This actually will be a very short post because… I didn’t study very much for the MPT. I didn’t practice MPT questions. I read over BarBri’s MPT Workbook, and that’s about it. I had taken as many written paper classes as I could in law school, and also had a lot of practice writing memos and motions, so I figured I’d be ok.
However, it can’t hurt to read over a couple of recently released MPTs and look at the scoresheets to see what they’re looking for in each MPT. I plan to do that for the next bar exam.
I also found this great MPT link before the July 2007 bar, and it’s worth reading: How to Format Legal Memos on the MPT
Readers, please feel free to post your MPT advice in the comments. I could use some advice myself!
