Law Student News

Posted on: Jul 21, 2014

If you read this article in our Law Student Brief for July, then you understand why taking notes by hand is important (and better for your brain) than taking notes on a computer. However, when it comes to taking effective notes, things can get tricky without the speed of a keyboard.

The Cornell Method is a way for lawyers and law students to divide their notes so that you have all of the relevant information easily at hand. This article breaks down the Cornell Method and why it is especially useful for lawyers. Add this to your academic toolbox as you prepare for another year of law school and maximize your note-taking!
