008 — Reliving Law School Will Help You Pass the Bar Exam

Podcast_cover

In this episode of the Bar Exam Mind podcast, I ask you to relive your first semester of law school.  Seriously, my intentions are good.

If you reflect on your first semester of law school, it will help you understand how to approach the bar exam because the bar exam is, in many ways, law school in a miniature and time-compressed form.

You begin law school confused and overwhelmed, but you eventually learn how to approach your classes, learn the material, and pass the tests.  In fact, for many people, law school becomes boring near the end.

As I discuss in this episode, studying for the bar exam takes you through analogous stages.
