Does anyone know how many pages an hour law students read/highlight materials? I've heard 15-20 pages an hour, which is usually the amount given per class. I've also heard your first semester it's much longer (15 pages in 2 hours) and then later on it's much faster (15 pages in 45 mins).As for the OP's Q, of course it depends. Most materials I read about a page a minute. If I'm really into it or it's difficult or long, I'm around a page every 3 minutes. Skimming takes less than a minute per page.
