MPT Strategy

Postby LionelHutzJD » Sun Jul 24, 2016 11:43 am

Is it generally assumed that we should go directly to the library after the task memo? Do most of you find this the best way to go? Anyone do the file first?

I do file first. At least with the Barbri MPTs, the important facts are usually very apparent to me without even needing to read the law first. So I underline those and then when I'm reading the cases in the library, i'm already comparing/distinguishing as I read along

This is what I've been doing. But I see that Barbri recommends doing the library first, which I guess makes sense, but idk if I should switch it up this late in the game.

Do what makes sense for you. I read the task memo first, then library, then file. That way I have the overarching task, then I can get the elements I need to analyze, and then finally the facts to fit them. It makes more sense to me to read the facts with knowledge of how they affect the answer.

Kaplan recommends doing the file first then library.
