Early Start Bar Study Group

Want an early start on your bar exam study?  Skipped Wills?  Need a refresher on Intentional Torts?  ASP has just the thing for you!

Thursday (11/30) is another double-header.  At the request of those who attended last week, in the normal time slot (1:00 – 3:00) we’ll write a wills essay (February 2017, Essay 11).  In the second slot (3:00 – 5:00) we’ll write an intentional torts essay from February 2013 – question 7 (the same one the Saturday group wrote on the 18th – also similar to one of the essays on the ALA final).

You can find the essays here if you want a sneak preview.

Thursday 11/30 @1:00 (Wills Essay); @3:00 (Intentional torts Essay)

Early Start Bar Study Group – Sunday @ 3 PM

The Early Start Bar Study Group is meeting on Sunday this week at 3 PM this week in L-325.

The essay for the week is from the February 2007 bar exam, Question3 – Ohio Civil Procedure.

The study group is designed for people planning to take the bar exam in February or July, but others are welcome to join.  (You’ll all be taking the bar exam at some point, and before then the process of writing a bar exam essay is similar to writing a law school essay.)

Early Start Bar Study Group

Want an early start on your bar exam study?  Skipped Secured Transactions?  ASP has just the thing for you!

This week we’ll do a quick overview of the secured transactions concepts needed to write an answer for the February 2013 secured transaction Ohio Bar Exam question, and then we’ll write it together.  You can find it here if you want a sneak preview (bottom drop-down box – look for the February 2013 exam, question 8)

Thursday @ 1:00 or Saturday @ 10:30 AM in L-325.

Early Start Bar Study Group

The Thursday group will NOT meet this week (I am out of the office through Friday).

Hope you can join us Saturday at 10:30 AM in L-325!

We’ll do a property essay this week.

All are welcome.

The group is intended primarily as a subject matter refresher, and an essay-writing skills practice for people preparing for the February (or July) bar exams.  But you also might find it useful if you still haven’t quite gotten the hang of IRAC or CRAC, how to use the facts to help sort out which rules to recite, or how to use an outline to help you organize your hypo answers.

Questions (or to be added to the early start website):  Nancy Reeves, Assistant Dean for Academic Success.  nlr22@uakron.edu
