NY Bar advice - foreign educated law students without American law degree

Postby nybartony » Sun Nov 05, 2017 2:16 pm

I'll be taking the NY bar in Feb 2018. I am a foreign-educated law student and haven't studied American law before.

I have particular difficulties in studying the MEE. As a non-US law student, I found it more effective to learn the law just by doing past papers instead of revising the condensed outlines. Also revising lecture outlines simply not too helpful...It seems to me that while the UBE tends to recycle certain issues in their exams, new issues not tested before always appear. Also I often can't find the legal principles in my BarMax outlines for quite a lot of issues in the past paper essays.

Anyone has comments as to my approach in revising MEE or how I should tackle a situation of seeing a question that I don't know the law...

I had Barbri MEE book. It has many sets of question, outlined answer, and essay answer. I read questions and answers in every question and understand how to write the answer. I don't know about Barmax. I only had Barmax for mpre.

Once you do decent practice of MBE questions in any bar preparation materials, you probably memorize a lot of rules by practice. I found MEE as the combination of 3+ MBE questions.

Other people may answer better than me.
