Boots-on-the-ground, focused, clearly structured bar review materials and content.
Then, the On-Line Videos briefly review and reemphasize what is commonly tested.
Secondly, the videos stress how to WRITE THE ANSWER. What to do and what not to do, so you maximize time management AND maximize your potential score – hit the “buzz words” or the issues needed to get as many points available.

In essay classes, we show you how to apply to California Bar Exam questions, the substantive law you are studying. Too often, students try to learn the law in a vacuum.

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 organize, outline and write passing Bar Exam Answers. We will analyze lots of previous Bar Exam questions. During the actual exam, students have told us that “the bar exam practically wrote itself after taking Barwinners.”
We give you the format, style, and structure that the Bar Examiners would like to see on your essay.
