  • Description

    Often overlooked and under-emphasized in commercial bar review courses, the essay portion of the Michigan Bar can truly save examinees on the Michigan Bar Exam.

It is far easier to improve your essay score on the bar exam than your MBE score—and this book is designed to do just that!
