Go with the Flow: Using Flow Charts to Complement Your Studying

For visual learners, like me, incorporating flow charts into your studying can be a valuable addition to your exam preparation. Flow charts can help you see how elements of a particular rule fit together, and they can help you see a logical progression of other elements, questions, or issues that might need to be examined.

For example, for kinesthetic learners, creating flow charts to map out the law can help them understand the relationship of the concepts they’re learning rather than learning the concepts in isolation of one another. For auditory learners, students can benefit from flow charts by reading out loud a particular path in a flow chart to understand how a particular issue can be resolved from start to end. And, unsurprisingly, logical learners will likely appreciate the structured approach of examining legal concepts contained in flow charts.
