At Sua Sponte, a rant about law school casebooks. Indeed they are as useless as they are expensive. They are also difficult to get rid of-- we still have 'em, all over the house. That's four abodes since we graduated. We use a couple to prop open windows in the summer, but mostly they are just around.

Oh, and jca? Hornbooks are almost as bad. There aren't immutable black letter rules in American jurisprudence, for the most part. I can't tell you the last time I thought a peek at Prosser would reveal the answer-- that one sits on top of the secretary desk in our front hall, under a pile of papers that must have seemed important once, and a basket full of keys that don't open anything any more.
