Study for the bar exam in a student-oriented program. Professor Joerg Knipprath will be teaching a class limited to around 40 full-time students in this course of study designed to maximize success on the bar exam. NOTE: Enrollment for the February bar is limited to around 25 full-time students.
The course will provide a review of substantive law, intensive training in writing and analytical skills for success on the essay and performance test portions of the exam, and several workshops on the Multistate Bar Exam portion of the test. The B.E.S.T. approach uses live lectures on all California bar exam subjects and focuses on the topics actually tested, unlike law school courses where the coverage may be what the professor believes is useful for his or her next article.
The writing portion of the exam counts for 50% of the final score, so the B.E.S.T. position is that extensive training through actually writing and analyzing bar exam questions, personal feedback from the instructor, small group workshops, and individual meetings are more productive than excessive lectures on arcane points of hornbook law.
Law school may have taught you to "think like a lawyer." Now learn the skills that law school did not provide but that are critical to passing the bar.
