Studying, Outlining & Finals

Posted by Library Blog on 11/17/2015 at 11:38 AM

It’s beginning to feel a lot like finals. The end of the semester is always filled with studying and outlining and stress. The Legal Beagle has several suggestions for ways to cope with the end of the semester crunch time:

1. Use the library’s study resources:

If you prefer online study aids, try the CALI lessons available at http://www.cali.org/.

If you prefer print resources, the Law Library’s staff has prepared guides to the major study aids in the library’s collection. The guides are by subject area, keyed to the curriculum and available at http://law.rwu.edu/library/research/study-aids.

2. Reserve a Study Room:

There are twelve small rooms which can be used for study and/or audio/video review. Three of the rooms are equipped for audio/visual use. Use of these rooms is governed by a room reservation policy which covers advance reservations, room renewals, cancellations, and consequences of the misuse of rooms. More information about reserving a study room can be found here

3. Find a Reflective Space on Campus:

RWU has many areas (indoor and outdoor) which can be used as a study space or a study break space for quiet reflection. A virtual tour of these places can be found here.

4. Take an Exercise Break:

The RWU Campus Recreation Center offers exercise equipment and a variety of group exercise classes to engage your body. Exercise, including walking, sports, and other fun physical activities, can help you maintain a healthy mind body balance.

5. Check out our LawGuide:

The library’s guide for Stress Management, Mindfulness and Wellness provides information and links to help you manage stress in serious ways and not-so-serious ways.
