If you are a law student, you probably feel that you have a ton of work to do. You are always working and typing. Typing up briefs as you read cases. Typing up class notes (or, really, transcripts of your class). Typing up outlines. Or you may even be copying and pasting from your class notes. Does any of this sound familiar? And then come exam time, you realize that you don’t really know or understand some of the material that you have been typing all semester.
This is such a common story. Students feel they are constantly working, yet learning nothing. So what is missing? Why do students feel this way?
