Non-substantive exams

Postby delusional » Sun Jan 20, 2013 3:30 pm

So there's a course that is relevant to my interests, which is not strictly a "law" course, but it's not quite a seminar or workshop either. The course is about transactional law and seems to be basically a series of case studies of major negotiations and transactions, and the students are not only from the law school. But unlike other seminars/workshops I've taken, the grade is based on a final exam.

I anticipate the final not being strictly a law final, rather, more of a case-study-issue-spotter. Any tips out there on taking such an exam? I expect it to be much "softer" in terms of acceptable answers, so how would doing well on such an exam differ from doing well on a classic law school issue spotter? How would it be similar? If I think that I can do relatively well on law-type exams, should I drop this in favor of typical law classes?
