Too many bar prep courses bury you in an avalanche of rules that are almost never tested. You can’t possibly memorize all of them—and you don’t need to.
We analyzed the bar exam to figure out what you really need to know. After identifying the most tested principles, we asked our amazing professors to break them down, always focusing on how the examiners actually apply the rules. Our content is curated and concise, with more of what matters and less of what doesn't.
Our listen-anywhere lectures let you brush up on bar prep as you cross the quad, commute to work, or go for a spin. When you’re back at your desk, you can use our targeted fill-ins, assessments, and outlines to reinforce what you heard.
Free your feet. Leave your screen. Learn anywhere.
Whether you're a visual, verbal, aural, or tactile learner, we've got you covered. Our course features audio lectures and question explanations, interactive transcripts, color-coded outlines, diagrams, flashcards, and more.
We put it all together with **proven teaching techniques,** including short, focused lessons, spaced repetition, pattern-based learning, strategic knowledge check-ins, and multiple channels of reinforcement, so you can clear the bar with room to spare.
