Description

By the end of this course, you will learn to write successful responses to the 1-hour essays. The IRAC approach is used to organize the lectures. I have decoded the exam and have produced formulas that you can apply. You will see improvements in the key areas of:

- Issue spotting.

- Discussion of major issues.

- Approach to engaging non-major issues.

- knowing when and how to write effective rebuttals.

The formulas will help you stay on course to ensure you a targeting the proper areas. Also, practical application exercises are included.

Moreover, the hypothetical essay examples are from multi-state subjects (property of the State Bar of California). This means that the course is also helpful to current law students throughout the United States.

Here are some of the other concepts you will learn. You will know to perform: 

- Timing techniques that will ensure you complete your response. 

- Outlining strategies.  

- Strategies to writing with confidence.

- Know how to recognize “sucker” issues (rabbit hole discussions).

- Techniques to learning the substantive law.

- Techniques to approaching commercial outlines.

It is in this course where you will develop effective lawyer-writing skills. This is the beginning of your success on the bar. Let’s get started. 

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is for both bar candidates and current law students. Also, this course is intended for those taking a bar review course or for those doing independent study.

After serving in the United States Marine Corps (in the most decorated unit, 2nd Battalion 5th Marines), I graduated from UC Berkeley and then went to the UCLA School of Education. I then served as a teacher with the Los Angeles Unified School District. I earned my Juris Doctor degree from Liberty University School of Law (Virginia).

I passed the California Bar Exam in February of 2015 and was amongst the 39.5% of bar candidates that passed. I then authored the book “1440: Secrets to Passing the California Bar Exam.” I am now the founder and owner of Jurax Bar Prep, LLC.

I am passionate about justice and education. Welcome.
