Episode 58 Show Notes:

One of the most common questions we receive from bar exam students with 40 days until the exam is how to remember the law. If you don't memorize the rules, what should you be doing? In today's Episode, Jackson addresses that question and shows you how to learn rather than memorize over the next 40 days. This information can radically change the way you study for your bar exam!
