Bar Exam Redux

As much as it pains me to say it, it's true: In six weeks I will sit for the Pennsylvania Bar Examination. No, I'm not moving to Pennsylvania. What happened is my firm recently opened an office in Philadelphia and I've been asked to become a licensed Pennsylvania attorney so I can help with cases in the new office.  Awesome! It's been four years since I sat for the Maryland bar. Back then I had the luxury of making the bar exam my one and only job. I studied day and night and followed BarBri to a T.


  1. I will pass along what a friend of mine told me when I was getting ready to sit for the Md. Bar:

    “What are you so worried about? It’s just a minimum competency test.”

  2. Try sitting for a full bar exam with four children at home under the age of six, practicing full time in a New York firm, and pregnant. I’m not complaining, I’m just saying it can be done. And by the way, we had two dogs, also. Good luck on the bar exam.
