If you’re studying for the bar exam, you know you need to be writing practice essays, right? Unfortunately, this is easier said than done for most students! If we hear one thing consistently from people who fail the bar, it’s this:
“I knew I needed to practice more consistently, but I just couldn’t make myself do it! It’s really hard to sit down and write under timed conditions every week. I always felt like I had more law to learn before I could start practicing.”
Here’s a Solution
We hear you, and we know it’s hard to write regularly on your own. (Especially when you’re shaky on the relevant law or just overwhelmed by how much you need to know.)
That’s why we’ve developed the Writing of the Week (WOW) Bar Essay Workshops. They’re designed to create weekly accountability — to ensure you’re practicing consistently — and to give you just enough legal knowledge to enable you to write the assigned essays or performance tests. There’s a built-in timing component — to keep you honest — and a wrap-up discussion afterwards to help you evaluate your own work.
With WOW, know you’ll write at least one hour of practice essays a week for the eight weeks leading up to the bar exam (and, hopefully, you’ll be inspired to write a lot more on your own).

Thank you for helping me pass the February 2020 bar exam! The Brainy Bank, POWs, and WOWs helped me remain in control of my bar prep to get a handle on my anxiety that took me out of passing the first time. When my friends ask what made the difference the second time I took the bar and succeeded in passing, I smile and say, “know thy self.” I follow that by explaining how I got control over my studying instead of letting the other bar prep program dictate what to do next. I can not tell you Thank You enough. Thank you for being thoughtful and having the insight to help others traverse the bar exam. Thank you to your team and experts for helping me pass the bar because of their contributions to your programs and website. I will turn to you again in the future when I venture to take the future bar exams that are not UBE states. – Feb. 2020 exam taker
I just want to let you know that your program works! I took the October remote exam, and I was worried about the written portion of the UBE. So I bought your program, and it made a huge difference. I ended up passing with a [high score]. Thanks again! – Oct. 2020 exam taker
Got questions? If you have a question about WOW (or anything else), please don’t hesitate to contact us! We look forward to hearing from you.
Best of luck on the bar exam!
