Third Year of Law School?

I saw this story and found it very interesting. Eliminate the third year of law school and you can sign me up!

The old saw is that the first year, they scare you to death; the second year, they work you to death; and the third year, they bore you to death.

At our convocation at Emory, the dean observed that he could teach us everything we needed to know to pass the bar exam in six weeks. To which the majority of us facing $60,000 in tuition and fees thought, "Then why in heaven's name are we going to be here for three years!?!?!?"

I'll second that. In 6 weeks of bar review courses, I learned everything that I needed to know in order to pass both exams that I took over a 3 day span (NY and MA) and score high enough to waive into DC. The previous 3 years did not really come into play other than with regard to one question on the MA exam. It turned out that question was tossed out because most people didn't even know what the topic of it was.

I agree with this assessment.

So you're saying I could legitly take a six week course and pass the bar?

If you are smart and study really hard. Yes.
