E&E's for bar prep?

Postby BCLS » Wed Mar 06, 2013 11:09 am

Hi guys,

Question-- there are a ton of courses I haven't taken in law school (bankruptcy, commercial paper, agency, secured,, Commercial Paper, Conflict of corporations, equity, federal jurisdiction, partnerships, suretyship, trusts, wills) that will be on the bar exam I will be taking this summer. I was wondering if I should purchase the E&E's for these courses and read up before I begin my prep. Any advice? Do a lot of people have to learn this many topics?

No, no, no.

Chose a test prep company and study what they tell you. The law you need to learn is the law as your state's bar examiners see it. Not as a horn book teaches.

Am I at a huge disadvantage since I didn't take these courses?

No. I didn't take anything related to Agency/Partnership/Corporations, Secured Transactions/Sales/Negotiable Instruments, Family Law, Conflicts of Law, or Wills & Trusts in law school. And I passed handily. Yes, subjects I'd taken courses in - like Evidence - were easier to learn, but you don't really need to learn very much of any one subject, and there's enough stuff you have already taken (all the 1L courses) that you'll be fine.

(Although.... how is federal jurisdiction different from civil procedure, and how did you not take it in law school?? And is conflict of corporations really a bar topic or do you mean conflict of laws?)
