The February 2017 Bar Exam: Be Definitive in Your Essay Answers


Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California. Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

Lawyers are always confident and definitive, even if they have a weak argument (and they know it). When you write out your essays, be definitive about your answer and your conclusion. Even if you are wrong, you may be able to get a point or two because your argument and conclusion were well stated. The bar examiners have the ability to give you points for your conclusion even if wrong, as long as it is well reasoned and the analysis flows.

Don’t forget that most cases you have read in law school (and cases you will work on when you become a lawyer) are in the gray area – a well-reasoned argument will give you a victory for your client. There are no smoking guns in the practice of law. There usually are no right or wrong argument to make. As a lawyer, you just hope that the judge or jury sees that your argument is better than you opponent. It is how you, as a lawyer, interpret the facts of your case. This is similar to your bar exam essays.

Don’t be wishy-washy in your analysis or your conclusion. It makes lawyers unhappy to have to wade through either-or type of arguments and bar exam graders will be reluctant to give you points. You’ve probably learned in law school to put “probably” or “may” in your conclusion, i.e “Dan will probably be found guilty.” You will not do that as a lawyer and do o not do that in the bar exam – write, “Dan will be found guilty.” If you really don’t know the answer and you are reluctant to commit, then use words like, “likely”, i.e. “Dan will likely be found guilty.” It is must more effective than probably or possibly.

Remember, write like a lawyer – be confident and definitive in your bar exam answer.

The February 2017 Bar Exam: Have A Progression List for Every Subject


Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California. Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

For your essays, you must have a one page progression list for every subject your bar exam covers.

As you know, the pressure to perform well on the essays can be sometimes overwhelming. Some students have told me that on game day, when they open the exam booklet, they sometimes had a brain freeze and nothing would come out of their minds until they calmed down and began the writing process. Having a progression sheet of the major issues of each subject will enable you to recall what you must write out in a certain essay.

Go through these major issues in every topic. Write out a one page outline or progression list and memorize them. Then, on essay day, you can recall your progression list and start writing, knowing that you will not forget any major issues.

The February 2017 Bar Exam: 5 Weeks Until the Bar Exam


Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California. Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

There are 5 weeks until the February 2017 bar exam.

Every day you must chip away at the large amount of material, taking manageable bites until you have mastered that bite and go onto the next one. As someone has once said, how do you eat an elephant – with one bite at a time. In other words, take smaller sections of the vast material, learn it and then take another section of the bar exam and learn that section, until, before you know it, you have learned the law, practiced your questions and are ready to sit for the bar exam.

Always stay in the moment of that day, because if you look too far ahead, you will waste precious time worrying about the large amount of material you must learn or how fast the time is ticking before the bar exam.

Taking the bar exam is not a sprint. You cannot do everything in one day. Do not drive yourself to exhaustion thinking that you must skip meals, skip the gym, skip sleeping in order to prepare yourself for the bar exam. You cannot run down your body or your mind. Take regular breaks so that you can come back refreshed and ready to learn.

Remember, it was the tortoise that won the race, and not the hare. And to quote the tortoise, “slowly does it every time”.

Make this your best 5 weeks ever and know that you have put everything on the table to become a lawyer.

The February 2017 Bar Exam: Stay Motivated


Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California. Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

Along with your belief that you will pass and remaining positive, you must stay motivated. Studying for the bar exam is drudgery at its finest. Day-in and day-out, every day, minutes and hours pass by as you struggle to learn, review and to practice. Sometimes you wonder why you are putting yourself through this misery.

That is why you must stay motivated. What is your incentive to continue studying and to pass the bar exam? You went through 4 years of colleges and the last 3 years going to law school to come to this juncture in your life. Among a desire to do good for others and the love of the law, you went to law school mainly to provide a good living for yourself and/or for your family.

Don’t forget those reasons for why you went to law school, for why you are studying for the bar exam and why you need to pass and become the lawyer you have always wanted to be.
Do not look at it from a longer time perspective – as in, its 5 weeks to the bar exam. Take one day at a time, following your study schedule and be satisfied with the gains you make from day to day. Motivate yourself to get through the material today, not tomorrow. Be happy about the progress you make today only. Then start afresh the next day. You’ll worry about tomorrow, when it comes. Motivation comes in small bites when you are studying for the bar exam.

The February 2017 Bar Exam: Positivity Will Determine Success or Failure


Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California. Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

Positivity will determine whether you pass or fail. You must stay positive as you prepare for the exam bar. Those who think that this is only a small bump in the road and attack their exam with confidence and positivity, will end up being successful on the bar exam. Those who don’t truly, absolutely think they will pass the bar exam will become a self-fulfilling prophesy of doom. A depressed attitude will drag you down like nothing else will – even if you know the material.

You can either be someone who passes the bar exam or someone who doesn’t. It’s your choice to make. Tell yourself every day that you will pass the bar exam and believe it.

The February 2017 Bar Exam: Answer the Call of the Question in the Order Given


Bar Professors Provides Private Tutoring for North Carolina, Florida, the MBE, UBE, Texas and California. Sign up for our MBE/Essays Seminars at www.barprofessors.com.

Many bar exam essays have specific issues in the call of the question that sets out what the bar examiners want you to answer. For example, in a torts question, the bar examiners want to know what the causes of actions are for a) Tom, b) Dick and c) Harry.

Each bar exam grader has a rubic that she follows when she grades her batch of essays. The rubic starts with a, then b, then c. Don’t make the bar exam grader’s job harder when she has to hunt for the answer because you started with Harry, then Tom, then Dick.

Your goal is to make it easy for the bar examiner to grade your essay and for you to get the maximum point total as you can get. If the bar examiner can’t find what she is looking for because you have mixed up the order of the call of the question, you may be cheating yourself out of hard-earned points because she can’t find it.

Follow and answer the call of the question exactly as written.
