that I did. not. realise equity reading is 50 cases for the first two weeks (well, 45 cases and 5 journal articles).
