Academic Success Tip - Outlining

How are your course outlines coming along?  By now, you should have enough information in each course to begin outlining.  Then, you want to add to your outlines regularly – preferably every week or every other week.  Remember that your outlines will be your primary study aids for exams.  Once you have a good outline for a segment of the course, your class notes and case briefs will no longer be your focus for that part of the material.  If you missed the outlining workshop this week, you can review the presentation online at the Academic Success webpage http://www.law.louisville.edu/academics/academic-success.  If you have any questions, please stop by the Academic Success Office (Room 212).
