Wednesday, January 16: 6:30 PM – Essay Structure Workshop – L-325:
Bar Exam Graders spend an average of 2-3 minutes reading each of your essays. Those 2-3 minutes will determine whether you will earn a license to practice law. Learn to make your essay grader-friendly so that those minutes count! Added focus this year on self-grading. (Enhanced ALA workshop)
- Food & informal Q&A starts at 6; the workshop starts at 6:30 PM and will last no more than an hour and a half.
- Please bring your computer (if you expect to take the exam using a computer), any essay you have written, OR 2 paper copies of your essay and multiple highlighters of different colors)
- Sign up here so I make sure to bring enough food!
