Law School Academic Support Blog

A member of the Law Professor Blogs Network, the Law School Academic Support Blog offers advice for the student regarding various aspects of studying law. While it is not the most prolific or frequently updated of blogs, certain articles on the blog’s front page that contain suggestions about outlining, test anxiety, and even getting enough rest seem especially pertinent at this time of year.

Now for a Virtual Study Break...

As a virtual animal, I’m partial to taking my breaks in the virtual universe. It occurred to me that, while thousands of law students peer down at course outlines, the crew of the Space Shuttle is spending today getting ready to rewire the international space station while peering down at the planet. They--like many of us--are scheduled to return to Earth on December 21. Escape for a few minutes and enjoy some of the best photos of the Earth taken from the Shuttle, including a night view of New York City and Long Island. This page is brought to you by the Lunar and Planetary Institute, a scientific forum and research institute that supports the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and shares their explorations with the world.

Please note that there is a puzzle outside the main level computer lab. It is there for your enjoyment. Take a quick break from study and contribute to completing the puzzle before the end of exams.
