6369 Legal Analysis and Writing - LINN- 19102

Professor(s): Rachel Linn (ADJUNCT)

Credits: 3

Course Areas: Practice Skills - (Research and Writing) 

Time: 9:00a-10:30a  MW  Location: 209  BLB

Course Outline: Legal Analysis and Writing will familiarize students with the structure of the UBE, offer bar exam preparation and test-taking strategies, and provide face-to-face and written performance feedback through a series of simulation exercises. This class does not replace traditional, private bar preparation companies (i.e. Barbri, Themis, or Kaplan). Rather, it is employed in conjunction with those programs.

Although the primary focus of the course is the UBE, the course will address general bar exam test-taking strategies with a focus on exam essays, the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE), and Multistate Performance Test (MPT) sections, which are non-state specific and common to almost all bar examinations across the country

Course Notes:   Whether this course will be distance education, or will have a physical room assigned, and if so the extent to which the instructor might use the room during the semester, is not determined at the time when registration initially opens for this course.  You may see contrary indications in the UH systems where you actually register for the course.  In other words, this course might be distance education with no use of a physical classroom. It might be the “HyFlex” mode in which some Law Center courses used a physical room during 2020-21. As we get closer to the start of the term/semester for this course, this course note will be updated as decisions are determined. The instructors will be involved in those decisions, but decisions about modalities may not be invariant throughout the term/semester or between now and when the course starts.


Registration information will be provided to students through their UH email.

This course will receive a Pass/Fail grade.

This course hosts small sections. Some students are subject to mandatory enrollment in this course and will fill seats first. Any remaining spots will be subject to general registration procedures. Once full, if a spot opens, enrollment will proceed from the waitlist.
