I was going to take the bar in Wisconsin and I decided against it. Not sure if I want to pursue a career as an Attorney when the market is saturated as is. I think that many of the exams in US law schools are multiple choice. When it comes time to take the bar, many students are not used to the format.
Barbri or similar are very expensive. I studied in a separate common law district and would be well prepared for the essay section. Training materials aren't enough for others I know. It takes years to get good at exam essays.
I'm confused. I thought that in order to practice law in the USA a person was required to pass the bar exam before they could be sworn in as a lawyer. A J. D. would have such high student loans they pretty much have to be a lawyer to pay them. No?
