I don’t know why it still surprises me to see students at the reference desk who are working on papers or cramming for exams at the very last minute, but it does. I wonder how these types of students will cope with law practice, which in my experience, required much more time management than law school did. I am mulling how I can include, more directly, some time management training into my legal research course.
Here are some resources that may be of use to those wanting to teach time management and students who need to think about how to be better at it:
