Michigan Bar Exam Essay Strategies (3212)

This pilot course provides third year law students with a "head start" in preparing for the essay portion of the Michigan bar examination, but is not a substitute for more comprehensive commercial bar review courses. It includes instruction on essay writing strategies and skills. Students will study the Michigan essay subjects independently in much the same manner as in the weeks immediately preceding the bar exam. Substantive lectures will be given on selected topics, primarily in the context of analyzing essay questions. Much of the classroom time will be used for essay exercises and exams.

This course is restricted to Seniors. In addition to the prerequisites listed below, it is recommended that seniors have taken Law 2100 Criminal Procedure and Law 2490 Sales. Seniors may audit for no academic credit with permission of the instructor.
