Superstars Know The Best Way To Focus Is To Take The Occasional Break
A law school superstar lives, breathes, and eats the law, but is sensible enough to take a break every once in a while and do something outside of the realm of law school to keep his or her mind sharp and hungry enough for more law once break time is over.

To rule the realm of law school when your sensibly taken break is over, a law school superstar either arrives at law school an expert in time management, or quickly transforms him or herself into such an expert. A law school superstar quickly realizes that the amount of work he or she faces would overwhelm a typical person, so a law school superstar makes it his or her business to effectively prioritize the workload so that the most important stuff gets taken care of right away, with the less important stuff taking a back seat. Most law school superstars make connections with more experienced law students who can help them determine how to prioritize their workloads.
Superstars Keep Shining Even During Their Breaks From School
In addition to performing at the top of their game in their assignments and in the classroom, law school superstars are always on the lookout for their next great opportunity to gain exposure to the practice of law outside the classroom. Law school superstars don’t work at Starbucks over their breaks, but instead have used their time management skills during the year to find the time to reflect on how best to utilize their time away from school. Of course, they will schedule some fun to keep their minds refreshed just as they do during the school year, but during their times of reflection, they will have discovered the highest caliber internships and clerkships available to them. And, being law school superstars, they will have applied for these opportunities early and secured them handily. In this way, a law school superstar can smoothly make the transition from superstar law student to superstar lawyer once the juris doctorate is in hand.
