Lectured last week in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Virginia; this week in California. Great students in great locations! A real honor to spend time with such amazing people. It also is something extraordinary to walk into rooms filled with so much nervous energy, to be in the company of hard-working and dedicated law school graduates getting ready for success on the July 2015 Bar Exam.
The best part is watching people’s eyes light up when we practice performance tests and essay questions and they realize that the bar exam is challenging but wholly doable, when they feel empowered to know that they can prevail.
If you are studying for the July Bar Exam, hang in. It’s a long couple of months. Proceed (and do your best) one day at a time. Work hard, but do not judge yourself harshly. It’s all about incremental improvement. For every practice question you complete, just ask yourself how you could have improved.
Soon, very soon, you will learn that you passed the test and you will obtain a license that is truly an opportunity, a privilege, a tool with which you can better the lives of so many.
Keep at this, and stay positive. It is worth all the hard work you are now putting in!
