Each bar round I make predictions for the essays. While I do not have a crystal ball, I have had a pretty good history of making accurate predictions. I have studied the exam for over 25 years and base my predictions on many factors. Mostly my predictions are based upon patterns I have seen for decades. I have studied every bar exam round for the past 35 years.
The California bar examiners repeat the same essay fact patterns over and over. Sometimes topics repeat back to back while other topics go untested for 10 years or more. For example, Criminal Law Murder was last tested on the February 2008 bar exam. It is due. Other topics come up more frequently and are therefore more likely on a give bar round. Still, I always review the past five bar exam rounds and look for what I think is most likely to appear. My predictions have consistently been very accurate. For the past five bar rounds, I have had a 100% accuracy in my predictions.
Here is how it works – each bar round I come up with 7 or 8 essay scenarios (predictions) that I think are most likely to be tested. In addition, I provide selected, past California bar exam essays to reflect each of the areas that I think are most likely to be tested on the next bar round. My students often see essays on the exam that are very similar to the essays I provided in my predictions email.
