SKILLMAN LAWYER’S QUOTE
“Dear Prof. Skillman, I wanted to thank you again for the workshop you gave at New York Law School. Just as a heads up, I thought I did terribly on my contracts exam, but I was misinformed. I actually got the highest score in my class! … I am so proud of myself, and I have you to thank!”
New York Law School
On November 22, 2013, Professor Skillman met with students in The Advanced Exam Writing Course™ for the last class of the semester. A combination of law students and bar candidates attended the class. The bar candidates were preparing for the February 2014 bar examination and were invited to ensure their success.
During the first part of the class, Professor Skillman lays out her theories for writing excellent essays by going over The Exam Templates™. As she explained, there is a template for writing. In fact, writing excellent exams is quite straightforward once one understands the strategies for success.
After going over The Exam Templates™ that Professor Skillman developed, the students’ exams in the Class Packet were critiqued line-by-line. Exams were submitted by both law students and bar candidates.
Before listening to the audio of the class, download the Class Packet.
After listening to the audio of the class, be sure to download and read the written critiques of the students’ papers. All papers were critiqued line-by-line in writing and returned to the students via email and ordinary mail.
Listening to this class will be very helpful if you have unanswered questions about how to excel at writing essays. Further, even if you have been successful in law school, the class is illuminating because it lays out the standards for writing successfully and teaches you how to judge whether your essays meet the standards.
If you are a law student, we suggest that you sign up for The Basic Exam Course™ for Law Students and The Advanced Exam Writing Course™. If you are a bar candidate, we suggest that you sign up for The Basic Bar Preparation Course™ and The Supplemental Bar Preparation Course™. You will also find listening to the audios of the 2013 Summer Supplemental Bar Preparation Course™ very helpful.
