VA Bar Exam Advice with Judge Thacher, January 17

For those taking the VA bar this year or next, Judge Jonathan Thacher, Fairfax Circuit Court Judge and GMU graduate, will provide strategies and tips for passing the VA Bar on Tuesday, January 17 in Room 221 beginning at 5:00 p.m. and lasting until roughly 6:00 p.m. Since graduating in 1980, Judge Thacher has become a local expert on taking the bar. He has spoken about the VA bar to a variety of groups - including George Mason students - and he has compiled study notes and test taking insights.

A compilation of Judge Thacher's original and comprehensive bar notes and a 2002 supplement to those notes are presently available for purchase in the Copy Center in the library. They are listed under Judge Thacher's name.  (Note: You do not need the notes for the review session; however, in the past many students have purchased the notes after attending the Judge's lecture.) If you cannot arrive exactly at 5:00, you can join the session at any point between 5:00 and 6:00.
