Heidi does a decent job of IRAC bashing, but I must add one tiny thing about it that aggravated me no end during 1L year: the interaction of IRAC and page limits. Using IRAC entails so much repetitive writing that you have to cram your analysis into less space than you might otherwise have. Perhaps it's good to teach us to be concise, but that goal is at odds with the IRAC method's insistence on redundant content. (Practitioner citations in text instead of footnotes only aggravate this problem. God, I hated FYL.)
