State Distinctions

Postby bissey » Mon Jul 22, 2013 1:38 am

Which state has the most and which has the fewest distinctions from the majority/MBE rules?

Random question that I'm wasting time on rather than studying for the bar. Maybe we can figure it out with anecdotal evidence.

I'll go first.

Torts: 21 pages in Kaplan book; not too bad, but some things greatly vary
Contracts: 5 pages in Kaplan book; few distinction
Property: 11 pages in Kaplan book; not bad
Crim Law: 19 pages in Kaplan book; worst offender, many details
Crim Pro: 5 pages in Kaplan book; few distinction
Evidence: adopted FRE; very few distinctions

Overall: doable

Who cares? You'll get 8/10 points instead of full credit for applying the wrong law on an essay question. If you are having so much trouble as to need points on the writing portion you are focusing on the wrong things.
