Pieper Courses : Concentrated Weekends
Pieper Concentrated Weekends
Designed and scheduled for the working person repeating the NYS Bar Exam who scored within 35 points of 665, this course will meet on six Sundays to assist students who cannot attend a full-time bar review program. Classes will be taught live by Professor Troy G. Pieper at New York University School of Law. Please note that, while we consider attendance of the live sessions in this abridged course to be important, class will be recorded each week and students who cannot attend one or two classes will be able to make those classes up. Enrollment is strictly limited.
Using substantive materials they have amassed from their prior bar review course experience, students will be required to diligently prepare the assigned substantive law areas in advance of each class. Written substantive law outlines from Pieper Bar Review texts will be provided to students who did not previously take the full Pieper Bar Review course to fill in gaps students may have in their own materials. The Concentrated Weekend classes will then serve as a streamlined, efficient review of the most critical points of substantive law in the context of bar exam MBE and essay questions.
In addition, the classes will enable students weekly to test (through extensive multiple choice and writing exercises) their knowledge, comprehension and retention of substantive law while working toward higher MBE scores and written averages. For example, in addition to completing MBE assignments outside of class from actual released MBE exams, each week students will complete actual MBE questions in the assigned substantive areas being covered. Troy G. Pieper will then conduct a substantive review and analysis of the questions while imparting strategies and techniques for success on the MBE.
With respect to writing, students submit five actual NYS Bar Exam essays as well as an actual released MPT for grading and extensive written feedback. They will also prepare additional NYS Bar Exam essays and another released MPT under exam conditions for immediate critique in class. In addition to providing this extensive essay writing practice and instruction, Troy G. Pieper will review in class dozens of prior New York Bar Exams and provide detailed approaches to hundreds of heavily tested, recurring issues.

NOTES: Troy G. Pieper advises students taking this course to begin studying immediately so as not to waste the valuable time leading up to the bar exam. This study should constitute an in-depth, systematic review of substantive materials, starting with areas in which the individual's score sheet demonstrates a deficiency. By addressing problem areas early on, students will be better equipped to keep up with the fast pace we will undertake leading up to the bar exam.
Additionally, don't let this course's high repeater pass rate lull you into a sense of false security. Mr. Pieper advises those whose most recent NYS Bar Exam final score is below 630 to take a full bar review course rather than any weekend course. In Mr. Pieper's experience, scores below 630 evidence substantive law deficiencies that are most effectively remedied through full-time study in a full bar review course.
