Other than the injurious effects of the COVID-19 (Sars-CoV-2) pandemic to the world’s economic and public health systems, what could be more dreading to law students than being unproductive and disheveled during their lock down or quarantine days?
Trust me, I know the feeling. I’ve been battling disorganization and lack of motivation since day 1 of my life as a working law student.

Hence, it is always important to devise a way to remedy your situation.

My weekly readings plan would look something like this:
