Description

This course will introduce students to the written components of the bar exam in all states-essay questions and performance tests, which together are worth between one-half and two-thirds of the overall score depending on the state. Students will learn effective techniques for reading, outlining, and writing answers and will practice these techniques by taking multiple practice questions under timed, exam-taking conditions during class. Students will receive feedback on their answers through a variety of methods, including at one or more required individual meetings with the professor.

This course has been flagged as a distance education course. This means this class is one in which students are separated from the faculty member or each other (other than specially accommodated students) for more than one-third of the instruction and the instruction involves the use of technology to support regular and substantive interaction among students and between the students and the faculty member, either synchronously or asynchronously.
