Postby butlerraider1 » Thu Nov 17, 2016 6:28 pm

Next semester is my last semester of law school before I graduate and there are still a number of bar courses that I haven't taken. Any suggestions? Due to a required course, and an internship I'm doing in the spring, I have to choose 2 out of these four: Wills and Trusts, Sales, Conflict of Laws, or Family Law.

Wills if your state bar has it.

I'd choose something more fun and/or easier than any of those. Failing that, I'd go with best grade distribution. Failing that, I'd go with best schedule (that's a personal choice. Would you rather have Mondays off or Thursday's off, etc.). Failing that I'd choose what's most interesting to you. Failing that I'd choose whatever would help most on the bar. Failing that I would choose whichever you think might help you in your future career. Failing that I'd flip a few coins.

I took none of these in law school and didn't take evidence or crim pro for that matter. Just study for the bar exam and you'll likely be fine. Do what BigZuck said.
