Do you walk into class feeling confident but walk out feeling lost? Are you confused about what you are supposed to take away from classroom discussions? Does it feel like no matter how hard you work and prepare, you cannot seem to figure out where your professors have hidden the ball? In this workshop, Professor Blair will aim to help you to analyze and synthesize cases; take structured notes that will help you maximize your comprehension and prepare you for outlining later in the semester; and think about the different learning processes simultaneously taking place in each of your courses. By the end of the workshop, you will hopefully feel a little more certain about your bearings in a law school classroom.
