Off The Charts Law Summaries contains a new layout comprised solely of charts designed to graphically communicate important information in a uniform, easy-to understand format. It contains concise charts summarizing the key concepts of all of the fundamental first year law school courses: Civil Procedure, Criminal Law, Contracts, Property Law, and Torts, which have been combined into a single, affordable book giving students the freedom to transfer from subject to subject while studying along with the convenience of a single, portable item.
This graphical presentation provides an organizational framework for the overwhelming quantity of dense and complex first year materials by displaying large amounts of information in a straightforward and visually appealing way that highlights the most important topics within the subject. Off The Charts' unique, shorthand format can be used to test a student’s comprehensive understanding of the subject matter throughout the semester as well as to provide a quick and efficient review before a final exam or the bar exam.
The concise format of Off The Charts Law Summaries enables students to not only learn the specifics of a certain statute, rule or case, but also to learn how each fits into the broader subject matter. This integrated level of understanding is vital for successful exam performance, but is far more difficult to achieve when a single subject is spread across numerous pages and chapters. By representing information spatially, students are able to better understand relationships and patterns that exist within the topic and draw distinctions between similar rules and concepts.
