This non-credit program consists of four FREE workshops on select Saturdays from 1:00-5:00 p.m. at the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace & Justice.
Students who attend all four sessions and submit both the practice essay and performance test to BAR/BRI for grading can enroll in their summer course at a discount.
March 28, 2009 – Substantive Review (description below)
April 4, 2009 – Focused Essay Writing
April 18, 2009 – Multi-State Bar Exam Techniques
April 25, 2009 – Performance Test
Substantive Review: BAR/BRI will introduce students to the structure of the California bar examination, including the logistics and coverage of the bar examination and techniques to assist in planning for the effort necessary to study for the bar examination. BAR/BRI instructors will also provide approximately two hours of substantive review in one heavily-tested bar subject. In preparation for Workshop Two, BAR/BRI will give students a series of fact patterns to review over the week and teach them strategies for studying and memorizing the black letter law.
This introductory course is not a substitute for the regular summer bar review course but is intended to give you a head start on your bar preparation.
