Welcome back to the Law School Toolbox podcast! Today, in an episode from our "Quick Tips" series, we're talking about a seemingly radical approach to note-taking: drawing your notes. This technique may especially appeal to you if you are a visual learner or like to draw or sketch concepts.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How drawing helps with memorization
  • Developing a "visual toolkit" for law school classes
  • Summarizing the facts of a case with a series of images
  • Specific shorthand symbols and drawings commonly used by law students
