Law School Hints and News

During law school, you have to absorb a lot of information to form a high level of understanding of each subject. To master a subject, find a method that allows you to learn the subject’s main concepts from their basic ideas and then work your way to understanding them to the point where you can adapt the concepts to new questions or situations that you face.

Putting hours into studying can yield great results, but you want to get the most out of the time you invest. Doing nothing but working on a task for hours can lead to burnout, physical discomfort, and stress. To get the most out of the time that you put into any task it has been found that cycles of 52 minutes of focused work followed by 17 minutes of a break that includes physical activity allow you to be the most productive. If you are studying at home, during your 17-minute breaks, take the opportunity to do little things such as cleaning dishes, dusting, folding clothes, or working out. Being productive during your downtime will allow your ‘breaks’ to be guilt free and will help your well-being too!
