… for bar readiness, I suggest you do the shortest one I’ve described to you in recent emails: the new Kaplan self-assessment/diagnostic tool. Other than that, if you are able to take at least part of this week off for some rest and relaxation, I hope you will!
Look in your Emory inbox for an email with the subject line “Welcome to Kaptest.com!”; if you don’t see it, please check your spam folder. The diagnostic is open for a total of two weeks, which started on May 7 for May 2021 graduates (see earlier emails) if you graduated this month. For rising 2Ls and continuing LLM students, access to the diagnostic opened today and is open through May 31. It will take a total of three hours, but you can use the pause feature to break it into shorter chunks. All Emory Law students who complete the diagnostic within those time frames will be entered into a drawing for prizes from the Office of Academic Engagement & Student Success!
Prizes include sets of Critical Pass MBE flashcards, copies of “Pass The Bar!” by Riebe and Schwartz, and Starbucks gift cards. The biggest prize, however, is the ability to improve your own chances of passing the bar exam on your first try by using this and all other self-assessment and improvement resources available to you.
Remember that all graduating JD and LLM students also now have access to the full suite of review materials and diagnostic tests from the National Conference of Bar Examiners; see prior communications for specifics on logging in.
You still have access this summer, using your Emory email address, to the West Academic Assessment review materials that cover bar-tested subjects. Instructions for using those are on Canvas, on The Fourth Floor page.
Congratulations on making it to the end of this semester and this challenging academic year!
