An Unintended Benefit of Law School?

As I've been reading many articles and books in preparation for my last PhD field exam this Wednesday, I've noticed I am retaining a lot more of what I'm reading that I used to. Seems like I'm also picking up many things from this material that I didn't when I read them the first time.

I don't know if this is because I've learned more economics since then, because I'm looking at it with fresh eyes, or because reading case books every day for law school is turning me into a better reader? I think it is a mixture of all of the above.

It certainly does seem like my reading concentration and retention are better since starting law school. Now if only that effect will hold up for a couple more days...
