Specifics on the Texas Essay portion of the bar exam
It is imperative that students make their responses as clear and easy to follow as possible. Most bar graders are reading hundreds of essays and have only two to three minutes to grade each essay. It should also be noted that bar exam essay grading is a volunteer activity and not a full-time job. Furthermore, most graders are reading essays in an area that is not their primary area of practice - This means, they are often dependent upon the checklist and other grading materials provided by the bar examiners.
