Students sometimes forget that there are things they can do during their 3L year to get ready for the bar exam, whether they are taking the bar exam in February or July. Here are some resources to help you out!
Know your state bar admission requirements
To make sure you get everything done, you need to know which exam you are going to sit for (or if you are planning on sitting for two exams simultaneously).
Get the MPRE out of the way
If you are sitting for the February 2017 bar exam, you should absolutely take the November 2016 MPRE exam. If you are sitting for the July 2017 bar exam, you should also take the November 2016 MPRE. You can also check out our review of BarMax’s MPRE course.
Get your bar admission paperwork together
There can be hours of paperwork associated with getting admitted to the bar. Don’t leave this until the last minute as there can be consequences (even delayed bar admission)!
Know your graduation requirements and be smart about signing up for bar electives
There is a lot of work to be done 3L year. But don’t just get caught up in your ability to take whatever electives you want! Make sure you are going to finish all of your graduation requirements and don’t forget to sign up for some bar-related electives.
