Every law student considers the question of how early to start preparing for the bar exam. If you’re a 1L, should you worry about it? If you’re a 3L, have you waited too long? You can ask four different lawyers this question and get nine different answers. Some will tell you that you should not even think about the bar until you take a bar prep course and some will tell you that you ought to choose your law school electives based around the bar subjects.
But the best answer to this question is probably that you ought to start your bar prep as early as you possibly can by learning how to do legal writing clearly and concisely.
