In today’s video, Lee shares some helpful suggestions about how to manage your time. Being a law student is a full time job! Check out Lee’s tips about how to use your time productively!
Today, I wanted to talk a bit about getting things done. At this point in the law school semester, there is more work than time (or at least that is what it feels like). You can find yourself making lists of things to do or setting goals and it still feels as though you aren’t getting anything done. How do you remedy this? Well, sometimes we all need a little accountability in our lives.
Let me share with you a personal example. I have projects that I do on my own and those that I work on with Alison. When working on my own projects, it becomes very easy to change deadlines, change scope or just opt not to do something. Because whom am I accountable to? Only myself!
Today, Alison will share how to build the best foundation for your learning using cases, outlines and hornbooks, along with a different way to think about law school.

Today is my catch-up-on-work day. I have a list of things that I need to work on and get done. And I have plenty of time to get them done. Today’s list is really all about writing. I need to catch up on some blog posts, some bar exam tools reviews, and some content for our membership site. I actually enjoy this work, but to write quality material for you all to read, I find that I need to focus. And that is my challenge today. Perhaps it is the fact that it was rainy and cold earlier and now the sun is out. Perhaps it is that I need more coffee. Or perhaps it is just early in the week. But the reality is, I am very easily distracted this morning. [Read more…] about How the Internet Can Kill My Productivity
Last month I shared five tips for a great legal writing assignment. Number five on this list was to proofread and double-check citations. However, many students are still struggling with this step (according to what my students are sharing with me). Because of this, today I wanted to share with you why I think citations are important and how you should approach your assignment to make sure that citations don’t get ignored (as this often leads to easy missed points come grading time).
What are citations and why do we use them?
In today’s video, Lee will discusse the most important information to include in your outline. Remember — outlines are study tools that should work for you. She will also share two great ways to test the effectiveness of your outline.
