Law School Hints and News

Help Yourself Reflect and Plan by Keeping a Journal

Thinking about what has happened during the day and writing about it can help you in a variety of ways. Keeping a journal has been found to encourage mental wellbeing and boost writing skills. Reflecting on the day also helps you prepare for what will be coming tomorrow. After writing about what you have experienced, create lists of personal and work related items you would like to accomplish the next day. By creating a list of the top things that you need to accomplish, and working on them one at a time, you can prioritize your goals and put your energy into the tasks that will provide the most gains while shutting out distractions.

Monthly Showcase


Happy New Year! In April, we celebrate National Library Week. As librarians, we are constantly looking for new ways to support you in your scholarly work. Check out our numerous research guides, or take a look at some of the study aids we've highlighted below. 
If you would like to check out any of these books, please ask the circulation staff to place a hold on it for you, and you will receive it at the end of the month.
