JD Advising Outline Sample

Outlines are a very important part of bar exam prep.  Your outlines are what you fill out during lecture and what you review and memorize! They are essentially the foundation of your preparation. Therefore, it is critical to have organized, streamlined, outlines that tell you exactly what you need to know — and don’t need to know — when you study for the bar exam. We believe that since our students rely on us to pass the bar exam, it is our job to provide our students with the best possible outlines available. So we have corrected all of the problems we have seen with traditional outlines to make your job — studying for the bar exam — as easy as possible.

Here, we tell you how our outlines differ from others and we provide you with a sample of our outlines.

Which States Will Adopt the Uniform Bar Exam Next?

Which States Will Adopt the Uniform Bar Exam Next?

There is a lot of speculation over which states will adopt the Uniform Bar Exam next. Adopting the Uniform Bar Exam is not done overnight. Often, the state will appoint a task force or committee that will make a recommendation on whether the state should adopt the bar exam after completing a study that generally lasts at least a year. Further, even after that recommendation is made, the state may not adopt the bar exam instantly. Many states wait a year or longer to officially administer the Uniform Bar Exam after deciding to adopt it. This gives students a fair warning that the bar exam will be changing!

Will anyone know if I failed the bar exam? | A state-by-state guide

Will anyone know if I failed the bar exam?

A state-by-state guide

Many students ask us: will anyone know if I failed the bar exam? The bar exam is stressful for a number of reasons but for many test-takers, it’s the public’s ability to access their results that magnifies the pressure surrounding the exam.

Below is a state-by-state guide on how bar examiners release exam results. In it, we answer the question “will anyone know if I failed the bar exam?” Use this guide to determine whether other people can see whether you passed the bar and any other relevant details.

We have found that most of the time the answer is “yes” by omission, whereby the onus is on the reader to determine which name(s) are not included on a published pass list. In other words, a state will post a list of those who passed the bar (but not a list of those who failed). Continue reading Will anyone know if I failed the bar exam? | A state-by-state guide

Sample Bar Exam Study Schedule for February Takers

Sample Bar Exam Study Schedule for February Takers

If you are taking the bar exam in February, you may be looking for a sample bar exam study schedule. We post a sample bar exam study schedule for February takers below. A few things to note about this sample schedule:

  • it starts the first week of December, which is great for those who work full time or who want to get started early
  • it uses Uniform Bar Exam subjects (so please tweak if you are in a non-UBE state)
  • it allows two weeks of a break for the holidays, which you can use to review, to get ahead, or just as a true break!
  • it allows you to complete the subjects in the first week of February, leaving most of February to review!

This schedule is the same schedule that we give to students who opt for a December 1 date in our On Demand Uniform Bar Exam course as well as our live course. We also put our On Demand bar exam course calendar below if it is easier for you to visualize how to approach each subject in a calendar format.
