Professor Berman has lectured nationwide for a number of commercial bar reviews for more than two decades, preparing students for both substantive and skills portions of the bar exam. Along with UCLA Law Professor Paul Bergman, Berman co-authored The Criminal Law Handbook: Know Your Rights, Survive the System, and Represent Yourself in Court: How to Prepare and Try a Winning Case, both published by http://www.nolo.com – and both of which are excellent introductory resources for law students who want to learn more about civil litigation and about the criminal justice system. Berman has also published numerous articles and study guides, and she blogs regularly about law school and bar exam success. This Fall, the ABA will publish a bar exam preparation text Professor Berman has recently authored, along with a companion teacher’s edition manual.
