NBLSA Wishes you the Best of Luck on Finals!!!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Your'e almost there! As you approach studying for finals and preparing to end a successful academic semester we want to ensure you that you have the skills necessary to conquer your exams! Please see a note below from NBLSA National Parliamentarian, Randi Forbes as well as a guide to help you as you determine what learning styles best work for you in preparation for your exams!

 

You've got this! 

 

"Greetings everyone!  I’m Randi Forbes and I am honored and privileged to serve as your National Parliamentarian the 2018-2019 school year.   I’m in my last year of New York Law School’s Two-Year Accelerated Honors Program graduating in 2019.  As we approach the finals season of this semester, we just wanted to encourage all our members in their efforts to excel academically.  Don’t allow yourself to be discouraged by the tasks in front of you.  You know more than you think you do!

 

As you are working to ensure that the information from your outlines, reading assignments, and class notes is synthesized and internalized, we’d like to encourage you not to abandon all the things that have worked for you academically in the past.  Sure, law school is a different experience than what you may be used to.  Sure, your professors may have encouraged traditional outlines.  But there are multiple paths to success.  Dare to do what you know works for you.  If a traditional outline doesn’t work for you, try something else.  Whatever you do, don’t get caught up in the formatting of a traditional outline – no one will see it but you- nor continue outlining up until the night before the exam.  You need time to study the outline!  In discovering or confirming your learning style, please see this chart.  I hope you find it helpful."

 

Kind regards,

 

Ms. Randi Forbes National Parliamentarian | 2018-2019 National Black Law Students Association J.D. Candidate 2019, New York Law School
