Abstract:

"Expert Learning for Law Students is designed to help law students build the learning and analytical skills necessary to succeed in law school, on the bar exam, and in law practice.

It also explains how experts reflect on their learning processes and identify any necessary adjustments to those processes. Detailed guidance regarding individual personality types and learning styles is also provided." "The book includes more than 50 charts and graphics as well as numerous suggestions for selecting and implementing strategies for case reading and case briefing; taking notes; memorizing; managing time, stress and workload; developing legal analysis skills; and preparing for and taking law school examinations. An accompanying workbook includes questions and exercises to assist students in practicing the concepts explained in the text.

It can also be used by individual students as a study guide or aid."--BOOK JACKET.
