You can buy 4 year old law books on textbooks for $5 a pop.

But seriously, you can find a 1L curriculum from a good school and figure out which books they use. Get the older editions for $5 on textbooks.com. Then just get the outlines from outlinedepot.com and see if you can pick it up.

re: career during the day, law school at night


I am doing this now as a 1L. Take all my classes on Saturday (also have the option to go three nights during the week). It is like a second job. I work 7:00 to 3:30 M-F and study from 4-9 or 10 after that almost every night. You get in a groove and stop having a life and watching TV. Usually my breaks I play on here and some other places. The key is knowing what you are working toward and actually enjoying what you are learning. I take time off from work to visit an attorney mentor. He gets free labor and I get my feet wet.

ETA:

Your biggest advantage when you are done is that you will have experience outside of practicing law.

So you're pretty much Russell Crowe in American Gangster.

Hey! It's this thread again!

Cool. The program I'm looking at would be 6-9pm Monday-Thursday. The full time positions while I work could be anything from 6am-4pm or 7am-5pm or even 6am-5pm. One company I talked to is going to need a contracts guy to replace their current guy when he retires in a few years. If they're willing to help pay for schooling (this is actually a possibility) and be flexible with schedule (their HR guy mentioned this as well), I could work for 4 years in project controls (estimating/scheduling) while being groomed by the contracts guy and going to school at night. Then, once I pass the bar, I'd take over for the old guy so he can retire without leaving a void in the company. The company in question is a small subsidiary of a large national industrial contractor.

What is your day job if you don't mind me asking.

I could see myself doing this as a second career in or outside education once I'm eligible for retirement.
