GA bar exam recent case law

Post by matthew.adkins » Fri Feb 14, 2020 11:49 am

I'm taking the attorney's exam this month and in talking to folks it looks like the bar examiners like to add a question directly on point with recent appellate decisions. For example, one of my colleagues took the exam right after Obergfell (sp?), and she got a gay marriage fam law question. I asked a crim lawyer buddy and he told me to look at the big DUI change, sure enough, that exact issue was on the last exam.

Does anybody have a resource that will point out some recent rulings (last 6 months) that I can look at to get an idea about some things we might be seeing soon? This is generally GA specific.

GA passed a “personhood” bill recently that is being currently challenged in court. Could weave a con law question out of that.

Update: None of the essays were fact patterns drawn from any recent cases I looked at so this was a dead end anyway. ON the bright side the essay topics weren't too bad. We'll see in May.
