If you are still job hunting in different states, this may not be possible for you, but many students at this point will know where they plan to sit for the bar exam (especially in huge states like California).
Bar Exam Toolbox Blog
One of the most challenging things for a law student is deciding which bar exam provider is right for you. And there are more options than you may think (both in type of instruction/support and also price).
Join the Bar Exam Toolbox — and tons of other great people — for a Twitter discussion on the topic! This is going to be a constructive discussion about different prep options for the bar exam (since we know different students have different needs).
On Wednesday, August 29th, at 8:00 pm (Eastern)/5:00 pm (Pacific), we’ll talk about how you can choose the best provider for you (for both first time takers and bar exam repeaters).
It’s a great group, including many special guests such as @BarExamTutor, @BarWrite, @CelebrationBar, @KaplanBarReview, @MultistateDigest, @ThemisBar and old friends, @Barexammind, @LawLifeBalance, @AmicusTutoring and @GirlsGuidetoLS.
We’d love to have you join us!
How Does This Work?
Know your graduation requirements.
Each school is different, and it is likely you will have no problem completing everything for graduation. However, it is still important to break out that student handbook and make sure you have a plan to get everything done. Still unclear on what the requirements are? That is what the school registrar is for. Stop by the office and ask!
Unit requirements or writing requirements may sneak up on you during your third year. You don’t want a writing requirement or unit deficit to stand in the way of graduation!
One of the great things about the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (“MPRE” also known as the “ethics bar”) is that you can use the study period to test out different bar review options. Some providers offer free programs so you can try them out and hopefully return for bar prep help at a later date.
One of these programs is BarMax. BarMax is an online bar review provider that can be purchased through the iTunes store. BarMax offers a free download of their MPRE coursework so you can see if BarMax’s programs work for you.
I wanted to make sure we posted something on the blog today for those students who are finishing up Day 1 of the bar exam. This is typically the writing day (or the first of the writing days if your test is three days). I have gotten a few phone calls and emails from students feeling good and bad about what happened.
But no matter how you felt about today, it is important to keep on going and get pumped up for your next exam day. [Read more…] about Pep Talk for Day 2: Keep Calm and Carry On
I wanted to help you get started with this process by putting together a packing list for bar studiers.
