Applied Legal Reasoning

Course Number: 
LAW.889
Credits: 
2

This class is the bridge between the three-year law school curriculum and the two months of bar review following graduation. The course teaches much of the law tested on the bar exam, yet focuses primarily on thinking skills and test-taking strategies. Extensive coverage is given to the most difficult part of the bar exam: the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), the 200-question multiple-choice test that is part of the bar exam of every state except Louisiana. The course also covers essay writing techniques. The fall course (1.5 credits) will cover Torts, Evidence, Criminal Law, and Criminal Procedure. The spring course (1.5 credits) will cover Contracts, Property, and Constitutional Law. The fall course is not a formal prerequisite for the spring course, but is highly recommended.
