This book is dedicated to taking bar exam performance tests (PTs) during law school. PTs are open-book skills tests. Once you learn how to successfully complete a performance test, you can take and pass any PT the bar examiners throw at you. This book walks you through PT strategies, tips, and tools, and then provides 10 practice PTs, debriefings, and sample answers.
Reading Bar Exam MPT Preparation & Experiential Learning For Law Students: Interactive Performance Test Training will help you master the performance test portion of the bar exam during law school. Working through the PT questions and sample answers, you will:
- Give yourself a down payment for success on the bar exam
- Gain critical exposure to practical lawyering skills that will help you transition effectively to law practice
- Find that law school comes alive, especially if you have thus far seen it as “just” reading and briefing cases
- Begin to see yourself not just as a student, but as a practicing attorney
Law students used to postpone even thinking about the bar exam until after graduation. They then did nothing but study for two months. Today’s law students have more pressure, more riding on outcomes, and much more student loan debt than prior generations. To ensure bar exam success, you must start bar prep early—during law school—and master strategies to pass every part of the exam. This book will help you do just that—pass the performance test portion of your bar exam.
In the role-play simulations in this title’s online performance tests, you will “represent” almost a dozen clients in criminal and civil litigation, and in transactional matters. You will practice drafting memos, briefs, discovery plans, affidavits, closing arguments, cross examinations, and more.
Read on, and get ready for success.
