Congratulations! You are beginning your third week of classes. For those of you who are new to law school, things should be getting into a routine now. For those of you who are returning to law school, you probably feel like you never left because it is all so familiar.
You now have a long weekend that you can look forward to. Use this time wisely to improve your future workload as a law student. Three days can be a blessing for law students who have gotten behind in their reading or who are feeling sleep-deprived. This week's tips will provide suggestions for getting the most out of this weekend.
Tip 1: If you are still getting settled in to your apartment or home, try to finish all of those tasks by the end of the weekend. Finish unpacking boxes. Finish organizing your study area. Finish the final decorating touches. Starting Tuesday morning, you want to make law school your priority. Even if you are settled in your home, take advantage of the long weekend to get your errands run and to get your space in order.
