About Selina Farrell
Selina Farrell is a tutor for Bar Exam Toolbox. As a student at Pepperdine Law, she participated in moot court, served as editor-in-chief of the Law Review, and graduated summa cum laude and first in her class. She then worked for a large, international law firm as a corporate tax lawyer and, after a few years, lucked out and found her way back to teaching law school classes at her alma mater. For more than ten years, she has taught a variety of courses, including Legal Research and Writing, Advanced Litigation Writing, Federal Income Taxation, and academic success and bar exam preparation courses. She also has managed the law school’s career development office and currently serves as the law school's Associate Dean for Student Success.
Selina loves teaching and working with students – particularly those who experience challenges adapting to law school and preparing for the bar exam – and helping them along the path to success in their academic and professional careers. She finds that the skills necessary to excel in law school and on the bar exam do not always come naturally, but most students can learn them with some dedicated effort and the encouragement and support of a helpful mentor.
