"Many students wonder how much time is needed to study for the bar exam. In this article, we tell you the total number of hours, as well as the total number of weeks, you should study for the bar exam. We also give you some important things to keep in mind when determining how much time you should spend studying for the bar exam."
What if the Bar Exam were read as a work of jurisprudence? What is its theory of law? How does the Bar Exam compare to works of jurisprudence by H.L.A. Hart, Ronald Dworkin, Karl Llewellyn, and others? This short tongue-in-cheek book review of the Bar Exam seeks to answer these questions. Each year, thousands of lawyers-to-be ponder over it, learning its profound teachings on the meaning of the law. They study it for months, devoting more time to it than practically any other jurisprudential text. It therefore comes as a great surprise that such a widely read and studied work has barely received scholarly attention. It is time to rectify this situation and put the Bar Exam in its place as the great work of jurisprudence that it is.
