Über den Autor:
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.
