Expert Learning For Law Students
Expert Learning for Law Students is designed to help law students build the analytical skills necessary to succeed in law school, on the bar exam, and in law practice. Based on the findings of hundreds of educational studies, this book reveals how successful law students and lawyers plan, monitor, and implement their work. It also explains how experts reflect on their learning processes and identify any necessary adjustments to those processes, and it provides detailed guidance regarding individual student personality types and learning styles. The book includes more than 50 charts and graphics as well as numerous examples of how to select and implement 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. Expert Learning, accompanied by a teacher's manual, has been successfully used as part of law school introductory programs and in academic support programs. It can also be used by individual students as a study guide or aid.
