Extended Bar Prep

Study sessions this week – in Room 325:

  • Wednesday (today!) 3:00 – 5:oo PM – Constitutional Law
  • Saturday 10:30 – 12:30 – Property

It’s never too early to start studying for the bar exam – everyone is welcome! (Even if you’re not ready to think about studying for the bar exam, it’s a chance to master/reinforce issue spotting and good essay exam style writing.)

This year we’re doing a mix of MEE esays (for the UBE) and Ohio essays (for the Ohio bar exam). Both Con Law and Property are essay subjects on both exams.

Reminder: Anki Flash Card Party

Anki is particularly well-suited for learning rules if you are just starting your law school career. A little extra investement of time as you go through each class will make life much easier in a few short years when you start studying for the bar exam.

We’ll also explore short-cuts to help if you’re a 3L student just realizing how much you’ve forgotten since your 1L year!

The Anki Flash Card Party is an introduction to the Anki spaced repetition application. You will have less stress during the formal bar prep period if you can develop a good set of flash cards and work during the semester to start packing rules into your long-term memory.

Anki Flash Card Party (save the date)

September 28, 2019 – 2:00 PM

Spaced repetition is a fantastic way to avoid the need to relearn everything when you start to prepare for the bar exam, and to cut down on the jitters about having to memorize so many things in such a short study period.

The theory behind spaced repetition is that you refresh your memory just as you’re about to forget something. That timing helps you move content from your short-term memory to your long-term memory.

Anki is a website/computer/mobile app that implements spaced repetition. There are other apps out there – but Anki is the most powerful one I’ve found (and it is virtually free). I’ll give you instructions ahead of time about downloading and installing the software, so we can start right in learning how to create a variety of flash cards.
