Note-Taking System

Postby njlaw » Thu Aug 04, 2011 6:18 pm

As an entering 1L, I was wondering what people recommend for note-taking in class

In undergrad, I almost always took notes by hand, underline readings, and just use that to study for exams. Obviously, with law school though and the need to brief and outline and take class notes, I was wondering if there's more of a need to have a comprehensive, organized system to make that easier and what strategies others have used?
