GA July 2017 BAR EXAM TAKERS

Postby letsdothis123 » Tue May 02, 2017 3:53 pm

Hello all,

I was just wondering if anyone taking the GA bar knows what essay topics are being predicted?

Checking in too. Not using a bar-prep program - does anyone have a recommendation for state-law materials?

Finally got my C&F certification at least. So I guess I really have to take this thing.

What made you decide to go rogue?

A combination of saving money and not having the time to sit through Barbri lectures again (graduated in 15 and am barred elsewhere).

For the benefit of any GA lurkers, I ended up buying a couple state-law books on Amazon from Celebration Bar Prep. Will let y'all know my thoughts.

We must've been in the same C&F batch. Got mine too - now we get the privilege of shelling out another $600ish for the bar and a laptop fee. Ugh.

It looks like Commercial Paper and Secured Transactions haven't been tested on the essays in like 10 years. So probably not those, right?

Where are you seeing that? I just scanned last Feb's essays and I didn't see either. Looks like Torts, Evidence, Civ Pro, and Wills.

I mean, don't take my word as Gospel. I just skimmed the Feb 2016 essays but I didn't see any Secured Transactions.

CP was part of a Contracts question on Feb. 2015. That's the only time it's been tested in ages. ST hasn't been tested since 2010. But if you are worried, check out Tanicius' guides (stickied). The Secured one in particular is very helpful.

I'm starting to think about the July 2018 GA Bar. Is there a reason I shouldn't use Themis over Barbri for the GA exam? (Cost isn't a factor.)
