Shari’s philosophy: Why re-invent the wheel? The Bar Exam is a standardized test and the CA Bar Graders are looking for standardized answers. Our Attorney’s Exam Approach Book (The Attorney’s Exam Review “Bible”) (click here to view sample of Approach Book) is designed to give you the materials exactly the way you need to write it on the actual Bar Exam, step-by-step.
You don’t have to re-organize or re-work the materials in order to write a passing Bar Exam answer. Our substantive approaches and rule statements are simple, straightforward and easy to memorize.
We provide a substantive Attorney’s Exam Approach review for all 14-tested subjects on the Bar Exam. We give you a Bar Ready writing approach for each tested subject and area on the Essay Portion of the Bar Exam. We give you exactly what you need to write for each tested issue. All you have to do is give the Bar Examiners what we give you, and simply fill in the applicable facts.
- Professional Responsibility (ABA & California)
- Evidence (Federal and California)
- Real Property
- Constitutional Law
- Criminal Law
- Criminal Procedure
- Civil Procedure (Federal and California)
- Business Associations
- Community Property
BarWinners materials are awesome. The ATTORNEY’S EXAM APPROACH BOOK, which Bar-takers refer to as the “Bar Review Bible,” lays out the material in exactly the way the Bar Grader wants to see it, Bar Ready in answer blueprints (beyond IRAC).
You are shown how each issue must be written and analyzed. You are given all the headings, sub-headings, and rules of law exactly as they should appear on your Attorney’s Bar Exam essay answer.
All you have to do is apply the facts to the pre-memorized approaches during the actual exam. This maximizes your issue spotting and you will find that your answers practically write themselves.
We give you the headnotes and sub headnotes that you are going to use on the actual exam. We show you what issues you need to write for heavily tested areas. We give you pre-memorized and easy to write rule statements.
Under the stress of sitting for the exam, and the time constraints put on you, we believe in giving you exactly what the readers need to see to score well. Our outlines and materials are user-friendly, with the right amount of law, but not so much, that you can’t memorize anything.
We demonstrate proper format, style and best look for your exams to pass. The Bar Graders take 1-2 minutes to grade your essays and performance tests. We give you what you need to pass.
Learn to Unlock the Secrets of the Performance Test in 15 Minutes
The Performance Test dramatically impacts your final score because it counts for more than 25% of your total score. Each performance test equals two essays; so, the two performance tests are worth four essays. Since the Performance Test is such a large percentage of the exam, a strong score can compensate for average or weak MBE scores or grades elsewhere on the exam.
Timing Issues: First and foremost, BarWinners addresses timing issues to ensure that all attorney bar takers are able to effectively organize and present the key points necessary to pass the bar. We demonstrate how you can control the material instead of letting the material control you.
Our unique Performance Test method eliminates the “reading, writing, and briefing-twice” syndrome that some California Bar Review Courses encourage, and cuts back sharply on the provisional paperwork.
Organization: The Key: We offer practical short-cuts that eliminate all the paper clutter and show you how to make maximum use of your laptop to cut down on duplication, double work, and double entries.
Unlock the Secrets of Passing the Performance Test In the First Fifteen minutes. We show you how to approach all tasks in a manner that organizes your answer to deliver to the grader the requested substance requested by the task memo.
Taught by a Top Performance Test Expert:
Attorney’s repeatedly rate BARWINNERS’ Performance Exam professor as “Excellent” with comments such as “Wish I had her the first time I took the CA Bar Attorney’s Exam,” “The best writing teacher I’ve ever had.” “She was spectacular and made the Performance Exam easy.”
What makes our Performance Professor so good is that our PT Professor shows you how to read, organize, and outline the Performance Exam in 90 minutes or less. She then shows you how to write from your outline a passing exam. THE KEY TO THE PERFORMANCE EXAM IS TIMING AND ORGANIZATION. Once you have a good outline, we know you can write a passing exam.
BarWinners simulates Bar Exam testing conditions. You must do exams online and upload with the live class to have them graded. STRUCTURED, TIMED, SCHEDULED. By doing these simulated exams, it helps you become more comfortable and de-sensitized to the stress of taking the actual Attorney’s Bar Exam in California. You will be more at ease and relaxed when the actual Bar Exam becomes a reality. Since the attorney bar exam and the general bar exam are graded together, we grade your exams the same way.
Then, the On-Line Videos briefly review and reemphasize what is commonly tested, so there\’s even more emphasizing what\’s important and deemphasizing what\’s not.
Secondly, the videos continuously stress how to WRITE THE ANSWER. What to do and what not to do, so you continuously maximize your use of time, AND maximize you potential score – hit the “buzz words” or the issues needed to get as many points available
We grade your exams exactly like the Bar graders do. We do not inflate grades to give you a false sense of security. We show you how to fix your writing to make it more Bar-friendly.
We give you focused, accurate, timely feedback. Our instructors and graders show you how to turn what you are doing into a passing essay or performance test score
After taking the BarWinners MBE Workshop many of our students show a 20-30-question raw score improvement (even on Real Property and Evidence MBE questions).
