The Paper Chase
Like many student groups at Boalt Hall, Boalt.org collects student-developed outlines for its members. Of course, the outlines provided here are for educational purposes only and their use should comply with Boalt Hall's Academic Honor Code.

In the spirit of cooperation that sets Boalt Hall students apart from other law schools, Boalt.org requests your help in helping your fellow student. Email your outlines to outlines@boalt.org and they will be added to our database. Outlines should be submitted in Microsoft Word format with the file name saved as follows: Class_Professor_YearSemester.

Copyright: Please note that all outlines are copyrighted by their individual students. The students give them to other Boalt students free for their use. Commercial services are absolutely not permitted to access, harvest or use these outlines.

Fine Print

These outlines are not endorsed or reviewed by professors (or, necessarily, other students). They are created by students and may include inaccuracies, biases, or missing material. Also, please note that professors change material from year to year, so all outlines should be used as supplements to notes from the current semester.


Numbering: Outlines are numbered basically in the order we get them. Outline #1 does not mean that it is more complete or accurate at all.

Formatting: Outlines are in MS Word format unless otherwise noted. Outlines in ZIP format include more than one document, and we've tried to note if PowerPoint (PPT), Excel, or other formats are included.

Viruses: We do scan all documents for viruses but that is only as good as our virus software. If viruses are a concern for you, you should have virus software of your own to check all material downloaded from the Internet.




Other Outline Banks (not affiliated with boalt.org)

Check with your journal or membership organization. Many student organizations have outline banks, either on their web-site or in hardcopy in the organization's office. Outline banks that are online are often password-protected, as a member benefit. Westlaw and Lexis have a few commercial outlines available.

Here's a few to get started:

Boalt Hall Women's Association (you must be a dues-paying member of BHWA)
California Law Review (1L outlines; 2L and 3L outlines for CLR members only)
