Abstract

Pass the Bar helps motivate and empower students outperform indicators, overcome challenges, and do what it takes to pass the bar exam with a goal-oriented focus on becoming a thriving member of the legal profession. The book provides concrete information so that time studying for the bar exam, that so many people dread, becomes an empowering stage, when approached with the right attitude, and when students are equipped for success, and when they do the necessary work to succeed. The book includes worksheets, questionnaires, goal setting sessions, and other tools to help bar exam applicants stay organized and focused, as well as advice drawn from decades of teaching students in law schools and bar review. The book includes sections and study schedules particularly dedicated to nontraditional students and working students. The book is also a helpful resource for families and support networks of bar takers, especially those who are first generation law students.

Passing the bar exam is not just about passing a test: it is changing a law student's identity, moving from student to professional, and getting ready to assume the role as an ethical leader in a complex legal world. This book prepares students who are thinking about law school, in law school, and who have graduated from law school to prepare effectively to study for and pass the bar exam and to develop their professional identities in the process.

Keywords: bar, bar exam, bar, law students, professionalism, professional identity, nontraditional law students, motivation, positive thinking, time management, bar preparation
