Florida Board of Bar Examiners to Publish Essay of FAMU Law Graduate

When the Florida Board of Bar Examiners publishes its biannual study guide on its website in August 2017, the Board will include an essay written by a Florida A&M University (FAMU) College of Law graduate who took the February bar exam. The Board has notified Marcus Prince, a member of the 2016 graduating class, that his essay on Trusts/Family Law and Dependency/Ethics has been selected to be included in the guide that is published to assist individuals studying to take the Florida portion of the bar exam.

The study guide features questions and essays from previous bar examinations along with examples of good answers. Prince’s essay on Trusts/Family Law was selected from more than 1,000 essays submitted by individuals who took the February 2017 the bar exam. While Prince’s name will not be printed in the guide, he expressed pride in knowing that his work will proudly represent his alma mater.

“I’m honored to be given an opportunity to help support other bar takers while also demonstrating the real value of a FAMU College of Law legal education,” Prince said.

He also offered a few words of encouragement for recent graduates who are studying to take the Florida Bar exam in the future, emphasizing the necessity of taking a commercial bar review course and urging grads to take full advantage of FAMU College of Law resources, such as the Florida Bar Law and Skills course.

“The greatest challenge facing bar exam takers, in my opinion, is figuring out what works best for you,“ he said. “With the solid foundation I received from the College of Law, I was able to implement what I found to be an efficient and effective strategy for taking the bar exam.  The results far exceeded my expectations.”
