Our Michigan bar exam essay course contains a superior individualized approach that is specific to the essay portion Michigan bar exam. Our course is held in a small-group setting and we keep close track of each of the students in it to make sure everyone is on track to pass. We create the best Michigan bar review outlines that are precisely tailored to the Michigan bar exam.  We provide high-quality and highly-tested information in an easy-to learn, concise format. We make our outlines and design the lectures for our classes by literally reading through every past bar exam from 1990 through the present date and drawing attention to the issues that are most frequently and most recently tested.

We also provide predictions of the issues that will be tested on the upcoming bar exam. We do this by studying the highly-tested topics as well as the topics that are most recently and frequently tested. For the July 2016 bar exam we accurately predicted many of the issues on the bar exam including:

  • We predicted that Miranda would be tested on the Criminal Procedure question
  • Delegation and Modification under the UCC (both comprised the entire Sales question!)
  • Bailments and Statutory Conversion in the Personal Property question (the whole question!)
  • Hearsay and Convictions for Impeachment in the Evidence question
  • Trade fixtures in Real Property (which was half the question)
  • Reporting Professional Misconduct (Rule 8.3) in Professional Responsibility (the entire question)
  • Elements of a valid will and valid holographic will as well as defining a child for the purposes of intestate succession (the entire question)

Note: We make no guarantees that the information that we go over will be tested on the upcoming Michigan bar exam. However, we will go over the highly-tested information that is likely to appear again.

We provide something different than nationalized bar review courses.

Many of our students find that they receive extremely high scores on the essay portion of the Michigan bar exam.  In fact, almost all of our students score between 140 and 160 on the Michigan bar exam (which is well above the passing score of 135). We have many repeat bar exam students increase their score by 20 or 30 points(!) on the Michigan bar exam.

about our Michigan Bar Exam Course.

Why should I take your course? 

Many students wonder why they should take our essay course — especially if they are signed up with a Barbri or Kaplan course. We recommend it for all of the following reasons:

  • We teach in a small group setting (usually 10-20 students) and allow for conversation and questions. Nationalized bar review courses do not keep nearly as close of track of you as we do. Further, national courses do not allow you to ask questions during lecture. We do.
  • Our outlines are so much better! Our outlines are precisely tailored to the Michigan bar exam. We tell you exactly what you need to know and do not need to know to pass.  We highlight the heavily-tested issues so you can spend your time efficiently when you study.
  • Our law is updated. Many commercial courses fail to update their outlines for Michigan-specific subjects and, as such, students answer questions incorrectly. We constantly update the law in our outlines so we can make students aware of changes.
  • Our materials are better, period. In addition to our outlines, we give each student a copy of our book, How to Pass the Michigan Bar Exam. This book is invaluable in that it teaches our strategy for the essay portion and contains one-sheets of the highly-tested topics likely to come up on the Michigan bar exam.
  • We offer extensive essay grading. We assign essays each week and review all of them. We provide personalized feedback so that you know you are on track.
  • We provide updated essays. We provide you with all Michigan essays, and updated model answers from 1995 to the present date. This is more than many commercial courses provide. We also update each and every model answer to reflect current law.
  • We provide weekly to-do lists. We tell you what you need to do and hold you accountable. You do not have to guess on what you should be doing each day for the essay portion of the bar exam. We tell you exactly what to do.
