Examples included in our Law Practice Collection are How To Do More in Less Time: The Complete Guide To Increasing Your Productivity and Improving Your Bottom Line and Coaching For Attorneys: Improving Productivity and Achieving Balance.

The RWU Academic Success Program is a phenomenal resource for learning time management skills. This program provides a comprehensive variety of presentations and workshops which emphasize study skills and exam-taking methods for all first-year students, and individual one-to-one academic counseling sessions for students at all stages of their academic careers.
