Good Luck on the February 2014 Bar Exam

Goodwin and Scieszka would like to take the time to wish good luck to everyone taking the February bar examination. It’s a right of passage into the profession and an opportunity to show the graders that you’re competent to practice law in the beautiful state of Michigan.

We did it, and you can too.

You’re embarking on the beginning of your legal career.

The bar exam is no easy task, and Michigan’s heavier weighted essay portion has weeded out many applicants. Stay organized, be concise, and be most of all be confident. You’ve worked too hard to panic and throw in the towel now.

For those taking the exam, you already know this, but for those who don’t know what it takes to practice law in the state of Michigan (from the Michigan State Bar’s website):

The first day of the examination consists of 15 essay questions. Both the morning and afternoon sessions will last three hours.

The second day of the examination is the Multistate Bar Examination consisting of 200 multiple choice questions prepared by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. Both the morning and afternoon sessions will last three hours. 

Once again, good luck. We’ve been there. For many of you this is going to be the last standardized test of your life. Stay focused, eat well and be confident in your studies. You’re always going to feel that you just don’t know enough, but that’s normal. There’s too much material to know it all.
