Last call! Any students who want to attend the LBA IP section meeting in the Law School on Tuesday, the 13th, should RSVP to Dean Cross no later than noon on Monday. The meeting is a chance for you to meet local intellectual property attorneys, as well as hear presentations on interesting IP topics by our own Professor Smith and 3L Brenton Stanley.
Those students who have already indicated they plan to attend need not RSVP again.
Congratulations to Gina Young who is the winner of a $10 gift card to Burger King and a UofL Law decal. Please stop by Dean Ballard's office today before 4:00 p.m. to claim your prizes.
Our daily prize drawings are now finished. But, now and then, just to make sure you keep checking the Docket, we'll draw for a prize recipient and post it in the Docket. So keep reading -- for prize notices now and then and for other important daily news!
Congratulations to Jonathon Raymon, who won the drawing for the lavish and glitzy prize given to one student who attended the first yoga session. The drawing was overseen by representatives from one of the Big Four accounting firms. And it's a good thing the representatives were there, as some non-students tried to cheat by signing their names to the list (Dean Duncan, this means you ..).
Jonathon wins a UofL Law School polo shirt. He can pick it up in Dean Ballard's office.
Do you ever feel that you have put in time but do not understand or recall anything that you heard in class or read in your casebook? Do you ever “zone out” during class or study time? One of the most essential study skills is the ability to focus. Here are some general tips that you might want to consider:
- Get at least 7 hours of sleep per night so that your brain cells can be ready to work productively for you.
- Take short 5-minute breaks after every hour of studying.
- Take a longer 30-minute break after you have been studying for 3 or 4 hours.
- Take a quick break if you completely lose your focus and cannot get it back with more active study strategies: asking questions; reciting out loud; talking with someone else about the material.
- Find a setting where you can study without interruptions or distractions.
- Have all of your supplies and study materials gathered and ready for use before you sit down to study.
- Eat a light snack before studying to assuage hunger pangs: an apple; a box of raisins; a handful of nuts; a granola bar.
- Use ice water to keep you alert instead of coffee or sodas.
