Logistics for first year

I see people starting to post 1L textbooks for sale on Facebook is it worth it to get used textbooks or is it easier to get them through the bookstore. I’m mainly worried about getting the right edition, do they change often? 

Looking at the list of textbooks posted on the College's website, it appears that all of the required textbooks are the same edition as the 1L textbooks last year. As long as you confirm the editions (there may be some 3L's that will be selling their 1L texts that are older editions), then you will be fine. I would suggest selecting textbooks that have minimal highlighting as some law students are heavy-handed when it comes to highlighting. Excessive highlighting by others can make it challenging to determine what elements of the cases are essential to you. New texts will cost you about $1000-$1500 depending on if you get all the supplementary or not, so used is a great option IF you match the editions. I would highly recommend against getting older editions as students in my year did that, and they often were missing cases or had to spend additional time figuring out the right pages. 

Edit: You will want to buy the 2020 Criminal Code as the 1L's from last year would have used the 2019.

My PAWS updated last night. It seems like the class schedule for 1L is out. The confirmation of Enrolment Letter is also working for me. As for the textbooks, only a few show up right now.

    • Got an invitation to a cocktail reception today from a Van firm. Confirmed an OCI in the same email.
    • You drink while studying?
    • I think I once passed through Saskatchewan by train, and I've flown over it a number of times. But seeing comment excerpts in the sidebar attracted me to this thread. I was just wondering why OP is so against a lunch break. If she doesn't want to eat lunch okay, but why should other people be denied the opportunity?! Eating in class is problematic for multiple reasons (sound, smell, sight, spring to mind). And what's wrong with having a day off in the middle of the week, in which she could study all day at home, sipping old fashioneds?
    • I scored a 156 on the July LSAT and I'm seriously considering canceling my score. My poor GPA doesn't help my situation either. I consistently scored between 152-162 on PT's. My list of schools I'd like to get into goes something like this; McGill, Calgary, Queens, Dalhousie, Windsor and then Western. Any input, advice or general help would be amazing for me as I'm struggling with this decision.
    • Okay, listen here, ass hat. I like to do my reading at home, the way I've been doing it for the past four years during my undergrad. Obviously it worked for me since I got into law school. I'm not interested in lugging my books all over Hell's half acre trying to find a quiet corner of the library or student lounge to read in when I can do it from the comfort of my couch with an old fashioned. Furthermore, I don't need someone to block out time in the middle of my day for me to do my readings since I'm a night owl as is. It would be much more productive for me, and undoubtedly others, if we could set our own schedules. By the way, the period goes inside of the quotation mark. Idiot.
