  • D.S., Esq., passed the February 2016 Cal Bar Exam

    If you’re like me, you’re cautious about taking advice from a stranger, particularly online.  Do yourself a HUGE favor—this time, ignore that otherwise well-intentioned instinct and listen up.

    If you were unsuccessful on the California Bar, the best thing you’ve done since learning that unfortunate result is you found Steven Harris.

    If you have not yet taken the California Bar, the smartest thing you could possibly do, before anything else, is hire Steven Harris.

  • 2015 Irvine Grad, 2d timer, passed February 2016

    Steven Harris was my number one cheerleader throughout the entire bar prep process, but he never sugar coated anything, which is exactly what a repeat taker needs. The WINNIN' TIME! book was a lifesaver, and the mnemonics – as crazy as they were – actually worked for memorization purposes. I really wish I had the WINNIN' TIME! book when I was a 1L, but you can’t win ‘em all! (Pun intended).  And most importantly, Steven's memorization plan for the bar was essentially flawless.

  • Ryan Davis, Esq.

    Hi Steven! 
     
    I'm getting home late and have work early in the morning but I want you to know that my name is on the pass list.  I really want to thank you for all the help you gave me; it got me through one of the hardest things I've ever done.  I will recommend your program to whoever is looking for bar tutoring.  I really did learn valuable approaches from you and it made the difference for me.

  • Kastle Lund-Turner, Esq. - Took the PT Class with only 13 days to go and PASSED July 2015!

    A month before the California Bar, I was still unable to complete a Performance Test. I knew I could not pass without mastering the PT, so I turned to Professor Harris for help on July 15, which was four days after his PT Class ended.   After I registered for the course, he sent me the lectures within a half-hour.  Within a week, his technique and words of wisdom put me on the path to success.  I passed!  -- Kastle Lund-Turner, Esq., passed the July 2015 California Bar Examination

  • Katherine Teo-Gillette, Esq.

    I passed on my second attempt thanks to Steven Harris’s program.  I am a foreign attorney dually qualified in England and Singapore and Steven's methods helped me focus on exactly what I needed to do to pass the California Bar Examination.  I also worked full-time up until 2 weeks before the exam.

    The pass rate for the July 2015 Cal Bar Exam was 46.6% as noted from the Cal Bar's press release.  The last time the overall pass rate was this low was in 1986, when the exam wasn't even called the July 1986 exam.  It was called the "Fall 1986" exam, and the pass rate was 44.4%.

    WORKS WITH ANY BAR STUDY PROGRAM OR SELF-STUDY!

    You've missed issues in law school. Or on the Bar Exam. The #1 reason first-timers and repeaters fail the Bar Exam is that they miss issues on the essays. Worse yet, first-timers and repeaters don't know that they've missed issues until 3-4 months AFTER the exam! And even worse than that, have you ever asked your law school prof about how to improve your ability to issue spot? A bar course prof? What were you told? Tell me if this sounds familiar: just look at enough essays and you'll be fine!

  • Cal Bar Exam changes for July 2017 - you can care now

    Oct
    12

    Hello everyone!

    I last wrote that Cal Bar was going to change the exam in July 2017 and that applicants should not care about it.  At the time, that advice was correct since inexplicably the Bar voted to make the change on the day before the July 2015 Cal Bar Exam.

    Now that the exam has come and went, we can consider the impact of the changes to the exam.  So... what's changing?

    Currently, the Cal Bar has the following components:

    Tuesday:  3 1-hour essays in the morning, and one 3-hour PT in the afternoon

  • Northwestern Law School Alum, Esq.

    Steven was instrumental in helping me pass the CA bar exam.  I had taken the exam once prior, and was amazed to see how poor my score was, particularly in the essay and PT sections.  Fortunately, this was Steven's area of expertise.  He laid out a format and study plan that simplified the essay writing process and gave me great confidence on those days of the exam.  After practicing (a lot of practice) with Steven's essay writing tips, and getting his in depth feedback on practice essays, the process became mechanical by test date, saving me valuable time on the exam.  Moreover, Steven was

  • Tahnjah Poe, Esq.

    This third time around, I studied differently and used a cocktail consisting of: hardcopy and computerized MBEs intermittently to get a different feel; my essay books and WINNIN' TIME! to review subjects and essay outlines (no lectures); the schedule from previous attempts up to Feb 2, 2015, when I began Essay Review Week with The Trigger List; and back to Winnin Time with my memorization plan beginning Feb 9th for 14 days. I listened to the study lectures I still had for PT from your program along with some samples from my books.

  • Enrico "Rick" Callender, Esq. - WINNIN' TIME!

    I used the WINNIN' TIME! approach and it was immensely helpful in my passing the California Bar Exam.  The outlines in WINNIN' TIME!, the approach to issue spotting, and writing for tough questions like evidence and professional responsibility really paid off during law school and the Bar Exam.

  • Daniel Felix, Esq. - WINNIN' TIME! and The Trigger List

    I can say with the utmost confidence that I would not have passed the bar without WINNIN' TIME! or The Trigger List during my bar prep. I'm not one to give up and either is Steve.  From the moment you pick up WINNIN' TIME! you realize the Bar is not an insurmountable task rather its a test that requires you to score points.  Before WINNIN' TIME! I was not getting the points because I was not playing the game right.  Steve helped change that for me.
