It’s not terribly unusual for a law grad to need to take the bar exam more than once to pass. But the experience of failing the bar can be crushing to one’s confidenceā€“and concentration. After failing the bar exam, many students have a hard time studying for a retake. This is not necessarily because they can’t do the work, but because anxiety and fear of failure get in the way, Jamie Kleppetsch of John Marshall Law School tells the ABA Journal’s Stephanie Francis Ward in this month’s Asked and Answered.
