Questions

Subject: Writing

Question:

How can you tell if you are using passive voice in your writing? (and you are looking to avoid doing that)

Inactive

Answer:

Look for forms of the verb "to be", such as "is, as, was, were, has been" to ensure that you are being active with your verbs, rather than passive. For example, see the following two sentences. Sentence 1, Active Voice: Jackson transmitted the message to the director. Sentence 2, Passive Voice: The message was transmitted by Jackson to the director.

Question:

Are there any potential flaws or weaknesses in Plato's proposed ideal society in The Republic?

Answer:

Plato neglects to consider the idea of consent in the ideal society, specifically whether or not the people being asked to reproduce with one another are truly consenting, or can truly consent given the circumstances.

Question:

What is the typical structure or format of an answer to an essay question on a law school exam? How is that different/similar to undergraduate exams, and what does that say about the skills needed to succeed in law school?

Answer:

I: Issue R: Rule A: Application C: Conclusion Law school exams tend to include what are known as "issue-spotters" that ask students to read a fact pattern, spot certain issues, identify the appropriate rule of law, apply that rule, and then make a prediction about the outcome given that application. This is different than many undergraduate exams in that often there is no right/wrong answer. Moreover, spotting the issue itself is a huge part of the battle. There won't be a specific question asking you to explain the meaning of x. This means that skills such as careful reading, attention to detail, and the ability to think creatively are all incredibly useful in the law school context.
