Early Bar Prep Essay Writing Sessions
March 9, 23, and 30
Tuesdays, 12pm-1pm

Across three sessions, participants will learn how to write an effective bar essay and will practice the skill each week. UBE topical essays are 30 minutes each. In each session, you will be given the law you need to answer the question. We will focus on having a plan and a general template to revert to when writing these time pressured essays. Start practicing this skill NOW and leave more time for substantive learning and memorization in bar prep. You will receive feedback each week on your practice essay.
