Bar Smarts

I was reading my Legal Drafting notes this afternoon when I noticed an amusing slip. Our prof had advised us we should never bring any outside knowledge into the performance part of the bar exam. You only want to work within the closed universe the testers provide. My notes read:

"Don't be creative. Don't bring in actual knowledge."

* MPRE: non-existent body of professional responsibility
* MBE: non-existent body of common law
* CPT: potentially real law, but tested such that ability to analyze and apply doesn't really matter

It makes this process of bar admission seems all the more worthwhile.
