Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast!
Studying in law school is not one-size fits all. Each student learns in a different way. The key is to recognize the type of learner you are and use that information to optimize your study style — for YOU.
In this episode we talk about:
- The three main types of learning styles – Auditory, Visual and Kinesthetic
- Whether learning styles even exist
- How to figure out your learning preferences you are
- Specific techniques for each learning style in law school
- How to outline and what type of learner should (and shouldn’t) utilize outlining
- Why you should probably handwrite your outlines
- The basics of attack plans, and why they’re important (for everyone!)
- Using checklists vs. roadmaps for your attack plans
- Flowcharts, Flashcards, and Mnemonics and who can benefit from them
