Bar Exam Boot Camp

This program is funded by the Hausman Fund. It provides participants with instruction on how to improve performance on writing bar exam essay answers and monitors their performance on weekly essay and multiple choice practice questions. In the month prior to the 2 months of bar study, participants are required to turn in answers to 150 multiple choice questions. They receive the answers and explanations for each question. During the two months of bar study, participants answer at least 2 bar exam essays and a minimum of 20 multiple choice questions under test conditions on the program dates. Answers and explanations for each essay and multiple-choice question are provided on an individual basis. Written feedback is provided each week on 1 essay exam. Participants also learn how to track their performance on practice essay exams and multiple choice exams. Tracking sheets must be turned in on a weekly basis. Advice for improvement is provided based on assessment of the individual’s performance shown on the tracking sheets. Students must also complete 1 MPT each week and participate in 1 MiniBar. Additional program requirements and rewards are determined for each bar exam study period. In the past, participants who fulfill all requirements and pass the bar exam each receive $1,500.00 from the Hausman Fund.
