Course Description

This required course will introduce you to the mechanics of the bar exam, the substantive material tested on the bar exam, and teach you important skills in reading, analyzing, and answering bar exam questions. The course uses a learn-by-doing approach. Weekly written homework assignments include multiple choice questions, essay questions, and multi-state performance tests. These will be submitted, graded, and returned online before most class meetings, and will then form the basis for class discussion and review. Students will also be regularly assigned online substantive videos to review and utilize in their homework and classroom discussion. The course will reinforce selected topics within three (3) of MBE subjects, Criminal Law, Constitutional Law, and Civil Procedure. Students will learn how the bar examiners test these topics and will learn how to study and to apply their knowledge to bar exam questions. Students must successfully complete both ALA I and ALA II to graduate.
