My general view is that folks studying for the bar should sit the movement out for 2.5 months. You should think long term about how you can have the biggest impact on creating social change, and getting your law license will make a difference. It’s a short period of time in a lifetime of movement building. That’s still true. But you’ve got to take a break anyway for your mental health and productivity, so you might as well make it count.
There are always a few things that are more important than bar study, even during this short period of time. Your health and the health of your loved ones are always primary. So is protecting our country from fascism.
You still need to spend most of your time studying for the bar. But it’s also ok to take a break and get into the streets this Saturday. You can get back to studying on Sunday.
