BarEssays.com, a website devoted to the study of the essay portion of the California Bar Examination, has partnered with former bar graders of the California Bar Exam to offer a comprehensive bar exam essay preparation service. “BarEssays initially began to collaborate with former official bar graders this past year, with tremendous success” said Gil Peles, founder of BarEssays.com. “Now, we have taken that collaboration to a whole new level.”
The California State Bar Exam is required to become a licensed attorney in California. It is the most notorious standardized examination in the country, with pass rates usually around 30-50%. The essay portion of the California Bar Exam is the most important, counting for 2/3 of the score.
Traditionally, students would rely upon a California Bar Exam review course, which provided practice essays and “model” sample answers written by employees of the review course. This approach was not ideal, as students did not know whether the review course sample essay answers were reflective of actual passing California Bar Exam essays.
Enter BarEssays.com, which changed this approach by providing an expansive searchable database of more than 2,000 actual high and low scoring essays from past Cal Bar Examinations. On BarEssays.com, a student can practice any of the last one hundred questions tested on the California Bar Exam, and then compare his or her practice essay to actual high and low scoring examples. Many review courses, law schools, and tutors recommend BarEssays.com to their students as a essay preparation supplement.
Now, through BarEssays.com’s new partnership with former graders of the California Bar Exam, students will be able to practice a prior essay, review high and low scoring examples of that essay, view detailed commentary by former bar graders about why essays received certain scores, read a “model” answer written by a former bar grader and, for an extra fee, submit the student’s own practice essay to be graded and reviewed by an official former bar grader.
“In my view, the material and services provided by BarEssays.com for the essay portion of the California Bar Exam is leaps and bounds ahead of any other program or material available anywhere” said Peles. “For this reason, I expect BarEssays.com to continue to be considered the ‘gold standard’ of California Bar Exam essay prep by Cal Bar tutors, review courses, and law schools.”
