A Positive Experience

GUEST BLOG by Lauren Rose, 3L at University of Detroit Mercy

It is truly amazing how much information law school teaches students in such a short period of time. In just three years, students learn the law of torts, contracts, property, criminal, and much more. In such a short period of time, students spend hours upon hours of studying to memorize the elements of different laws and the applicable defenses. In the blink of an eye, students learn how to apply the law to real-life scenarios.

I am in a class that assists students with bar preparation.

This class essentially provides a review of all major subjects that are tested on the bar exam. Over the course of the semester, I have come to realize that we, meaning law students, have learned so much information in such a short amount of time. For example, we went over a contracts problem today and reviewed all of the potential issues that can arise with a contract. I have not dealt much with contracts since 1L year, so this review was very eye-opening.

Considering that this was just a two-hour class, I have a feeling that my bar prep studies through Barbri will be incredibly informative and possibly a little overwhelming. I know that there will be a review of an enormous amount of information in just three short months, but I am eager to begin studying and reviewing. Bar preparation, though daunting, will be a positive reminder of all of the things that I have learned in such a short period of time,
