For both repeat and first-time candidates, the writing methodologies for both the essay and performance exam have proved to be highly effective over the past 38 years – and especially given the need to write under strict time conditions.

More precisely, there are six analysis systems perfected for both sections of the exam that will cause the candidate to use the typical 40 minutes of actual “writing time” more artfully in adapting to the need for speed given the relative importance of major versus minor issues. Embodying the general principle of IRAC, each of the six analysis systems comprise specific formulas that will cause you to use the facts and legal principles in an ultra-efficient manner.

Learning and reinforcing through repetition your use of the systems will change your relationship with both the essay and performance exam in making them ultra-manageable given the limited time for analysis that each of these sections require. If you have found yourself running out of time in writing essays and performance exams, the combination of using the six methodologies may just be the perfect antidote.

And, the equally time-proven Issue-Clustering Systems developed for each of the 14 bar subjects will cause you to upgrade your ability in the typical first 20 minutes of each essay to maximize your issue-recognition skill.
