How does one organize his class work in law school and how does one locate materials when it comes to creating your outline. There are three big sources from which you will be able to gather a wealth of information. You can amass huge knowledge by briefing assigned cases, by taking notes in class from the teachers lectures and by taking notes from the outside reading that you do.

Buy three spiral-bound notebooks for each class, spiral because outlining requires a lot of flipping back and forth and lose pages tend to get misplaced or lost - one for case briefs; one for class notes and the third one for notes from outside sources.

Professors may give you outside assignments-perhaps readings from law review articles, books, or articles in non-legal publications. In addition, if I were confused about something in class, I would often look up the subject in a hornbook or treatise and write notes on what I learned. This outside material proved to be invaluable in helping me understand concepts professors never adequately explained or sped over. This practice of merging information from these three different sources is central to the Law School Success System.

Success Stories

LawCrossing is fantastic! When I am looking for a job, it is the first place I come to. The service is very good and I enjoyed the emails. LawCrossing has more jobs and it is more tailored. Other sites gave a lot of irrelevant results. Your site may have a great algorithm, but it felt like an actual person choosing jobs they felt would be good based on my search. I will always recommend this site!
