This question was raised to me in a lecture I did in March at Loyola Law School in Chicago (as part of Greenhorn Legal’s 3L Bootcamp). The student asked for advice about studying for the bar while balancing family commitments (children, caring for a parent, etc.). It was such a good question, I thought I would talk about it here.
Balancing Family Responsibilities and Bar Studying
I know students who have struggled with this — balancing family commitments with studying for the bar. The bar is a time where you want to be selfish and make studying a priority; however, life doesn’t always allow for that.
So what do you do?
