Performance Test: BAR/BRI instructors will lecture on the performance test section of the bar exam with particular emphasis on California’s performance test. The lecture will discuss the components of the performance test, the different types and strategies for answering each. BAR/BRI will distribute a practice performance test to each student for students to take on their own time. BAR/BRI will provide written feedback on all performance tests turned in for grading.
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.
