2L: THE SECOND YEAR LAW STUDENT
YOU’VE BEEN PUSHED TO THE LIMIT.
NOW PREPARE TO GO EVEN FURTHER.
At this point of your legal education, it's a good idea to develop a strategy moving forward. In addition to the core 2L courses you'll take, you get to choose your own classes and participate in any number of extra-curricular activities. You want to become as marketable as possible after graduation and just as ready for the upcoming Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE).
IT'S NOT TOO EARLY TO THINK ABOUT THE BAR EXAM.
In fact, your 2L courses can actually help. By selecting ones that cover subjects commonly included on the bar, you'll benefit from the extra preparation, even this far in advance. It's also a good idea to enroll now in the BARBRI bar review course. The most important test of your professional life will be here before you know it. Have the peace of mind you're doing all you can to pass it.
BUILD UP YOUR RESUME WHILE KEEPING UP WITH YOUR STUDIES.
Getting involved in Law Review, Moot Court, legal aid clinic and student government, for example, will add to your list of accomplishments. However, it leaves less time to hit the books. Plus your professors expect you to know what you're doing by now, so the pace in class actually quickens. You'll begin planning for the MPRE and ramp up your search for a summer clerkship. How can you possibly do it all?
