1L Questions

Law school is all about thinking like a lawyer. Knowing the law is the first step. Demonstrating its application on law exams is the second step. Law exams test both.

Your professors do not want to see bare statements of the law when they evaluate your legal proficiency on law exams. Your professors want you to see your ability to cite the law and, most importantly, apply the law to the exam facts within the exam time constraints.

Also, organization is critical to your success. Thus, you may know the law and may be able to recite it well, but if you do not organize your thoughts and demonstrate how the rules apply to the facts on your law exams, you will not score well.

An outline is a short summary of the law in a particular subject, comprised of the subject rules with corresponding case citations. A subject outline is your tool for condensing and organizing your subject rules and synthesizing your class notes, case briefs, and reading assignments into one coherent document for quick reference.

Commercial outlines are typically written by law professors, who synthesize and organize the rules for you. Some students create their own outlines. The most efficient approach in your first year is to purchase a commercial outline and integrate your own notes into it.

Fleming's has excellent, condensed substantive law outlines in all bar exam related subjects. Each Fleming's substantive law outline can be purchased individually or with a corresponding CD substantive law lecture that includes instruction on exam techniques and strategies.

Supplements are study guides that help you learn and understand the legal concepts in a particular subject. Supplements can be hornbooks, outlines, flow charts, flashcards, CDs, exam books, or any other resource that fills in your learning process. Supplements vary from one provider to the next. You should choose supplements that cater to your individual learning style.

Fleming's provides multiple supplements, including essay and multiple choice MBE exam books, Exam Solution® substantive law audio CDs with corresponding outlines, and many more products and reviews that you need to succeed in law school and on the bar exam.

The Baby Bar is a nickname for the First-Year Law Students Examination (FYLSE). The exam is administered in one day and includes both essay and multiple choice testing.

The subjects covered on the Baby Bar Exam are Contracts, Criminal Law, and Torts. For more information on the Baby Bar Exam, visit the State Bar web site at www.calbar.org

Fleming's offers a four-day Baby Bar Review, which is available, both live and for home study.

A legal exam writing course teaches you the fundamental skills you must demonstrate in order to pass your exams. 

Legal writing is a skill that is learned and presented in a format commonly referred to as IRAC. Legal writing is different from any other writing because it is more than just reciting rules. It requires you to identify the issues raised by the facts in a hypothetical, cite the relevant rules, and then demonstrate your understanding of the law by explaining its application to the specific facts in an organized manner so that you can come to a conclusion for each issue based on your reasoning of the law to the facts. This presentation must be demonstrated under timed conditions.

Most law school exams are in essay and multiple choice format. A legal writing course teaches you the exam methods and strategies for both testing formats, which you are not typically taught in class.

Since your entire grade in law school is determined by your ability to apply the law you have learned to hypothetical facts in a law school exam, you must study with exam writing in mind. Fleming's Legal Exam Writing Workshop teaches you the skills you need to succeed on law exams.

Yes. Briefing is an essential skill that all law students and lawyers must possess. Practically everything you do when you become a lawyer must be supported with legal authority, so the importance of briefing must not be disrespected. You must develop this skill in law school. 

In your first year, write out your case briefs. To properly brief, use the briefing structure commonly referred to as IRAC. Make sure to identify the issue raised in the case, the rule of law the court applied, the reasoning the court employed to decide the issue based on the legally significant case facts as applied to the rule, and the holding of the court based on that reasoning. Remember, the more you practice, the better you become.

Briefing cases can also be seen as a mechanism to practice for your law exams. Every case is based on a set of facts. The facts that generate a controversy create issues for the court to resolve. The cases contain the rules the court applied in that situation. The case reasoning demonstrates how the court reasoned the case facts to the relevant rule and came to its decision. Law exams are designed to test the same skills you learn from briefing cases. 

2L Questions

To be admitted to practice law in CA, you must pass The Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE), in addition to the general bar exam. 

The MPRE is a sixty-question, two-hour multiple choice exam that measures your knowledge and understanding of the rules of professional conduct related to lawyers and judges. 

