2L – Hobby Lobby

HobbyLobbyStowOhioWhen the 2L students return from the Labor Day weekend they will experience the First Day of Law School similar to what is chronicled in Scot Turow’s One L. Students will read the recent Supreme Court decision of Burwell v. Hobby Lobby. They are expected to have read the majority, concurring and dissenting opinions. They must independently create a case brief which follows the IRAC format outlined last year. PDF copies of the case opinions can be found at the JBS 2l Wiki.




One L by Scott Turow

One-L-Turow-ScottThe Law Cluster has required all first and second year students to read Scott Turow’s book, One L. This book is an account of Turow’s first year of law school at Harvard Law School. The book was so well regarded that many law schools have made it required reading for all incoming students.

We prefer the students obtain their own paperback copy so they can highlight and make other annotations. The book is available at Half Price books in their LAW section. Half Price Books is having an additional 20% off sale beginning Thursday. The book is also available at Barnes & Noble and online at Amazon

UPDATE: Some students have indicated difficulty in locating the book. You can still download from Amazon or Google. Here is link to the first chapter online at Google Books.
