The essay portion of the Bar Exam has become increasingly difficult. Most states test multiple areas of law in a single essay question. When you register for one of our programs, you will practice and improve your essay skills guided by an attorney mentor who hand grades the assignments you submit.
Personalized feedback will help improve your style, sharpen your ability to identify issues, and mold your essays to Bar Examiners expectations. LawTutors’ MiniEssays focus on particular areas of law to assist with the implementation of the IRAC methods preferred by Bar Examiners.
While other exam candidates will be trying to master the elements of their state exam in a mass classroom setting, you will have your own private or semi-private Attorney Instructor.
Small Group Essay Workshops for ANY Bar Exam
These workshops are excellent for students taking the bar in any state. The Base Program’s Essay workshops focus on the key IRAC elements that you will need to know for ANY bar exam. For the essay workshop, you get two of your essays personally graded outside of workshop by both Melissa and Tania.
Each workshop is small group [no more than 8 students], interactive, and intense. Workshops run three hours and include all materials. Workshops are offered in Brookline, MA.
Please see our pricing guide to see how much you can save.
Please note that even though you can choose to take only the Essay track or to take only the MBE track, the course is most effective when taking them both together.

Massachusetts, New York and California “What Not To Write” Book
At LawTutors we love that show What Not To Wear on TLC and wondered if we could relay the same message about bar exam essay writing. So here it is, a tool to help you learn what NOT to write on the bar exam, as well as what TO write.
How is this book different than any other book on writing essays for the bar exam? We show you REAL essay answers: all essays in this book are questions from past bar exams, and the answers are actual essays written by bar candidates. Nothing within the actual essays has been changed; even grammar and spelling are kept intact.
This gives you an idea of what “good” and “bad” essays look like through the eyes of the bar examiner. The only thing that has changed in between what they saw and what you are seeing is the handwriting.
