Learning Style Inventories

Research into learning theories has revealed that each of us has different learning preferences. Some students prefer to learn new material through reading, while others prefer to listen to a speaker, or learn best through pictures or graphical representations of material. Law school requires you to learn an incredible amount of new material and understanding your preferences can help you.

There are several learning style inventories available; most take about 20-30 minutes to complete and provide you with a set of suggestions tailored to your individual learning preferences. Links:
