8 Days to the Bar Exam: Keep Your Bar Exam Day Schedule

Today marks 8 days to the bar exam. Hopefully, this weekend, you caught up on any sleep you have been missing. You need to be physically well and fit. You need to be sharp on the days of the bar exam and you can’t be smart when you are exhausted. Keep that in mind this week. If you need to take a cat nap, go ahead and take it. Meanwhile, keep on your bar exam schedule. Start studying at 9 am for a 3 hour stretch. Take an hour break and study again for another 3 hour stretch. It will be up to you whether you want to study longer. If you feel you need to, go ahead and review your notes or essays at night, but don’t study night and day. You will only tire yourself out. Try to keep your nerves under control.

Think about today and what you need to accomplish today only. This technique should help you not think too much about next week.

The Skills For Factual Analysis

In every essay question or MBE question, there are different kinds of facts you need to be aware of. You have the background facts and the legally significant facts.

We know that the background facts help put the questions into context and makes for a more coherent fact pattern. But you must recognize the differences between background facts and legally significant facts. Background facts are there to put the whole fact pattern together. But do not mistake legally significant facts for just background noise. You must be able to see and understand those legally significant facts that enable you to trigger issues in your mind. For example, if the fact pattern reads, “defendant screamed and called the plaintiff stupid”, you are probably looking at a legally significant fact that should trigger your issue of defamation or even negligent infliction of emotional distress. You can then key into the issue presented, writing down all the elements of defamation or NIED, making sure that you blend the elements of defamation with the facts you just read. This is critical reading in a nutshell.

These skills make you a better test taker and you will be successful in finding your issues for discussion. Don’t ever just skim the words or read the fact pattern like you would a novel. This will not help you find your legally significant facts.

Practice Your Timing

We all know that you must complete your essays or MBE in that specific 3 hour window. If you have not done so yet, it is time to practice your timing. You must be able to sustain that pace.

As you practice, keep that 3 hour pace in mind. It is imperative that you finish all questions. You do not want to short-change any essay or MBE question. You do not want to leave any questions unanswered or unread and lose valuable points. As you know, even 1 point or 2 points can mean the difference between passing and failing.

How do you build up your time and accuracy? In the beginning of this process, start with doing an essay or two (depending on the length of time you get from your state for your essays), or a block of MBE questions for 1 hour. Then increase those essays, MBE to 2 hours, then, finally, you should be able to do a set of your state’s essays or the MBE in that 3 hour block of time. In addition, thrown in a complete MPT set to work on, if your state tests the MPT.

You must get comfortable and condition yourself to sitting for 3 hours, working on MBE or essay questions or the MPT, without losing your focus or concentration. In these last couple of weeks, prior to the bar exam, you should be working on 3 hour blocks for the MBE, essays and MPT.

2 Weeks to the Bar Exam

You have 2 weeks until the bar examination. Instead of spending the day getting nervous about the time, concentrate on what you have left to do.

By this time, you should have pretty much memorized as much black letter law as you can cram into your brain. It is now time to put away the books and stop studying the law.

What you need to do in these final 2 weeks to prepare yourself for the bar exam is to practice, practice, practice. You are now familiar with your state test and the MBE questions and what to expect from the bar exam.

Try to do an essay or two every day, testing yourself on a variety of subjects that you know your state tests. Do the essays under test conditions. Once you finish your essay under time constraints, spend an equal amount of time reading your essay and comparing it to the model answer. Read for comprehension, also. There might be a point of law that you did not know that you can learn from reading the model answer.

For those states who have the UBE, and California or who have performance tests, you also must include taking the time to do the performance test also. Try doing 1 performance test every other day. This way you can probably get 5 or 6 performance tests in to your practice sessions prior to the bar exam. On the days you do not do a performance test, practice your essays.

In between the essays and performance tests, you also need to work on questions for the Multistate. Try to get in at least 50-100 MBE questions per day, if you can. This way you can really be sharp when exam time comes.

Don’t waste the time to panic, but do take the time to practice. You will be more prepared than ever if you follow this schedule.

The Essay Writer

There are many types of essay writers, but here are the most common categories:

All facts and no law: These writers just regurgitate the facts without legal analysis. All law and no facts: These writers just tell us the law, without blending the facts. No knowledge of the rule definitions: These writers do not know the black letter law. No knowledge of factual analysis: These writers do not blend the law with the factual analysis.

Where do you stand on this list? Make sure you know the answer, because your job, right now and up to the bar exam is to correct your essay writing and turn your weakness into a strength.

Most states want you to write an IRAC type of essay. You want to identify the issue, set out the complete rule definition, analyze your facts with the law, and then you want to conclude. You can’t go wrong with that simple formula.
