The Essays and The Bar Exam Graders

A survey of bar exam graders found that the single biggest mistake students make is not responding to the call of the question.

Remember to read the call of the question first. Then read the fact pattern with the call of the question in mind. Then you want to read the call of the question again to make sure that you understand what the bar examiners are looking for. Only then, should you start to write your outline and start writing your essay. Before you turn the page to the next essay, read the call of the question one last time to make sure you answered the call of the question completely and thoroughly. Then you can move on to your next essay.

Today Marks 4 Weeks to the Bar Exam

Today marks 1 month to the February bar exam. Today is a good day to think about where you are in terms of your studying. By this time, you should be well into knowing and understanding the law. Of course, there will be areas where you are still weak, but, overall, do you know enough law to make it through the bar exam? If not, hit those review books and try to memorize the law as much as you are able to in the next 4 weeks.

The next 4 weeks are crucial to your run up to the bar exam. Once you have the law down, you need to practice – and practice alot. Go through your practice essays and your MBE questions like the bar exam is tomorrow.

Practicing your essays, MPTs and MBEs will ensure that you know the law and you know how to apply the law. Application of the law will be the difference between passing and failing.

Resist those voices of people who tell you horror stories, or want you to stop studying and power down. Accept that you have 30 days of study ahead of you. In the scheme of your lifetime, the next 30 days is not a lot of time to get yourself ready or to sacrifice to get yourself ready. It’s worth your time to have a lifetime career as a lawyer.

It’s all about getting yourself ready for the best performance of your life in February. Keep your focus.

Happy Studying!!!

Practicing MBE Questions

In order to do well on the MBE, you must know the fine distinctions of the law. You can study those fine distinctions by studying your outlines and then by working on questions.

It is not enough for you to work on the questions, review the answers and then move on. You must understand why you picked the right answer or the wrong answer. That is why you must read the explanation carefully, reading each answer choice explanation, whether right or wrong.

If you missed the question, ask yourself why you missed the question. Did you miss it because you didn’t know the law, didn’t know the facts or didn’t know the “trick” of the question? Sometimes with cursory reading of the fact pattern, you miss certain clues of law, certain facts that now seem important or even a confusion of what actually happened in the fact pattern. Sometimes you misapply the facts to the law.

Analyzing the question and the answer choices will help you understand if there is a pattern to your misses or if there are holes in your analysis.

Have A Progression List for Every Subject

For your essays, you must have a one page progression list for every subject your bar exam covers.

As you know, the pressure to perform well on the essays can be sometimes overwhelming. Some students have told me that on game day, when they open the exam booklet, they sometimes had a brain freeze and nothing would come out of their minds until they calmed down and began the writing process. Having a progression sheet of the major issues of each subject will enable you to recall what you must write out in a certain essay.

Go through these major issues in every topic. Write out a one page outline or progression list and memorize them. Then, on essay day, you can recall your progression list and start writing, knowing that you will not forget any major issues.

Stay Motivated

Along with your belief that you will pass and remaining positive, you must stay motivated. Studying for the bar exam is drudgery at its finest. Day-in and day-out, every day, minutes and hours pass by as you struggle to learn, review and to practice. Sometimes you wonder why you are putting yourself through this misery.

That is why you must stay motivated. What is your incentive to continue studying and to pass the bar exam? You went through 4 years of colleges and the last 3 years going to law school to come to this juncture in your life. Among a desire to do good for others and the love of the law, you went to law school mainly to provide a good living for yourself and/or for your family.

Don’t forget those reasons for why you went to law school, for why you are studying for the bar exam and why you need to pass and become the lawyer you have always wanted to be.

Do not look at it from a longer time perspective – as in, its 5 weeks to the bar exam. Take one day at a time, following your study schedule and be satisfied with the gains you make from day to day. Motivate yourself to get through the material today, not tomorrow. Be happy about the progress you make today only. Then start afresh the next day. You’ll worry about tomorrow, when it comes. Motivation comes in small bites when you are studying for the bar exam.

5 Weeks Until the Bar Exam

There are 5 weeks until the February 2018 bar exam.

Every day you must chip away at the large amount of material, taking manageable bites until you have mastered that bite and go onto the next one. As someone has once said, how do you eat an elephant – with one bite at a time. In other words, take smaller sections of the vast material, learn it and then take another section of the bar exam and learn that section, until, before you know it, you have learned the law, practiced your questions and are ready to sit for the bar exam.

Always stay in the moment of that day, because if you look too far ahead, you will waste precious time worrying about the large amount of material you must learn or how fast the time is ticking before the bar exam.

Taking the bar exam is not a sprint. You cannot do everything in one day. Do not drive yourself to exhaustion thinking that you must skip meals, skip the gym, skip sleeping in order to prepare yourself for the bar exam. You cannot run down your body or your mind. Take regular breaks so that you can come back refreshed and ready to learn.

Remember, it was the tortoise that won the race, and not the hare. And to quote the tortoise, “slowly does it every time”.

Make this your best 5 weeks ever and know that you have put everything on the table to become a lawyer.
