Designed and scheduled for the working person repeating the bar exam who scored within 15 points of passing the UBE or 35 points of passing the NY exam, this course guides students through a re-review of the substantive law they learned in their prior bar review course experience, while sharpening their writing and multiple choice skills. It meets on seven Sundays to assist students who cannot attend full-time bar review program classes and is taught live by Professor Troy G. Pieper. Lectures will be recorded and made available to students who cannot make every session. Enrollment is strictly limited.

The Concentrated Weekend classes serve as a streamlined, efficient review of the most critical points of substantive law in the context of bar exam MBE and essay questions.

Pieper’s tutors can help you overcome the obstacles standing between you and a license to practice law. Whether you’re struggling with substantive legal concepts, the written components of the exam, or how to select the best answer on a multiple choice questions, your tutor will make sure that you’ve done all you can to prepare for exam day and have you in a position to pass.

Choose from:

  • Pieper’s Advanced Tutoring Program:  The finest professional guidance available. You’ll work with a highly skilled attorney one-on-one to ensure that your essay and MPT writing earns you top scores in any area of the exam, while tackling any areas in which you struggle on the MBE.
  • Pieper’s Supplemental Essay Program: Sharpen your writing skills with an additional five essays and an MPT. Each assignment will be graded and commented on by one of our attorneys, before they walk you through it over the phone in a half-hour discussion of your writing and how you can improve it.

Writing accounts for 50% of a student’s score on the UBE (30% essays and 20% MPTs) and is one of the most difficult and crucial practices to master. In addition to the essay and MPT writing workshops included in the Full Course, Pieper is now offering a specialized essay and MPT review that gives students the opportunity for personalized review and critique of four essay and two MPT questions with one of Pieper’s attorney graders in one-on-one phone conversations as well as detailed and in-depth assessment of each assignment. By working with the same attorney grader, he or she can identify students’ weaknesses and then track their progress as they continue to write. In addition to receiving a grade, students receive extensive feedback and a model answer for review, plus 30 minutes reviewing each submission on the phone (up to 3 total hours for the six submissions) with the attorney grader.

This invaluable feedback will pinpoint and address weaknesses as well as foster an understanding of what bar exam essay graders look for. It is a comprehensive and effective way for students to learn and reinforce good habits in their bar exam writing.
