What is the most effective way to study in law school?

I've been given lots of conflicting advice about how one should approach the study of law. While I know the hoary old advice that one should do whatever works best for oneself holds true, I hope that the collective wisdom of former law students has more insight to offer than that!

So I've heard that briefing cases is useless, but I've tried the 'LEEWS' method of reducing each case to a single legal premise to limited success (FWIW, my law school is known for its 'theoretical' bent). I've also tried flashcards (primarily using Anki), question-driven notes, etc but I'm still trying to feel my way around. If you have done well in law school using some sort of method/approach to studying law, please do share your tips here! Thank you in advance.
