what you are going to put in your file

o No room for flexability

o The more files you have to open the harder your life is but the longer it is the more inconvient
o Ideal file is 70-100 pages
 Most of the document is covered in the document map
 If something is a long file have a core file with all of your important in one file and the
put all the rest in other files that group certain things
• Ie. 2NC core files in one file
