How to Study Effectively For Law School Exams
Now that there are only a few weeks left in the semester, it is time to start thinking about how to study effectively for law school exams. It is important to make sure that you are not wasting the valuable time that you do have on tactics that will not be helpful in the end. At this point you should already have made significant progress on all of your outlines. If you haven’t, make sure you’re concentrating heavily on that! Doing detailed case briefs from your readings this late in the semester is not beneficial – your outlines are a much more critical tool for success on the final. If you are feeling a little lost, or feeling the pressure build up, here are some excellent do’s and don’ts on how to study effectively for law school exams!

Since most of your friends are probably taking different classes, their finals schedule will be completely different than yours – thus the need to make your own! Your study schedule needs to emphasize the most important elements of studying for law school finals: finishing your outlines, reviewing/memorizing your outlines, and taking practice exams.
One Month Until Law School Exams: How to Study

The fact patterns tend to be long and incorporate many different issues, generally focusing on more grey areas that prompt you to interpret existing law. This is why it is important for you to focus on learning the rules taught during the semester and then applying them to unfamiliar fact patterns. In this post, we tell you how to do that!
