I whole-heartedly agree with the practice exam part. That's a tough one for students because usually students want to wait until their outline (or whatever) is perfect before attempting a practice exam. Truth be told, practice exams can really help you hone in what to focus on when preparing an outline.

I started this blog with 1Ls in mind because most 1Ls don't have access to very much useful guidance. However, this blog is NOT exclusively for 1Ls. 2Ls, 3Ls, and even practicing attorneys should find these entries helpful. Often, people will tell you "what" you need to do or include, but you'll be left hanging as to "how" to accomplish that. So, essentially, I try to focus on the latter.
