Law School Hints and News

Practice Can Make Perfect

Picking up a new skill or learning a new concept takes time and practice. However, dedicating hours of practice to something does little without a plan for improvement.

To make the most of your time, you must create a feedback system that allows you to correct the mistakes you make and set reasonable goals for growth. Making a variety making mistakes and adjusting for them can streamline you mastering a skill or topic, so use them rather than fear them.
