Florida Bar Essay Predictions February 2018
Will the February 2018 Florida Bar Exam return us to normalcy? This blog post will give you my Florida Bar Essay Predictions for the February 2018 Exam. Remember the good old days, when mainstream doctrinal subjects pervaded the Florida Bar Exam? You remember studying for a majority of your FL Bar essay prep the contracts essays, property essays, torts essays, etc.? And then what happened? The Bar examiners threw you a curve ball by testing two standalone topics that had rarely been essay topics before. The July 2017 Florida Bar Exam tested juvenile dependency/adoption, Florida Con law, and everyone’s all-time favorite, UCC Articles 3 and 9 together forever. Talk about a curve-buster!
Often, the Florida Bar Exam includes essay topics that are new or are under development as I call it. This means that you can no longer rely on traditions, patterns, or predictions. Do not rely on your laurels from law school classes. The essays are a lot like the MBE questions. You can study the old questions all day long, but there is no guarantee they will prepare you for questions you have never seen before and may never have studied the information needed to properly answer them.
With all of that being written, it is time to unveil my Florida Bar Essay Predictions for February 2018. If the Florida Bar essays were based on contracts, family law, and con law, it is likely the February 2018 Bar Exam will cover criminal law and criminal procedure, property, and torts. Hey wait a minute, am I just speculating by providing you with mere conjecture? My speculation cannot possibly be less accurate than your commercial Bar prep classes, can it?
In all seriousness, the February 2018 Florida Bar essays will likely cover topics not tested last July. Although nobody can predict the results this early, it would be difficult to imagine there being two full essays concerning topics rarely tested. Instead, it is more probably, no promises Ks lovers, that the February 2018 Florida Bar Essays will delve deeper into traditional topics (although criminal law is rather new to the FL Bar) to test your knowledge of burgeoning subjects. Do not neglect broadening your knowledge of the primary topics most frequently tested.
Ultimately, my Florida Bar Essay Predictions for the February 2018 Florida Bar Exam are not ironclad, they are merely predictions based on intuition and experience. Worry not my pupils, I shall do my level best to prepare you for as many contingencies as possible. A broad-spectrum approach is our approach.
