The top five mistakes to avoid on the bar exam

These tips come to us from the BarWrite Blog:

  • Mistake Number 1: Rushing through reading the interrogatories [the "call of the question"] and the facts. 
  • Mistake Number 2: Stating your conclusions without showing your reasoning.
  • Mistake Number 3: Doing an issue-spotting demonstration instead of applying the law to solve the client's problem.
  • Mistake Number 4: Just reciting the facts of the case.Do NOT just tell the story.
  • Mistake Number 5. This is the clincher: Losing track of time. 

Read the full details on each of these tips here.