You may take the MPRE anytime after completing your first year of law school and after registering with the Committee of Bar Examiners. 

For more information on the MPRE, please visit the State Bar web site at www.calbar.org.  

Prior to admission to the CA State Bar, you must complete a moral character application. The application requires you to show that you presently possess the "good moral character" necessary for admission to practice law in CA.

You should submit your moral character application during your second or third year of law school. Application processing may take up to one year.

For more information on the moral character application process, please visit the State Bar web site at www.calbar.org.  

In addition to your required courses, you can choose which second year elective courses to take. Certainly, you want to choose courses in which you have an interest. However, you should make an effort to select bar exam course subjects because these are what you will be tested on when you take the bar exam.

If you do not take all bar exam related subjects during law school, you will have to learn this material during bar exam review preparation. Students who do not take bar related subjects during law school are often overwhelmed by the amount of material they have to learn just before taking the bar exam, which makes bar preparation more difficult. By choosing bar-tested subjects as your course electives, you will learning what you need to pass the bar and you will be starting your bar preparation early. 

You are best served by taking all bar exam subjects while you are in law school. Remember, bar review should be just that – a review of material you have already learned in law school. 

You improve your grades by improving your legal exam test proficiency. That is what “thinking like a lawyer” means.

Knowing the law and applying the law are two different skills. Often, law students devote themselves to memorizing the substantive law rules, and they can easily recite them when questioned. However, they still perform poorly on law exams because they have not also developed the essential analysis and application skills they must demonstrate on their law school exams. Taking a legal exam writing course will help fix this specific problem, along with taking practice exams on a consistent basis under timed conditions.

A legal exam writing course is designed to teach you how to effectively analyze facts in a law exam and apply the law you have spent so much effort learning to those facts. Mastering analytical skills always results in higher exam grades.

It's never too late to change your law school academic story and feel more confident going into your law exams. If you want to improve your grades during your second year, practice essay and MBE exam test questions before taking your law school exams. In this way, you wll learn how to apply the law instead of just memorizing it.

Yes. Briefing is an essential skill that all law students and lawyers must possess. Practically everything you do when you become a lawyer must be supported with legal authority, so the importance of briefing must not be disrespected. You must develop this skill in law school. There is no need to write out your brief. Simply do a book-brief. The more you practice, the better you become.

Briefing cases can also be seen as a mechanism to practice for your law exams. Every case is based on a set of facts. The facts that generate a controversy create issues for the court to resolve. The cases contain the rules the court applied in that situation. The case reasoning demonstrates how the court reasoned the case facts to the relevant rule and came to its decision. Law exams are designed to test the same skills you learn from briefing cases. 

Yes, the sooner you begin, the better. Fifteen subjects are tested on the CA Bar Exam. You are responsible to know the law thoroughly in every subject, whether you learned it in class or not. In addition, you must hone in your exam skills for three testing formats - the MBE, the essays, and the performance. Thus, the bar exam is not a test you should cram to take. 

Those who plan bar exam study into their schedule while still in their third year of law school generally suffer less stress and panic when their bar review begins, because they have already reviewed the material. When bar review begins, those who have prepared in advance only have to refine their legal knowledge and exam skills, as opposed to those who wait until six weeks before the bar exam and then try to relearn the law that they have not even looked at for several years. Further, this approach leaves little time to practice the exam skills all bar candidates need to succeed.

Always remember that you are preparing to be a lawyer. Good lawyers are self-starters. You should always think about taking the bar exam when selecting your elective courses in your third year. It is best to select elective courses that are also tested on the bar exam. In this way, you will be studying for the bar exam at the same time you are studying for you class exams.

Go to the CA State Bar web site (www.calbar.org) where you will find all of the information you need to apply to take the bar exam. Be sure you look for the submission deadline and begin filling out the application form as soon as possible once you receive it. This process alone can take hours as you have to provide information about your work history, your academic history, and even your moral character history.

