Is your Academic Support Program responsible at all for Bar Examination preparation?
If so, you may want to read (and pass along to your students) "Brace Yourself for the Bar Exam," an article appearing in a 2003 issue of Student Lawyer Magazine.
In the article, Cynthia L. Cooper (author, journalist, playwright) not only recounts bar exam horror stories ("Suddenly a woman starts galloping down the aisles, flailing her arms, yelling, 'I am a covenant running with the land!'"), but offers tips and germane quotes from bar takers, and bar coaches.
One bar taker, she tells us, awoke in the middle of the night before the exam screaming, "Which way did the robbers go?"
Our friends Laurie Zimet (Hastings), Rich Litvin (Quinnipiac), and others are quoted in this still pertinent article. (djt)
