Welcome back from Spring Break!
Very soon, most of you will begin preparing for the bar exam. We would like to help ensure you pass the first time.
Beginning tomorrow, March 20, the UC Hastings Orientation to the Bar program -- O! The Bar!! -- will offer four workshops, addressing all of the components of this final test as you enter the profession. The sessions, presented by experts, provide invaluable information and useful tips. You will have an opportunity to practice on actual bar questions and to have your answers reviewed by a professional tutor. There will be an opportunity to discuss strategies with a tutor. More information is available by clicking here.
Our faculty also are offering lectures on select bar subjects. These concise overviews will give people who have not taken the course on the subject the background they need in advance of this summer, and they will be an excellent refresher for those who have taken the course on the subject. Professor Lois Schwartz will cover Con Law II on April 2, 7 pm, in Classroom K; Professor Beth Hillman, Wills and Trusts, April 8, 7 pm, in Classroom K.
I know that even as the economy recovers, the legal marketplace remains challenging. Professors and deans can influence the economy only very modestly, but we can, should, and must help our students -- all of them. Everything we do is directed to improving your school and your educational experience. Please join me at the Student Town Hall, 3:30 pm, March 27, Classroom C, to discuss our progress.
Best wishes to you as we finish our third year together.
Frank H. Wu
Chancellor & Dean
