The fact that you are a 1L or 2L doesn't mean that you can't be thinking ahead to bar exam preparation. And if you're a 3L, you definitely need to be planning for the bar! It's important to keep bar prep on your radar throughout law school, so you will be ready when the big day arrives. Here are some tips for preparing successfully, whatever year you are!

In this episode we discuss:

  • The biggest mistake that law students make when thinking about bar exam preparation
  • Handling the bar exam "culture of fear"
  • Preparing for the bar exam as a 3L
  • Getting the most for your money with bar prep
  • Tips for selecting a bar review provider
  • Understanding what bar prep options are offered at your school
  • The courses we took and didn't take that could have helped with the bar exam
  • What you need to do ahead of time (bar admission paperwork, accommodations, saving money)
  • Bar preparation for 1Ls: What you should and should not do your first year
  • Taking the MPRE
  • How to work on your study skills now so you will be prepared for the bar exam

Good luck on the bar!

This goal of this episode is to give you – the new listener – an overview of who Lee and Alison are, how we met and started our various projects, why we went to law school, and what we did there. We also talk about different legal jobs we had, over the summers and full-time. Finally, we give you a very quick rundown of our various businesses, and how we can help – whether you’re a current law student, just thinking about law school, or already working as a lawyer.
