This document was prepared as a handout for first year law students in a Civil Procedure class, but it could be useful for students in any class where both cases and statutes are read. In addition to providing general advice on study habits, it suggests formats for students to use in summarizing (or briefing) both case law and statutes. Since fewer resources exist to guide students in reading statutes, the handout devotes more space to that topic, including examples and problems.
