It's that time: bar exam time! Any of you taking the bar exam this week (the last week of July) probably shouldn't be reading this, but just in case you are, I'll offer some last-minute tips for the bar exam itself — tips on deportment and taking the exam, not on how many partners can twist the meaning of ''proximate cause'' into something Cardozo wouldn't have recognized in a billion years.
Some Last-Minute Bar Exam Tips

Success Stories

LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
