bar exam question

Postby Anonymous User » Mon Dec 26, 2011 6:46 pm

1) Will my V50 cover bar fees? Will they cover bar-prep fees? ~4K
2) Random question: if you had to take either (business associations) or (estates and trusts) for the Cal bar exam in law school, which one would you rather take?

(1) Wtf do you think someone's going to say to this? Ask your firm. No one can answer this for you.
(2) Both.

Worst/Stupidest post ever.

1. Ask your firm. Some firms do nothing. Some offer advances (meaning you get smaller paychecks until you've paid back the advance). Some firms pay Barbri directly. Some give you a stipend, which can vary widely.

2. Neither. Take Barbri. Learn what the bar tests, not what your prof cares about.

I agree with youngfogey, except on the barbri point. I think business associations (assuming it's the "corporations" course your school offers) is a course every law student should take, simply because it provides substantial value outside of merely ensuring a high score on the bar.

Aside from that, your business associations course won't help too much with the bar anyways. A typical corporations course covers Delaware law and precedent, whereas the bar will cover the law of the state you're taking the exam for.
