Episode 75 Show Notes:

The relationship between law schools and bar prep has always been muddy at best. In today's Episode, Jackson looks at how law schools are managing their bar prep courses - often to the detriment of their students. 

In this Episode, we examine 4 current trends:

  • Increasing pressure from the ABA for Law School Transparency in reporting bar pass rate statistics
  • Current financial difficulties in the law school sector
  • The emergence of law school bar prep classes as part of the required curriculum
  • The links between employment statistics and commercial bar prep company relationships to law schools

The net result, Jackson concludes, is a system unfairly weighted against the law student and requiring an effective double payment for an inferior level of bar preparation.

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!
