I've been fiddling around with onenote and this seems like a pretty good way to organize things. I'm looking for the simplest and most efficient way possible.


The best way to do this is to find something that works for you and makes sense in your mind. I tried copying what xeoh did last year, but found that too cumbersome. I ended up doing:

Semester -> Class -> Case Briefs/Class Readings and Topic Notes

I ended up using my topic notes as my outlines, but our exams were (with one exception) open book and open notes..

Also - chill out! If you're a current 0L, this is going to be the last chance you have at relaxing for a LONG time - law school is incredibly stressful and demanding, and if you do well enough to have summer jobs, you may not have a real vacation until after you take the bar exam.

Enjoy your time off - seriously.
