Black Law Students / PMBR goes full while BarBri feels the heat...
« on: August 11, 2008, 05:01:45 PM »

NEW YORK, NY (August 5, 2008) – Kaplan, the global educational services provider, has extended its bar review offerings to include full-service preparation programs for students preparing for the state bar exams in New York, New Jersey and Florida....

“Our extension into full-service bar review was a natural progression, given Kaplan’s 70-year history of preparing students for standardized exams and PMBR’s 30 years of experience in multistate bar review,” said John Polstein, CEO of Kaplan’s test prep division, under which Kaplan PMBR operates.  “We’ve combined unparalleled test prep experience and resources in technology, training, research and service with expertise gained from preparing over half a million attorneys for the bar – plus input from thousands of past, present and future bar takers.  We’re excited to innovate and boost the standard of quality in the full-service bar review market.”

Kaplan PMBR’s comprehensive programs will cover preparation for the MBE plus state-specific portions of the bar exams in New York, New Jersey and Florida.  Unique and industry-pioneering program features include on-demand online course videos which enable students to make up missed lectures at their convenience, personalized study plans that pinpoint students’ specific areas of weakness and provide resources for targeted improvement, unlimited essay grading, an “Ask the Attorney” hotline, an “MBE Qbank” online quiz builder, and a money-back guarantee.

The programs will be available beginning in Florida for the winter 2009 bar exam and in Florida, New York and New Jersey for the summer 2009 bar exam.

Black Law Students / Practicing in NYC…
« on: July 10, 2008, 01:20:13 PM »
Hey people…

I didn’t realize how many members here either practice or attend school in New York.

I need some help…

I already contacted Burning Sands and he has already given me help.  But I also wanted some other views.

I have some general questions and ANY response or comment would be appreciated.

What type of advice would you give someone that graduated from a school outside NY, who wants to practice in New York City?

Besides the New York City Law Department, what other government entity opportunities are available?

Anything else that you think I would find helpful…

Current Law Students / Who should I choose the Easy/Hard Teacher?
« on: July 26, 2007, 07:53:54 PM »
I am about to be 2L at a Florida school.

I am in a dilemma in picking a teacher for my Business Organizations/Entities course (Agency, Partnership, LLC and Corporations).

Its a 4 Credit Hour Class along with Evidence, Pro. Responsibility, Con. Law II and Crim. Law. All together that is 16 credit.

I'm also on the Moot Court Board, I have to sign up for a class along with that and that is 1 credit.

I am COMPETING in the write competition for Law Review and hopefully I make it. But who knows.

I am also clerking during the year. 10 hours a week.

I am also apart of SBA.

So the question is should I take a Professor well in depth of Bus. Org. but her tests are more difficult or should I  take a Professor who is less demanding and I know I can get a BETTER grade in.

I am anxious to see the responses.

For those that have taken a Bar Prep course and passed your Bar, do you think Bar Prep courses are necessary or can you pass the Bar with dilligent studying the same books.

Any response will be appreciated.

Current Law Students / Stop reading your outlines and do QUESTIONS
« on: December 05, 2006, 09:13:34 AM »
I am a 1L, so I may not have that much experience in this thing called law school. But I make this thread, because if a person is on this board it shows that they somewhat care about their legal education.

Memorizing a bunch of rules will not get you far in this process.

Please take the time to do PRACTICE EXAMS and MULTI-CHOICE questions. Drop the outline and challenge yourself!

Good luck to everyone!
