Notes Repository (AUSL 2002-2006; Haystacks)

It was during the second year of my law school studies (SY 2003-2004) that I started to create a new format for my case notes, since I observed that some cases in the previous year were reiterated in the higher subjects. Resort to previously made digests was inappropriate, since the issues focused were different.

Notes Repository (AUSL 2002-2006; Digests)

When I was in law school (SYs 2002-2006), I found it more efficient to prepare the case digests using a computer. It was only at the time when my case digests appear sufficient in their electronic form, did I start to write the case digests by hand, as required in most early law school subjects. Compilations of some of the said soft copies are provided below.
