In a recent visit to the Florida State University College of Law, former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor offered her views on life post-bench and how students can prepare for law school. One of the most interesting tips O'Connor offered?
Take a speedreading course.
O'Connor credits her speedreading ability with enabling her to handle the enormous workload she faced as a Supreme Court Justice. Regarding the sheer amount of reading required, O'Connor said, “In all interesting jobs, that’s often the case."
I consider myself a relatively fast reader, but I haven't yet learned speedreading. Have any of you used speedreading throughout law school, and would you recommend it to other law students?
