Forget About the Bar Exam, Take Antitrust …

Josh Wright —  24 September 2007

Melissa Lafsky at the Freakonomics Blog reports on a study showing no relationship between law school courseload choices and bar passage rates (except in the third quartile of students apparently).  So what to do?  Yet another reason to take antitrust (and I guess other specialized electives if you insist …) rather than enrolling in bar subject courses in the hopes that it will impact bar passage.

    Sure, that sounds reasonable too. But better than antitrust? 🙂


    Perhaps a better strategy would be for law students to take classes in which they could secure the highest grades, thus helping their class rank at little cost?
