What I Tell My Ethics Students

8 Feb

“It’s the questions we can’t answer that teach us the most. They teach us how to think. If you give a man an answer, all he gains is a little fact. But give him a question and he’ll look for his own answers.”

MPRE Exam Tomorrow

16 Aug

Wish me luck! Tomorrow morning I set off for the University campus where I will be taking the Multi-state Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE). This test is required by all of the states for people who want to practice as attorneys and it tests your ethical knowledge of the law.  This means it is going to ask me a bunch of convoluted questions that basically come down to: “Do I Cheat My Client” and the general answer of “Not Usually.”  Unfortunately law school tests are notorious for employing confusion tactics.  For example, the law says you have to have a written agreement to do something, an oral agreement won’t work. The question says “there was an agreement, can you act”. Well, that’s depends on whether it was written or oral, but none of those are an option.  Blech! I hate those questions!  Anyway, I have to make a certain score (it varies from state to state) so I’m off to study some more! I’d appreciate some helpful prayers!


BTW: I will be selling a pdf version of my MPRE outline after tomorrow for $5.  It’s less than 20 pages (I’ll let you know the exact number) and should have all the need to know info.  Let me know if you’re interested! It’s also great for Professional Responsibility classes 🙂
