Law school requires a different approach to succeed in than undergraduate. During law school, time will be a valuable commodity due to the increased need to balance your life, studies, and to maintain your health with exercise, nutritious food, and sleep. Taking a few minutes to schedule your activities on the daily, weekly, monthly, and semester levels can help you keep organized, reduce stress, and make you more efficient overall. Laying out a schedule will also allow you to set incremental goalposts for projects so that you can pace yourself and avoid being overwhelmed if project deadlines overlap. Having a schedule that includes project goalposts will also help you recover and reorganize your efforts when unexpected events occur.
This September, the Library's physical display highlights the Judge Advocate General program of the U.S. military.
