Out of Line

What is up with some of these outlines? Granted, I'm pretty concise in my note taking - I'm no Transcriber. The most pages of notes I have this semester (not the most attentive semester of my law school career I admit) is 65 pages for Remedies. Some of my other classes have half that. That includes my dorky briefs for every case in the reading plus class notes.

Some of these kids have 70 page outlines! A friend said it best: can you really call that an outline?

My outlines have never been real favorites; my Remedies outline is only 19 pages. I've been accused of being "cryptic," but jeez, I try to keep my outlines within the boundaries of my attention span.

well, unlike you, i'm not even making my own outlines this semester, but i know what you mean. i got one from a friend for one of my classes and it was 127 pages long!!! that's not an outline, that's rewriting the book for the most part.

This is a stupid question, but what is "Remedies" class? I'm civil law, so maybe we have something similar.

Oops. Nevermind. Remedies is equities I think....

Yep, remedies is damages: preliminary injunctions, compensatory damages, actions in replevin, in assumpsit, and other ridiculous words like that.
