Learn "typical lesson" (see example)


So, i have a little experience in memory. I use association to learn new vocabulary word in foreign languages, i use it also for remember things (kind of todo list) etc... I read the classic memory book from Harry Lorayne.
I kow also the locis palace, but it's easy for me to remember this palace.
All this to say, that i have a trained memory in a certain extent but don't know how I can apply in my studies of law.
It's always the same thing: a plan (a summary), information to be related to this plan, and i don't succeed to do it... too much information..

example of my course: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B50UrZQm1ULzQ3FzQ24wNG9rY0U/view?usp=sh...

(sorry it's in french)
Should I learn the plan and for every part give a room of one of my loci palace? And put the information related to this part in the room? But, it doesn't work.. Any idea? Because, mental association and crazy images are the best way to memorize but i really don't see how to appy it at this kind of material
My biggest problem is the precision required, nearly verbatim...

Sorry for my bad english, i'm french, and a big thank for your help!

I can't read french, whichmakes it hard to give you any good advice. There are a lot of people here who can tell you about verbatim learning, I unfortuntely am not one of them.

All I can tell you is that if you want to use a memory palace, see it as a bullet point list. Each loci contains 1 bullet point. A memory palace is some sort of list, you store one bit of information at one loci, and the next you store at the next loci. Learning accordingly might make it a bit easier. Hope that helps you a bit.

You might want to take a look at this law exam example. It's basically an example of what Mayarra wrote.

  1. Break up the text into a list of keywords.
  2. Create images for the keywords.
  3. Place those images in a memory journey.

If you provide an example in English we could give more specific examples, or maybe someone who speaks French will pass by and comment here. :)

I'm Frzench. The example above is nearly perfect.

I memorize 2000 pages for my university Master like that.

I strongly recomand the book of Martinez "Comment avoir une mémoire infaillible" (a lousy name but a good book) to train about synesthesia before investing in Loci . (the book do both and above)
