Bar Mnemonics Thread

Postby Kage3212 » Thu Jun 18, 2015 2:20 am

Figured this might be a good place to pull together a bunch of Mnemonic devices as we continue our studying.

Is it fair game to to post mnemonics received from respective bar prep companies on these forums/generally? Not sure about that aspect, but if so I think this could be a valuable thread. Anyone with insight please provide and we can get this started.

Also, I've been using this anagram solver to form words / phrases out of a bunch of random letters.

This sounds interesting.

Why anagram though? Mnemonic creators seem more useful? EDIT: I guess it ends up being the same thing as a mnemonic creator if they're just random letters and such.

disappointed this didn't take off.
I think it needs more rigor.
perhaps we should make google docs for each MBE subject with the official ncbe outlines as a shell that can be filled in?

FRE 403- Relavant evidence will be excluded if its probative value is substantially outweighed by the danger of it being:
Prejudicial
Confusing
Misleading
Delaying/Wasting time
Needlessly cumulative

Please Call Me Doctor Now

Your douchiness will substantially outweigh all other qualities if you ask people to call you a Dr. when you graduate with a J.D.

For you 30 Rock fans...

Test for Establishment Clause violations (Lemon Test)

Liz Lemon thinks Devon Banks (Will Arnett) is an APE

1. It must have as its primary effect neither the Advancement nor inhibition of religion.
2. The statute must have a secular Purpose.
3. It must not foster excessive government Entanglement with religion.


...Kind of a stretch.
