Step-By-Step Substantive Approaches

Professor Shari Karney’s philosophy: Why re-invent the wheel? The Bar Exam is a standardized test and the Bar Graders are looking for standardized answers. Our Approach Book (Bar Bible”) is designed to give you the materials the way you need to write it on the actual Bar Exam, step-by-step.

BarWinners materials are unmatched in the field. The Approach Book, which Bar-takers refer to as the “Bar Bible,” lays out the material in exactly the way the Bar Grader wants to see it, Bar Ready in answer blueprints (beyond IRAC).

Owner and Creator, Shari Karney, Esq. designed and wrote The Approach Book, the foundation of the BarWinners Courses. The Approach Book covers all the essay-tested areas–Contracts, Torts, Remedies, Evidence, (compares and contrasts, California “CEC”, Federal “FRE”), Real Property, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure, Civil Procedure (California “CCP”, Federal “FRCP”), Business Associations, Community Property, Trusts, Wills, and Professional Responsibility, (compares and contrasts, California “CRPR”, with the “ABA” and “Model Rules”).
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 also give you the substantive law within the fact situations tested by the Bar Examiners. 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.

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 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.

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. We give you what you need to pass.

Personal Mentoring to Help You Pass the Bar

Every student is assigned a seasoned, licensed California attorney bar exam mentor, trained in BarWinners methods and techniques to help you pass the bar. Work one-on-one via e-email.

BarWinners Shows You How to Apply What You are Learning

Passing the California Bar Exam isn’t about who is the smartest or even who will make the best attorney. It’s about making the California Bar grader’s job easy, and giving them what they are asking for.  We give you what they need to see so they can give you the points you need to pass.

You cannot learn the law in a vacuum. You need something to attach it to in your memory. Learning and applying the law helps memorization, writing skills, and analysis. At BarWinners you get comfortable with applying what you know to questions, and analyzing fact patterns so it becomes second nature to you. Then, sitting for the actual bar feels like you’ve been there and done it before.

Here’s what we’ve discovered about all bar exam takers; Students get so focused on trying to memorize and learn the substantive law that they forget to practice what is essential to passing the bar — application.

What will get you through the California bar exam is daily essay writing practice, daily structured MBE practice, and an organization method and writing strategy that works under the time pressure of the Performance Test.

Simulated Exams

BarWinners simulates The California Bar Examinations for all three sections of the Bar Exam. You must write the exams under the timed restrictions and upload them by the cut off time to have them graded. By doing Simulated exams under timed conditions, it helps you become more comfortable and de-sensitized to the stress of taking the actual Bar Exam.

Your exams are carefully graded by experienced bar graders who are also licensed California attorneys.

Comprehensive Feedback

Our instructors know what you need to do to pass the Bar and they impart that knowledge to you with care and respect.

We grade your exams like the Bar grades exams. We do not inflate grades to give you a false sense of security. We grade within 2.5 points of how that essay or performance test would score on the actual Bar Exam. We show you how to fix your writing to make it more Bar-friendly and guide you in every way possible.

In your one-on-one private tutorial session, your Gold Tutor gives you additional feedback and shows you one-on-one, how to fix your writing to make the grader’s job easier. Remember, passing the Bar is about giving the California bar grader what they are looking for.

In your private tutorial session your Gold Tutor will show you how to outline an essay question or performance exam with you, and will show you how to do it step-by-step.

We give you precise, focused, accurate feedback. Our California licensed attorney graders show you how to turn what you are doing into a passing essay or performance test score.

You may think that you aren’t ready to practice essay writing until you’ve memorized and learned all the law, which is the mistake most of us made in law school. By the time our outlines were done and we felt comfortable taking a practice exam, we ran out of time. BarWinners Simulated Exams help decrease test anxiety when you sit for the actual bar exam.

Structured Study

BarWinners focuses your studying, helps you get on a structured study schedule, and coaches you step-by-step on how to write a passing answer, performance test, and score higher on the MBE, all within the California Bar Exam’s time limitation.

In your tutorial sessions, your Gold Tutor will focus your studying, prioritize a “punch list” of what to get done that day, help you get on a structured study schedule, and works with you step-by-step showing you how to write a passing answer and performance test.

Complete Tutoring On All Three Parts of The Bar


Essay Questions

BarWinners lays out the substantive law the way the California Bar Graders want to see it on your essays.

Our substantive outlines are condensed for you and contain the essential information needed to write passing bar essays. We eliminate the “noise” of unimportant information common in commercial bar outlines. We pre-write the issues and law for you, in exactly the format you will apply it on the actual Bar Exam.
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 straightforward and easy to memorize and apply. You learn the law through essay application.
You are given all the headings, sub-headings, and rules of law, as they need to appear on your Bar Exam essay answer. Then you apply the facts to the pre-memorized approaches during the actual exam. This maximizes your issue spotting and you will find your answers practically write themselves.

We believe in giving you what the bar graders need to see for maximum points. Our lectures and materials are user-friendly, with the right amount of law, but not so much, that you can't memorize or apply it.

On-Demand streaming video lectures give you the substantive law that you need to pass the essays. In addition, the lectures review and emphasize what is commonly tested. We stress how to write the essays -- what to do and what not to do -- so you maximize your time AND maximize your bar score. We teach you to hit the “buzz words” and the issues needed. We show you how to signpost and IRAC your essays.

The purpose of the essay lectures is to give you a clear, short, substantive writing approach for each essay tested area, and then show you how to apply that approach to actual bar exam essays.

Performance Tests

The Performance Test dramatically impacts your final score because it counts for more than 25% of your total score. If you struggle with the Performance Test, want help in improving your performance technique, need to cut down on time wasters and increase your score, BarWinners is for you.
Our Performance Test Workshop videos will show you organizing tips and tricks to make the performance test a positive experience that can improve your performance score. Since the Performance Test is such a large percentage of the exam, a strong score can compensate for average or weak MBE scores or other grades elsewhere on the exam.

MBE (Multi State)

Our Multistate Workshop videos are tailored to meet your MBE needs. We particularly focus on those of you who struggle, or have just never liked multiple-choice questions and/or standardized tests. We cover issues and questions that are consistently repeated on the MBE. Each MBE video series has a short substantive law lecture to review the heavily tested areas for the MBE. We teach the nuances and subtle distinctions which are now so common on the MBE.

We show you how to take each question so you finish on time with a high score. We teach you how to deal with longer fact patterns and how to eliminate the three incorrect answer choices. This fixes the problem of MBE takers who are able to narrow the answer choices down to two, but struggle picking the correct choice.

After watching the BarWinners MBE Workshop videos many of our students show a 20 to 30-question raw score improvement (even on Real Property and Evidence MBE questions).

They must see immediately 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.
