Wyoming State Bar to Offer Bar Exam Review Course
CHEYENNE - The Wyoming State Bar Law School Liaison Committee is pleased to announce that it will be partnering once again with the University of Wyoming College of Law to offer a review course this spring for those who are planning to take the summer bar exam.
The purpose of the course is to make bar applicants more aware of specific Wyoming rules practitioners need to know in order to effectively practice law in Wyoming. This will not only hopefully help the applicants on the exam, but also help make them better lawyers after they pass the bar exam.
The course will be a two-part program taught by Wyoming lawyers. Topics covered in Part 1 will be torts, property and contracts. New this year will be instruction on short essay writing followed by a writing assessment. There will also be a question and answer session with a representative of the Board of Law Examiners (BLE). The BLE is the Wyoming Supreme Court-appointed body tasked with writing and grading the exam. Part 2 of the course will be scheduled this summer.
"Because the Wyoming Bar Exam often includes questions based on specific aspects of law unique to Wyoming, we believe it will help test-takers and future Wyoming practitioners to be exposed to some of those concepts in each possible exam subject area,” said Greg Dyekman, Chair of the Law School Liaison Committee. “Our thanks to the Wyoming lawyers who have volunteered to teach this valuable course."
The course, titled “Hot Topics for the Wyoming Bar Exam,” will be offered on Wednesday, April 18, 2012, from 6 - 9 p.m. at the University of Wyoming College of Law in Laramie. It is free of charge to anyone wishing to attend.