Professor Karney and our expert team at BarWinners gives you individualized feedback in a small-personalized class setting. WE SEE YOU AND KNOW YOU. WE DO NOT ALLOW YOU TO FALL THROUGH THE CRACKS in passing the California Bar Exam. We show you how to outline, organize and effectively write essays and performance tests so that you can pass the bar exam easily. We provide comprehensive, quality feedback. We use former bar exam graders and licensed California attorneys who are experts on what the California Bar Exam is looking for.
You only have 15 minutes to outline an essay and 45 minutes to write. The California Bar exam grader takes 1-2 minutes to grade your essays. Our essay workshops show you how to take the substantive law and apply it to bar exam questions, for the highest points.
BarWinners is geared to your success at quickly, easily, and clearly, giving the grader what they want and increasing your score. Cut down on their work. Increase your score. Don’t leave points on the table. Don’t assume they know the basics. It doesn’t have to be beautiful or eloquent. Passing the CA Attorney’s Bar Exam is technical writing. Formulaic. BarWinners is the best at showing you how to do this.
We provide a substantive Approach review for all 14-tested subjects on the Bar Exam. We give you a Bar Ready writing approach for each tested subject and area on the Essay Portion of the Bar Exam. We give you exactly what you need to write for each tested issue. All you have to do is give the Bar Examiners what we give you, and simply fill in the applicable facts.
We show you how to apply the law that you are memorizing to actual Bar questions. Barwinners’ believes that attorney’s have difficulty on the Bar exam, because although you study the law, you need to practice applying the law the way the California Bar Exam wants it. Attorneys tend to write like lawyers rather than law students. The bar graders are testing whether you can “pretend” to sound like a lawyer, not whether you actually are a lawyer. Law students pretending to be lawyers, write more basic issues, explain everything, and don’t assume they are talking to other qualified attorneys. Attorney Exam applicants, often risk leaving point on the table, by assuming the basic points are understood by the examiner. Basic points means Points! Barwinners gives you over 70 practice questions that we do in class and in your study group, so you don’t make common attorney exam mistakes. This is the reason that almost every attorney applicant knows a well qualified attorney who failed the CA Attorney’s Exam. Write the Attorney’s Bar as if you were a law student. You’ll score more points!
In every essay class, we show you how to apply to actual bar questions, what you are studying. Too often, students try to learn the law in a vacuum. They may understand the First Amendment in Constitutional Law, but when it comes to writing a passing Bar Exam essay on it, they may get confused, disorganized.
We show you exactly how to outline, organize, headnote, and write a passing bar exam essay for every tested issue on the Bar Exam. Everything you need to do well on the Essays is provided. If you follow what we show you, you WILL PASS.
We demonstrate how to outline a Bar Essay in 15 minutes. The first 15 minutes are key–they will determine whether you pass or fail that essay and ultimately, the Bar Exam.
Remember, the Bar Graders take 1-2 minutes to grade your essay and the graders are paid approximately, $2.75 by the bar examiners per essay and per performance test. You need to give them what they expect to see (i.e. what matches their grading sheet) from the very first sentence of your essay. They must see, right-out-of-the-gate, that you are minimally competent. The Bar Exam is not a test of creativity, or even a test of how good a lawyer you are going to make.
Give them what they want and you will get what you want–to pass this milestone and move on with your life.
You will be taught to easily write passing Bar Exam Answers. We will analyze lots of previous Bar Exam questions. During the actual exam, you will find the answers practically write themselves.
We give you the exact format, style, and structure that the Bar Examiners would like to see on your essay.
- Introduction to Bar Exam Writing
- Professional Responsibility
- Evidence/Constitutional Law
- Real Property/Community Property
- Criminal Law/Criminal Procedure
- Civil Procedure/Business Association
We grade your exams exactly like the Bar Examiners. We give you precise, focused, accurate feedback. Our instructors and graders show you how to turn what you are doing into a passing essay or performance test score.
Our unique Performance Test method eliminates the “reading, writing, and briefing-twice” syndrome that some California Bar Review Courses encourage, and cuts back sharply on the provisional paperwork. Organization is essential: we offer practical short-cuts that eliminate all the paper clutter and show you how to make maximum use of your laptop to cut down on duplication, double work, and double entries.
Timing is critical: we demonstrate how you can control the material instead of letting the material control you.
Whether it is a Memo, Points and Authorities, Discovery Plan, Opening Statement, Ethical Consideration or other Performance task, we show you how to structure, organize and write a passing performance exam answer in the allotted time. Then we give you practice doing it under bar timed conditions. Actually, CA Attorney Exam takers tend to have the most problems initially, with passing the Performance Test on the California Bar Exam. Again, arguments that a law student would make, licensed, Out-of-State Attorney’s don’t make. Because in real life, you wouldn’t make these type of arguments in your court filings and oral arguments. Remember, “pretend” you are a lawyer, don’t actually try and be one on the Attorney’s Exam in California. I know it sounds goofy. But it’s true. Call me, and we will discuss it further. 310.451.0519.
