    There are definetly some similarities comparing the US tests (how you described) to the German tests. Thank you for the POV of an American Law student, very interesting for a German Law student. Especially for me, as I am considering to study Law in the US after I finish my Exams in Germany.
    Again, thank you very much for your effort! Really informative channel.

    well it is something immutable, it's a question of high verbal IQ which if it is anything like regular IQ is a genetic trait and no amount of learning will make one improve. in short school isnt for everyone and thats okay the world needs carpenters and cooks too

    Hi. Unfortunately, many law professors in Spain — perhaps in the US, as well — phone it in, so we are not taught how to approach an issue spotting exam-styled assessment. We are tested in three parts: 1) a section on basic knowledge of the law, usually multiple choice and usually not easy; 2) a section on our understanding of theory, consisting of succinct explanations of various legal concepts; and 3) a section on our ability to apply our knowledge of the law and legal concepts (not necessarily from sections 1 and 2), consisting of a case and our proposed resolution of the case. I have recently heard of the IRAC method used by law students in the US. While I have, on my own, figured out some way of answering these sections, I think a structured and repeatable approach to answering would be beneficial. What are your views on IRAC? Are there other, perhaps better, ways to approach these questions? Is the answer to this question proprietary? 😉

    I think one helpful thing to be mindful of is that there is rarely one correct way to apply the law. Usually in these issue spotting exams you are being asked to step into the shoes of litigator. You need to know the law and explain how it applies to the case. You can make an argument that your professor may disagree with. But be aware of what the counterargument is and mention it. The idea is that you should be making a sound legal argument that could plausibly hold up in court- even if a judge or jury may ultimately rule against you.