Also, educate yourself as to what you can bring into the exam forum and what you cannot. Choose an exam testing location that is most convenient for you. Visit the location before the date of your exam. You want to know the best route to take on the dates of the exam, where to park if you are driving, and what facilities are in close proximity should you need hotel and restaurant accommodations. Advance planning is always a vital ingredient for success.

Yes. The bar exam is not a law school exam. The bar exam is a test of strategy. You need to learn the necessary bar exam methods and strategies to succeed, something that you rarely learn in law school. 

You can learn the law from many different sources, but bar review consolidates the law you need to know and presents it with test-taking in mind. Bar review also provides active learning mechanisms that you do not typically get in law school.

Bar reviews teach you the law and, as important, how to use it on all bar exam testing formats. Bar reviews also provide feedback for the exams you submit for grading, which you rarely receive in law school.

Bar Preparation Questions

The bar exam is not a law school exam. The bar exam is a test of strategy. You need to learn the crucial methods and strategies to succeed on bar exams, skills that are not generally taught in law school.

Further, many students do not take all bar exam subjects in law school or when they do, their professors do not always cover all the law tested on the bar exam. Law school professors frequently pick and choose the topics they want to teach in their particular classes, leaving out much of the substantive law that appears on bar exams. You need a bar review to fill in any gaps in your substantive law knowledge.

You can learn the law from many different sources, but a bar review consolidates the law you need to know and presents it with test-taking in mind. A bar review also provides active learning mechanisms that you do not typically get in law school.

Bar reviews teach you the law and, as important, how to use it on all bar exam testing formats. Bar reviews also provide feedback for the exams you submit for grading, something you rarely receive in law school. Bar reviews show you what the Bar Examiners are looking for in issue spotting, rule statements, analysis application, organization, writing style, and the methods and strategies you need to succeed on the bar exam.

Fleming's bar reviews combine substantive law lectures with exam preparation for all three exam formats tested on the bar exam. Fleming's provides you with all you need to succeed.

Fleming's is not a one-size-fits-all bar review provider. Fleming's offers six different bar reviews from which to choose, so you can enroll in the one that best suits your study schedule, your learning style, and your learning needs. 

In all Fleming's bar reviews, you can interact with the instructors, ask questions in and out of class, and actively participate in the learning process. In all Fleming's bar reviews, you receive oral feedback on audio CD for every exam answer you submit to its attorney readers for grading. Every Monday, Fleming's attorney readers pick up the exams that have been submitted for grading. The readers evaluate the exams and return them for distribution within one week.

Fleming's bar reviews offer smaller classes that are tailored to your individual needs, strengths, and skills. Fleming's staff attorneys are available to you Monday - Friday during office hours to answer any questions you may have.

Fleming's has over thirty-five years of experience in bar review. Fleming's knows what works, which areas of substantive law are tested, and what the bar graders look for in a passing bar exam answer. Fleming's bar review expertise provides you with what you need to succeed.

Please go to our Bar Preparation page for more details on each Fleming's bar review.

Fleming’s offers six different bar reviews. Each is structured a little differently. For example, our Long Term Bar Review is a full-service course that meets primarily on weekends for five months. Saturdays are devoted to substantive law and MBE. Sundays are devoted to exam analysis and application. Two full weekends are devoted to the Performance exam methods and strategies. Long Term can be taken live or on homestudy. 

Our Short Term Bar Review is a full-service course that meets weekends and Monday and Tuesday evenings for six weeks. Saturdays and Monday evenings are devoted to substantive law and MBE. Sundays and Tuesday evenings are devoted to exam analysis and application. Two full weekends are devoted to Performance exam methods and strategies. Short Term can be taken live or on homestudy.

Our Ultimate Bar Tutorial (UBT) is a full service, four-and-a-half month course limited to twenty students. It meets on Saturdays, Sundays, and two-to-three times during weekdays. Private tutorial is included. The UBT can only be taken live in the Fleming's offices. 

