effect of writing exercises on exam performance

A recently published article discusses whether law students do better on exams when they are given the opportunity to practice beforehand, via writing exercises and other techniques. The not-so-surprising answer is “Yes.” For details, see Andrea A. Curcio, Gregory Todd Jones, & Tanya M.

Legal Educ. 195 (2007).
