  1. I think this is a good essay. Let me offer you some constructive cscitiirm.I disagree with you on two points. First, dissents are almost never useful on exams; concurrences are only useful when they represent the fifth vote. I wouldn’t stress the importance of concurrences and dissents too much. There are a few important concurrences (like Youngstown), and Profs will highlight these to students. Most of the rest aren’t too important.Second, understanding the argument that lawyers made to the court is almost never important. This information is rarely included in law school text books anyway (except to the extent that you can figure out what the lawyers argued from the judge’s opinion). Also, it simply does not help you on an exam.I would add two things: (1) a short case, with commentary that shows the reader the holding, dicta, etc., (2) some guidelines for notetaking and outlining.[OK Comments:a0 Jeff, to be clear, this essay is for incoming students on how to read a case to be prepared for and to participate in class, not how to read a case to help you write an issue-spotter.]a0
