What the hell was Essay #3 about!!!!!???????

Adam said...

i think essay three was about a material-man's lien or a construction lien. B might have ratified the agreement between the two K and S which may have then obligated her to pay S. what about essay 11?

I said term. Sally but not Robert. BS'd a lot on that one.

Day 3 was a bitch compared to Days 1 and 2.

Not sure I racked up enough points on Day 3. I probably failed due to the essays. Damn.

Having studied dozens of past exams, I'd say on this one we were royally screwed--it was far more difficult than most exams before Feb 07. Seems like BLE was trying to make up for the high passage rate from July 2007. I know Crim Pro in my sleep, and the P&E was still tough. For the essay portion, Barbri was a waste of time. I only knew about materialmen's liens from working for an attorney. I have no clue whether I passed, honestly, and I studied my tail off.

Is there any way to see some model answers for feb 2008? I would like to see if I can get a better idea if I passed or not...I have done some internet searches, but have come up with nada. Is there maybe an email going around wherein some students have thoughts about what their answers were? I am an attorney out of state, and I took this in February, and have no one to ask really...thks

I don't know about any model answers, but the Texas BLE has the questions posted in Adobe. They also have the comments from past bar exams online, though the comments from February are not up yet.

anonymous and adam:

question 3 was a mechanic and materialman's lien question, not a contracts problem. Weird quirky TX property law concerning the perfection of the lien and a newer statute requiring notice to the property owner by the original contractor regarding his K with the sub.
