Open brain, insert black-letter law

With only a few weeks to go of bar review classes, I'm now at the point that I'm happy to accept passively the disgorgement of bare-bones law into my open and willing brain. I like the jokes that the lecturers use in between this dumping-into-brain action, but I also find myself thinking, "OK, more rules--NOW."

I hope, though, that law students, with fifteen glorious weeks of study and (often) open-book exams, don't feel the same way.

Maybe we profs should all take the bar again, if only to appreciate more deeply why the most common question during lecture is "will this be on the exam". I'm sure you'll pass with flying colors, Nancy, but good luck!!

Thanks, Jason--and I sure hope that you're right about the bar! In any event, I'm learning a lot about how to be a better teacher....
All the best,
