Legal writing programs tend to be bad experiences for students because it is such a huge change from the way you learned to write in high school and college. If you don't get a ton of feedback, or you don't click with your professor, the results can be very bad. Legal writing has a steep learning curve, and I think that even after you graduate, your legal writing continues to improve, as you read stuff filed by other lawyers and have stuff reviewed by (the few) decent partners.

I think if you got an "A" on the brief your second semester, it shows that you finally figured it out, and that is all that the firms will care about. It took me my entire first year of law school to get the format down, but once I got in down, my grades took off in all of my subjects. Too bad it takes a whole year for some of us, and longer for others if you have a lazy or unkind professor.

Yes, I mean the fill-in-the blank workbook as Class notes. You need to outline that and know it cold for essays.

Bar Exam Preparation / If in Georgia for Bar Exam

I offer tutoring for writing for the Bar Exam on state essays and the MPT practice test. I'm located in Atlanta.

I've taken the Bar in Georgia and Colorado.

I took Barbri in Georgia and passed.
I did not take Barbri in Colorado and passed. (I didn't remember anything and I had to take the multistate again!)

For the essay portion of the BAR EXAM, you only need to memorize the class notes from BarBri. That's all I did in Colorado. For the Multistate multiple choice, all you need to study are the BarBri class notes and the Conviser mini-review. For the MPT, you need practice tests to work on.

You definitely can get by with the materials. BUT you HAVE to have the class notes.
