About the Author:

Trained as a lawyer at Harvard and as a theoretical linguist at the University of Illinois, Dr. Mary Campbell Gallagher is a nationally-recognized authority on the bar examination. She is the author of the book and CDs Scoring High on Bar Exam Essays, originally published by Simon & Schuster in 1991, and now out from BarWrite® Press in a Third Edition. She is president of BarWrite®, which offers Continuing Legal Education and large courses and coaching in New York City preparing law school graduates for the bar examination, and of BarWrite® Press. She originally introduced her Under-Here-Therefore(TM) legal writing system in Scoring High in 1991. Teachers of bar-preparation courses have adopted Scoring High as a textbook.

Dr. Gallagher's ongoing research aims to make a major contribution to lawyers' proficiency through work at the intersection of logic, linguistics, and law. She quotes Peter Drucker: You cannot improve what you cannot measure. In addition to devising the Under-Here-Therefore(TM) legal writing system, she has developed new methodologies for raising bar candidates' scores on the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) and for increasing efficiency in accomplishing common law-office tasks, including those measured by the Multistate Performance Test (MPT).

Dr. Gallagher is a widely-published professional writer. Her essays and reviews have appeared in The Weekly Standard, The New York Observer, The Nation, Legal Times, Newsday, The Brooklyn Papers, Commonweal, and Metro New York. Her articles on legal writing and the bar exam have appeared in National Jurist and Student Lawyer.

A graduate of Barnard College, which awarded her the Montague Prize for distinction in philosophy, Dr. Gallagher also attended St. John's College in Annapolis, Maryland, on whose Board of Visitors and Governors she has served. She has received many awards and honors and four fellowships from the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts.

Dr. Gallagher is a professional speaker. She has served on the Board of Directors of the National Speakers Association, New York City Chapter, which has awarded her the Alan Cimberg Award for her dedicated service and honored her with a special Award of Merit.

Dr. Gallagher passed the New York bar examination in July of 1989. She is a member of the Massachusetts and District of Columbia Bars. She is a member of the Committee on Legal Education and Admission to the Legal Profession of the New York State Bar Association. She is a member of the Federalist Society, the National Association of Scholars, the Authors Guild, the American Society of Journalists and Authors, the New York City Bar Association, the Harvard Club of New York City, the National Arts Club, and numerous other professional, civic, architectural and planning organizations in the United States. She is also a member of the Council of European Urbanism and of SOS Paris.

Review:

Resource for Students Studying for the MPT "In Perform Your Best on the Bar Exam Performance Test (MPT), Mary Campbell Gallagher sets out a 'Four-Part Perform You Best MPT System' .  These timing guides are right on the mark . . . .

Professor Lisa Young, Law School Academic Support Blog


A book like this is long overdue. As far as I can tell, the large commercial bar review courses have yet to fully master how to train students to take the MPT. Mary Campbell Gallagher provides students with a detailed, well-constructed method for succeeding on the MPT and similar exams.

--Perform Your Best on the Bar Exam Performance Test (MPT)

Mary Campbell Gallagher has set a new standard in bar exam preparation materials. One of the reasons so many people have trouble with bar exams is that they don't want to spend time practicing to take the exam by actually taking practice exams under exam conditions. The tone of the instructions here is calm, straightforward, and authoritative. The effect is to instill confidence in the applicant and persuade the applicant that with practice, success is very much possible. I like the way the instructions are given more than once in different ways. Providing so much hands-on practical information is also helpful, like tips about using subject headings and about exactly what a passing answer should contain and how it should look, including length. The instruction in this book is simply priceless.

Chambliss, Jr., President, Board of Law Examiners, Tennessee (former), Member, Evans Petree, Memphis, Tennessee (former), Author, Prince of Peace: A Memoir of an African-American Attorney Who Came of Age in Birmingham During the Civil Rights Movement (2010), Author, Creating Compelling Defense Arguments and Strategies in Personal Injury Litigation, in Representing Defendants in Personal Injury Cases: Leading Lawyers on Developing a Defense Strategy, Navigating the Discovery Process, and Litigating Disputes (2011)

--Perform Your Best on the Bar Exam Performance Test (MPT)

This book is excellent practice and guidance for the California Performance Test (PT), as well as the MPT.
