Over 50,000 Cases Briefed

LSD+ gives you access to over 50,000 case briefs, more than anyone else. Be the first to email us the website of a case brief product that offers you more case briefs and we'll give you a free year of LSD+.

14-Day Free Trial

Unlimited access. Read as much content as you want during your trial with no device limitations. Cancel any time during your trial and keep access for the full 14 days.

Integrated Legal Dictionary

Lawyers and judges love to use big words. And Latin, for some reason.

Highlight a legal term in LSD Briefs and get an instant, plain English definition. Try highlighting contract or specific performance. No need to search or read through a list of definitions, simply highlight the words you don’t know and our LSDefine integration will instantly give you a definition to any of over 30,000 legal terms.

DeepDive

DeepDive allows you to explore legal cases like never before. DeepDive offers multiple levels of case summaries, which empowers you to quickly and easily find the information you need to stay on top of readings. Easily navigate through summary levels and click on any text to get more detail, all the way down to the original legal case text.

Brief anything. Instantly.

Our proprietary state-of-the-art system can instantly brief over 6,000,000 US cases. That means we can probably brief that case that your professor assigned last night when she sent you a poorly scanned pdf and told you to read every third paragraph. Or maybe she uploaded it to Canvas and didn’t really tell you to read it, but you know you probably should. Tenure does wild things to good people.

Social Learning with Chat and High Points

Study groups are a great way to learn and explore a case. LSD has chat rooms for each case to let you ask questions across the community and hear what other students struggled with and how they put it all together. Learn the key points of every case from other LSD+ users and share your knowledge with LSD High Points.

Real-Time Brief Feedback

Don’t settle for mistakes in briefs that have been there for 10 years and never fixed. Find an issue or something missing from a brief? Down vote and we will make improvements. All of our case brief editors graduated from from T14 law schools.

Oops, looks like the closing bracket got merged with the link. Delete that and the em-dash to get it to work

JB spreading fake news

(Some people would in fact make that case, because the nonprofit worker, or journalist, or Hill staffer, or insert your choice of educateed-but-underpaid job here, has cultural capital and/or probably lives in a wealthier *area* even if they personally are not wealthy. You be the judge of whether that fits your personal understanding of working-class)

JB I am kidding

Gotcha, just posting the rest of my wall of text
20:46
I really do not consume a news because I think it is all a little tainted. If I do, I normally synthesize a few different networks.
20:48
I don’t think working class for me is probably more an income amount more than occupation.

Northwestern students just love ousting their administration, truly a wildcat tradition
jb2028

If this story is accurate, the Dean - Revamped the hiring process and pushed out HR people that didn't like the new way - Pushed out a person whose job was Twitter - Didn't make administrators help a student rent an apartment (?!?) - Does seem to have some unhelpful micromanagement tendencies, she should work on that
21:51
Fuck
21:51
That’s all
jb2028

Reducing HR/marketing headcounts would be an unvarnished pro at 90% of higher ed institutions, the rental thing really is not an administrator's job when you're a large adult human, the micromanagement stuff seems bad but the headline writes some checks the reporting can't cash
jb2028

If there's anything there that would give me pause before considering NU, it's the quotes from faculty (some do seem pretty upset and/or describe less-than-ideal management practices) but the framing of staffing changes in HR/marketing as some unthinkable wrong is nuts
Same with Northwesterns ousting of the football coach
You would think snitching didn’t align with the Chicago way
I will take any t14 and I will be happy
Should I send locis to every t14 saying that
jb2028

Any idea what might be hurting your app? With a 3.8mid and 178 I'd expect you to have some offers (or at least waitlists rather than denials at UChicago/Michigan)
jb2028
22:12
I wouldn't tell them you just want a T14. The schools want a reason you'll enroll there over their peer schools if you look competitive at both. If there is a school you would attend if admitted (other than Yale/Stanford, who assume that), that is worth putting in a LOCI.
22:33
they don't call me the waitlist collector for nothing
22:33
or at all
@jb2028: i have 2 years of retroactive withdrawls plus 3 year gap in UG after that due to a health condition. it's why I had to stop MMA
this is pretty much the app killer
