4-Month Program Information


The 4-Month Program includes everything from the 3-Month Program, but also includes 7-1/2 additional hours of lecture to provide detailed attack plans for each subject.  The lectures are organized around the different ways in which each subject is tested.  Within each essay type, discussion focuses on issue-spotting problems, difficulties in understanding the rules, and presentation, as well as focus on traditional questions and depth questions.  The 4-Month Program is designed for students who have not taken a bar exam in several years; students from a foreign country; students from another jurisdiction who have little or no background in California-specific subjects such as Wills, Trusts, Professional Responsibility, Civil Procedure, and Evidence; or who scored profoundly low on a prior exam (i.e., under 1250).

Another benefit of the 4-Month Plan is for experienced attorneys who work in high-powered private law firms who provide heavy demands on the applicant’s time.  With the 4-Month Plan, we can provide the flattest schedule possible and maximize the potential for a life outside of bar prep and firm life.
