Academic Planning & Strategy in Advance of the Bar

There are things you can do, starting from 1L year, or even now to make your transition to bar exam study less stressful.

For example,
Should you plan to take a commercial bar prep course (Barbri/Kaplan) and why.
How do you PAY for this stuff?
How do you finance yourself during the months you are studying?
How to structure your course selections after 1L year so youโ€™re not stressed out the semester before you graduate (e.g. death wish = ULW + commercial + secured)

This kind of stuff is what this Fridayโ€™s academic success & bar performance program is about.

AV: I have requested a camera, but can no longer make promises about the program actually being recorded.
LIVESTREAM: Should be available. Will send out the details in a reminder email on Thursday.

The Bail Trap

More on the subject of bail (this year's Intro to Law topic)

nytimes.com Every year, thousands of innocent people are sent to jail only because they canโ€™t afford to post bail, putting them at risk of losing their jobs, custody of their children โ€” even their lives.

The 1L Preparation: A Guide

Surprisingly good advice from ATL: read, brief, do your own outline, consult prof. On supplements: "[m]any students spend too much time looking at all these extra materials for answers, when they could have spent less time getting better answers if they had slowed down, read more carefully, and followed the steps Iโ€™ve listed above. Nothing saddens me more than watching 1Ls with injured backs carrying around secondary materials they do not need, and should not want."

abovethelaw.com Here's why 1Ls should create their own outlines, rather than risk using someone else's.

[08/11/15]   Sign up on TWEN ---> add the ACADEMIC SUCCESS & BAR PERFORMANCE PAGE. Under syllabus, you will find the schedules (1L & 2/3/4L) for Friday workshops.

[07/30/15]   CONGRATULATIONS to our July bar-takers! Looking forward to the bar results in October, when we will have beaten that other school's bar passage!

[07/17/15]   LUNCH AT THE BAR EXAM!!
