A Guide for OneLs–Play a Little
There is no question that law school is tough. And only a couple weeks into the new semester many OneLs are probably somewhat intimidated by the amount of work being assigned. There is a lot of work, but sometimes if you don’t leave yourself time to relax you are a less effective worker anyway.
You will be a more effective student if you make sure to also take some time for yourself, maybe by participating in activities with fellow law students, or maybe just taking a study break to watch a movie. At the very least, take small breaks. It’s often a good idea to set a schedule for yourself–one hour of study, fifteen minutes of play, another hour of study, etc.
