Exam-Writing Tips from Law Profs

At this point in the semester, outlines, sample exams and study sessions are important, but knowledge will get you only so far.

Two of the best short articles on exam-writing are "Strategies for Taking Law School Exams...So They Don't Take You," by Professor Dionne Koller, who formerly directed the academic support program at the University of Maryland School of Law, and "Tips for Students Taking Law School Exams" by Professor Vikram Amar of the University of California (Hastings), featured in a previous post. Take a look.
