When you’re studying and it’s time to focus on bar exam essay questions, where do you turn?
Do you comb through a hodgepodge of Google results, looking for a decent example?
Or do you focus on learning essay tips, and give up on practicing?
(Quick aside: We’re big advocates of combining the right strategies with the right amount of practice—because practicing with incorrect tactics will ingrain less-than-helpful habits!)
To help make your essay practice more efficient and effective, the BarMD team created EssayRx, our brand-new database of past bar exam essays.
But it’s more than a simple database.
It’s an arsenal of issue-spotting checklists + selected answers.
Because just practicing without evaluating your performance on issue-spotting likely isn’t a robust enough strategy to pass.
Of course, you’re also invited to tap into our test-taking toolbox in our shop, which features everything from self-guided materials to closely working with one of our Bar Specialists. You can always reach out to us if you’re not sure which program or level of intensity is right for you.
Now available: California Bar essays. Coming soon: UBE essays.
