I know the February Bar Exam is coming up on us pretty quick (and July is terrifyingly closing in), so I wanted to have a post dedicated to Bar Exam tips. I thought I would share a couple of things that helped me, and I want to encourage all of you to share at least one tip for fellow bar examinees on what is helping you do well.
Tips included could be on:
- Preparing for the bar
- Taking the Exam
- Handling Stress. . . .
Anything that is helping you in your efforts!
For those of you who already took the bar, we’d love for you to participate as well!
My tip of the day (I’ll add more later 😛 )
When you are doing the Performance Tests, the first step is to copy the law from the exam onto your document. Tidy it up, throw in any more in-depth notes on the law you feel are relevant, and sort it out into the elements. I like to really space out each element of the law so I can see that they are separate.
Then read the facts and start pasting the facts in under the applicable portion of the law. If a fact goes into more than one element, that’s fine. It looks messy, but you have time later to go back and smooth it out. I found this to be the fastest and simplest method. I always finished the PT portion way earlier than the timer!