Our Premier Tutorial Package Bar Review is a full service course that combines either the Long Term or Short Term Bar Review with twenty-three hours of private tutorial with attorney tutors. Bar candidates choose either the Long Term or Short Term Bar Review and schedule their private tutorial sessions when they want them. 

Our Advanced Analysis™ Bar Review is an online, multimedia presentation, specifically designed for essay skills-building. Each presentation distills a particular bar exam subject into a one-hour video presentation. Each presentation covers exam methods and strategies for each particular subject, using approaches and checklists for issue spotting, organization, and writing. Selected essays with sample answers are included.

Please go to our Bar Review page for more details. 

Yes! Fleming’s offers full service, personalized bar exam reviews. We provide substantive law instruction with corresponding substantive law outlines, MBE instruction with corresponding MBE questions and answers, essay and Performance exam instruction with simulated exams, together with personalized oral feedback on CD for every writing assignment you submit to our attorney readers. We provide everything you need to succeed on the bar exam.

Fleming’s staff of attorneys are available Monday - Friday from 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. to answer any questions you have during the course of its variety of bar reviews.

In addition, Fleming’s provides stress management instruction and includes hypnotherapy class sessions with Ben Moss, a noted hypnotherapist.

Private tutoring is also available for a separate fee, (except for the Ultimate Bar Tutorial and the Premier Tutorial Package bar exam reviews, both in which private tutorial is included.) 

Fleming’s keeps you motivated, provides you with a manageable study schedule, and guides you through the bar exam study process.

Yes. Fleming’s bar reviews give you all the substantive law you need to pass the bar exam. Not only do our user-friendly substantive law lectures and outlines provide you with the law tested on the bar exam, Fleming’s materials also include approaches, checklists, and strategies for each section tested so that you not only learn the law – you learn how to apply the law to actual bar exam questions. 

Yes. Essay, MBE, and Performance testing is regularly scheduled and conducted under simulated bar exam conditions in each of Fleming's bar reviews. As an example, in Fleming’s Long Term Bar Review, in addition to the exams covered during class instruction, you are assigned forty-eight essay exams and nine Performance exams to write and submit for an oral, audio CD critique and grading. In Fleming’s Short Term Bar Review, in addition to the exams covered during class instruction, you are assigned thirty-five essay exams and four Performance exams to write and submit for an oral, audio critique and grading.

Once you complete the assigned exams in the Fleming's course you are taking, you may submit an unlimited number of other essay and Performance answers for additional feedback. All assigned exams submitted to the Fleming’s attorney readers are graded according to CA Bar Exam standards. 

Students who attend the Fleming's live bar review courses write and submit their exam answers in class on the day the exams are assigned and written. Those taking the course online submit their exam answers to the Fleming's offices via e-mail, U.S mail, or fax after writing them at their own study location. 

Yes. Our Fleming’s attorney readers critique every written exam answer that you submit during bar review, using an oral, audio CD medium to personalize the feedback. The readers go through each page of the sumbitted exam answer, telling you what is correct and why, what is incorrect and why, and how to correct all identified problems in the writing sample. 

Fleming’s attorney readers pick up your submitted exams every Monday. Our readers critique and grade those exams and return them to you within one week. 

You should sign up as soon as possible for bar review. When you put a deposit down toward any Fleming's bar review, we freeze the registration price and we provide you with selected bar review materials that you can use for your law school classes and for early review of the classes you have already taken. 

Further, many bar candidates start bar review during their last semester or even earlier, because starting early prepares you early, giving you time to really learn the substantive law and exam methods and strategies in a non-stressful way. You avoid madly cramming at the last minute. Early bar review preparation allows you to be more prepared, more ready, and more at ease when your bar exam comes around.

Yes. Lack of success on the bar exam can result for many reasons. It is nearly impossible to self-diagnose. Some bar candidates are weak in the law and need additional substantive law instruction, some need to improve their issue spotting and writing skills, and some suffer from test panic.

Fleming's is a specialist in diagnosing what prevented a bar candidate from passing the bar exam and providing the bar review resources needed to improve the area of weakness.
