Teaching Materials
No lecture on technique or the substantive law prepares you for writing bar exam essays like reading and critiquing actual scored essays — both the good essays and the bad ones. All of the sample essays in WHAT NOT TO WRITE have been written by bar candidates. Nothing, not even grammar or spelling, has been changed. Through step-by-step instruction, examples, and critiques, WHAT NOT TO WRITE gives you insight into and practice writing consistently strong bar exam answers in the allotted amount of time. Authored by the founder and the vice president of LawTutors, a highly respected bar exam preparation program, WHAT NOT TO WRITE features:
  • Real essay answers to real bar exam questions, including PT questions
  • Step-by-step guidance on how to successfully write the answer to a bar exam essay or PT question
  • Opportunities to practice writing bar exam answers in essay form
  • Exercises in critiquing sample essays — both good and bad ones
  • Self-critiquing exercises
