Step-By-Step Substantive Approaches

Shari’s philosophy: Why re-invent the wheel? The Bar Exam is a standardized test and the California Bar Graders are looking for standardized answers. Our Approach Book (The Bar Review “Bible”) (see sample of Approach Book in Sample Materials link) 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 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.

  • Real Property
  • Constitutional Law

BarWinners materials are awesome. The APPROACH BOOK, which Bar-takers refer to as the “Bar Review Bible,” click here to see sample materials 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 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 1-3 minutes to grade your essays and performance tests.

Master the Performance Test

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 students 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: Student repeatedly rate BARWINNERS’ Performance Exam professor as “Excellent” with comments such as “Wish I had her in law school,” “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.

Essay Writing Workshops — On Demand

We give you what you need to writing a bar exam essay easily. This exam does not test whether you will be a good lawyer. It also doesn’t test how smart you are. It only tests “minimal competency.” 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 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 students have difficulty on the Bar exam, because although they study the law, they need to spend a lot more time on how that law gets applied to actual Bar questions. Barwinners gives you over 70 practice questions that we do on videos and for you to practice for home study. In every essay class video lecture, 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 1-3 minutes to grade your essay. 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. In the Video Lectures for the Online Courses, we give you the exact format, style, and structure that the Bar Examiners would like to see on your essay.
