Taking The Bar?

It's that time again; the time when all the recent law school grads start on the two month path toward the bar exam. The trek involves 3-4 hours a day bar review courses and supplemental studying. But you know what? It's much, much better than actually working full-time. But that's a subject for another time.

I recommend reading LWY's post on the topic. For the most part, I agree with his thoughts. There's no reason to go crazy in May. In fact there's no reason to go crazy in June. I don't think everyone needs to follow the paced program, but if you want to do so, knock yourself out. What's important is to realize that you have no chance of remembering anything you learned in May by the time Contracts or Property rolls around. It's just too much material right now. You'll learn everything in July, when you read the outlines over and over again.

So take it easy for the first month of so. By the time you take the simulated MBE, you'll probably know half of what you'll need to know for the bar. And the reality is, you'll spend the next month studying the material and doing all the PMBR and Barbri questions anyway, and that's when the real studying starts.

Been Very Busy

It's been a while since I wrote my last post, and that's not because I'm bored of blogging or out of ideas. On the contrary, I have a lot to write about, but I just don't have the time to actually sit down and write about it.

When I was looking for a job, I had all the time in the world. Now that I'm working and taking New Jersey CLE courses, I have almost no free time and when I do, I'm too tired to even read blogs, so forget about writing or commenting. Tomorrow will be my first non-Yom Tov day off in over a month.

I hope once these classes end in a few weeks, I'll have time to get into a schedule and find time for blogging.
