How – and Why – You Need To Self-Grade Bar Exam Essays

We just had a student tell us last week that learning how to self-grade bar exam essays was the best thing she did when she was studying for the bar exam.

Can I use MEE One-Sheets as Substitutes for Outlines?

MEE one-sheetsCan I use MEE One-Sheets as Substitutes for Outlines?

A few Multistate Essay Exam (MEE) one-sheets purchasers have asked us if MEE one-sheets can be used as substitutes for full MEE outlines.
