Success in Law School (& Beyond)

Posted by Library Blog on 08/26/2016 at 04:01 PM

According to Peter F. Drucker, well-known business and management author, “Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.” This seems like a good motto for any law student, especially those law students who chose to enjoy quiet reflection in the law library!

The featured collection of books displayed on the Reference shelves in the law library is titled Success in Law School (& Beyond). It contains titles to assist new and returning students as they transition from Summer to Fall. These books will help you discover resources in the library’s collection about all things related to law school success, from time management tips to study planning suggestions, as well as more general books about success such as titles on developing your focus and vision.

The books included in the collection contain information about note-taking, inspiration, outlining, leadership, and exam-taking. The library’s LawGuide titled “Success in Law School (and Beyond): The Collection” contains a list of the books on display in addition to online resources to promote law student success. In addition to the LawGuide, the library has a Pinterest page which features the collection.

Finally, the books featured in this collection are just one small rung on the ladder to success. RWU School of Law’s Academic Success Program hosts many events and workshops to encourage and support law student success. The objectives of the Academic Success Program include “helping law students discover their particular needs and learning styles, equipping them with the academic tools they need to meet the challenges of law school with self-assurance, and encouraging them to monitor their own progress as they adjust their study practices to achieve their personal goals.” For more information on RWU School of Law’s Academic Success Program, email Kathy Thompson, Director, at kthompson@rwu.edu.
