Hi Alishajon

This article has a few good points: https://www.lawyer-monthly.com/2019/...dy-techniques/

I personally write the names of key cases and principles alongside key facts to help me remember. I also doodle! I seem to remember the drawings better for exams. It is also good practice to consider the key points of each argument if reading cases (along with case history).

Try and work out what will help you best remember - poems, acronyms, colour coded paragraphs, doodles- use whatever will help you.

Hope that helps!

And just to add, you don't mention it but if you are with the University of Law already, check out the study skills sessions- they are really helpful. You'll find them on Elite.
