In light of how much I pay for law school tuition, I decided to get some insurance by purchasing Gilbert's and Emanuel's outlines for most classes, and use the best of each for my course work.
As a side effect of that, I was able to do a comparison between the two and I was surprised that Emanuel's consistently gave deeper and broader treatment of subjects, especially in Property and Contracts.
Although Duke's outline is certainly useful, I strongly believe that you can do better with Emanuel's, which is also keyed to Duke's textbook.
My property professor covered about 1,100 pages of Dukeminier's textbook this semester, and she kept raving about how well the textbook was written and how she loved it.
Now, studying for the final, I cannot imagine a better book to review/re-learn some of this stuff.
Even if you didn't read his textbook, he covers literally EVERYTHING of importance. And, he has a handy section in the front that tells you what pages to focus on, depending on what textbook you read.
I love you Mr. Dukeminier, keep up the good work.
My property professor did not use Dukeminier's textbook, yet, this outline still seemed to flow pretty well chronologically with what we were studying. This was really helpful. I imagine that if your professor uses Dukeminier's textbook this resource would be even more invaluable.
Like any other Gilbert's this outline has a TON of information. Much much more information than you will likely cover in your class. And, as always, the outline is fairly specific in its coverage. It lists all of the exceptions to the exceptions which will likely bog you down if you do not have a good understanding of the general framework of the property law you are studying. And which will likely not be tested on your exams...but they are always good to know.
All-in-all I used this book to supplement my studies and found that it covered everything I needed and more. I didn't find any inconsistencies or conflicts with anything my professor said. Too bad property law in itself is killer.
In order explain concepts, the book uses terms that are defined later in the chapter, and simply gives examples without clarifying.
I think the authors are capable of explaining these concepts in an understandable way, but fail to do so. This is evident once you use the Gilberts outline written by Dukeminier, where concepts are well defined. Perhaps this is a ploy to sell more Gilberts. Regardless, the textbook leaves much to be desired.

Even though the school asked for the newer edition. But compared with the new 100 bucks stuff, an older edition with about 7 dollars is a great economical choice. Read morePublished on August 11, 2011 by ellen
