An interactive workshop series to: (1) help students develop and maintain a growth mindset with respect to learning; (2) teach students how to learn; (3) provide learning strategies and techniques students can begin to apply while in law school to help bridge the gap between law school and bar exam preparation; (4) teach students the time management skills essential for bar passage including organization, prioritization, goal setting, planning and stress management; and (5) teach students the strategies for writing high scoring essays on the bar exam. At the conclusion of the workshop series, it is our expectation that students will appreciate the value of active and independent learning, and understand that bar passage is the result of intelligence (the ability to acquire and apply knowledge) plus “effort”.

This course is specifically designed to help students improve their essay writing skills while building the confidence needed to perform well on the essay portion of the bar exam. This course will equip students with the skills needed to outline and write clear, concise essays by teaching them how to (1) identify and articulate legal issues in dispute and (2) apply applicable facts to legally relevant rules of law and rule explanations to reach logical conclusions. Students enrolled in this course will participate in a two-hour writing workshop, write and receive constructive and personalized feedback on two essays, and attend two private tutoring sessions to help them improve their analytical and writing skills. Two weeks before the bar exam, students will meet every weekday morning to write "timed" essays to help them prepare mentally and physically for the essay portion of the bar exam. One week before the bar exam, students will participate in a simulated Florida or Uniform exam.
