  • The Trigger List



    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


    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.

  • Denise P., Esq. - WINNIN' TIME!

    Steven Harris'  WINNIN' TIME! study aid includes everything you need to pass the essays.  It includes a comprehensive list of concise rules for every subject tested, which can easily be memorized, as well as critical information and strategies for how to approach any type of essay.  If you weren't a "natural" at taking law school essay exams, I believe Steven's essay approach is essential for passing the CA Bar Exam.  Steven knows what the California Bar Examiners want to see in a passing answer. -- Denise P., Esq, passed the July 2014 California Bar Examination

  • Denise P., Esq. - The Trigger List

    In a nutshell, Steven truly provides the most COMPREHENSIVE, yet surprisingly methodical and easy to follow, study approaches for mastering performance tests and essays.  I am so happy that I picked up The Trigger List (an essential for issue spotting).  It is how I came to discover that Steven offered personal tutoring.  THANK YOU, Steven, it is because of your intensive feedback and easy-to-follow strategies that I received a passing score on the California Bar Exam!   -Denise P., Esq., passed the July 2014 California Bar Examination

  • Denise P., Esq

    I found that attending Steven Harris's Performance Test class and applying the specific techniques from his Guide to Performance Tests on the California Bar Exam were both essential to passing the California Bar Exam.  During the exam I was able to complete both performance tests to my satisfaction, spell check them, and still had time to spare on both. I never could have done that prior to taking Steven's PT class and applying the techniques in his Guide. -- Denise P., Esq., passed the July 2014 Cal Bar Exam

  • Anna M., Esq.

    I passed the July 2014 California Bar Examination with Steven's perspicacious one-on-one tutelage and relentless encouragement. When I hired Steven as my tutor I was 100 points away from passing the Bar Examination.  Steven's three-month long, one-on-one tutoring program was unquestionably intrinsic to my success on the exam.

  • Mathew Jackson, Esq.

    Steven Harris was the all-around best!  I had been told by many instructors that there were no effective techniques to approaching the PT - Steven proved them wrong!  When it came to the essays, Steven's "Winnin' Time" and "The Trigger List" left me with a true confidence that I could identify and respond to any issue thrown my way.  Steven even helped me identify common patterns in the MBE questions!
  • Victor Twu - WINNIN' TIME!

  • Victor Twu, Hastings transfer to Boalt Hall

    Professor Harris has been a wonderful teacher and his instruction has been an integral part to my success.  I entered my first year at UC Hastings not knowing a thing about how to approach law school or exams.  Yet with Professor Harris’s simple yet effective techniques, I managed to place in the top 6% of my class after the first year and will now be transferring to Boalt Hall.   Two simpl
  • Ria Mae Pascual - law student transfer from Hastings to UCLA

    Steven Harris taught the legal writing and research component during my 1L year at UC Hastings College of the Law. Regardless of prior academic success and experience in the legal field, the transition to law school is a skill and learned practice in itself. Professor Harris has a systematic approach to conquering the challenges of law school, which must work because several of the students from my section ranked in the top of our class.
  • Rachel Koch, Esq. - The Trigger List

    This compilation of past essay questions and key words was so incredibly lifesaving.  During my bar exam there was a Professional Responsibility question that was quite out of the ordinary. Four people in my row agreed they "didn't know what that was about" and "just didn't answer it". 
  • Rachel Koch, Esq. - WINNIN' TIME!

    I lived and breathed this book. I recall my initial attempt to pass the bar involved countless hours of outlining, highlighting, and arranging. Steve's WINNIN' TIME! did all that for me AND was so to the point and direct that it was so easy to capture and remember everything with no exasperation whatsoever.
