First year textbooks - Robson Hall, WPG

Recommended Posts

Hi folks, I'm in Winnipeg, MB and am selling a bunch of my 1L textbooks, which appear to still be good for incoming 1Ls this year. All are in great shape other than a few dog-eared pages, and only the Torts one has any highlighting/underlining.


I crosslisted on Kijiji, but will try to update as they sell. If you take 'em all I'll cut you a deal!


Learning Canadian Criminal Law (13th ed, Stuart) – $80

Same edition listed for this year. U of M Bookstore is selling for $156 new/$117 used.


Canadian Constitutional Law (4th ed, Bakan) – $80

Same edition listed this year for all Constitutional classes at $126 new/$94 used. I do not have the download code anymore.


Principles of Property Law (6th ed, Ziff) – $60

Being used again this year for all first year property classes, listed at $141 new/$105 used.


Law of Torts (4th ed, Osborne) – $30

5th ed is listed for Prof. Irvine’s class at $65 new/$48 used. The 5th ed was listed last year too, but Irvine said the 4th was fine. Even if you’re not with Irvine, it’s a really clear and helpful book. Has some highlighting. 


Intro to study of Law (7th ed, Waddams) – $20

The 8th ed is listed this year at $67 new/$50 used, but I don’t imagine it’s much different from the 7th ed. 


Comprehensive Guide to Legal Research (Student ed, McCarney) – $40

This year the 2nd ed is listed for $95 new/$71 used. Again, I doubt it makes a difference.

    • I learned to embrace the fact that I'm financially independent. I speak loudly about my debt, without shame. My family immigrated here. They worked hard. They somehow found jobs in their profession. They're now saving for retirement, so I didn't want to put the 100 000 burden on them while they're doing that - it's hard enough to retire after only 15-20 working years in a country without having to service law school debt! Yes I'm worried about my debt. But I'm proud of it because I'm investing in my career so I can do some good in the world. I could've taken an entry level consulting gig after my undergrad, but that wasn't what I wanted to do So I turned it down. When my friends tell me about their reading week trip to Morocco in a 5 star resort, I tell them how I managed to fund a 4 day ski trip off of my credit card points plus 100 dollars. And we both share our experiences over a beer. And while it's hard, I also imagine what an amazing life my kids, if I'm lucky enough to have any, will have - and that pushes me to work harder.   Sorry went on a rant there. It's been.. an interesting night.
    • I felt the same alienation when people talked about their (or really, their parents’) cottages, time shares, vacations, hockey season tickets etc. Seemed like everyone had been to Europe (I know not everyone had but so many people talked about it.) Some people even had boats and horses etc. A few had condos bought for them by their parents and people talked about how their parents were paying their tuition. That was also hard to hear. 
    • Is drinking an Olympic sport? 
    • "Be more interesting" is the best advice I've ever received, the best advice I could ever give, and my constant goal in life. You can never be too interesting. 
    • The two aren't mutually exclusive. I've enjoyed all the activities that I planned to do before applying and have met some great people along the way.
