Hi there, I'm not going to be studying for the BAR right now but I wish you all the luck in the world. I hope it all goes well for you next year!

Have you gone to the seminar at the end ? How was it? I haven't attended one myself but for only two days it wouldn't hurt to hear what they have to say.

We live in difficult times and not everyone is lucky enough to find a job they would enjoy. Unemployment is high everywhere, not only in the law field.

Current Law Students / Re: QUESTION: How long is the J.D degree good for?

I don't think a law degree expires, you worked hard enough for it, but I suggest you take Haus's advice, don't wait a lifetime to take the bar exam.

Maybe in a situation like yours you could consider other options. Are you 100% sure you want to study law? Choosing a career is not easy but it's something to think long and hard about.

How did the MPRE go ? Is this the first time you're taking it? From what I heard it's not a very difficult test, like the BAR, but it's not a piece of cake either.

It seems like everyone finds this method to be something awful. I find it refreshing, it's a great mind exercise and for a lawyer it's definitely really important. A good lawyer has to think fast and be confident in what he/she says.

Current Law Students / Re: Briefs

I have found great sources of inspiration on that site, I'm so glad someone thought about creating it. Professors may have their reasons if they advice everyone not to use any briefs or outlines but until I know it's a good reason I will continue to read whatever I find useful and take notes for myself.

I'm not familiar with them but if the professors suggest them, they must have a good enough reason. You could try them out and see how it goes.

Studying for the LSAT / Re: In the race for LSAT success...again

I wish you all the luck in the world! I think it's great that you have such ambitions, even if you dropped out. You're not the first one or the last, the good thing is you want to get back on track. I hope you'll manage to do your best.
