California Bar Exam Essay Preparation Service to Provide Access to Students at Select Schools, a website devoted to the study of the essay portion of the California Bar Examination, has entered into arrangements with administrators and faculty at seventeen California law schools to provide student access for the Calfornia Bar Exam essay preparation service. “BarEssays has been closely working with a variety of law schools and faculty for the past few years with tremendous results and bar passage improvement." said Gil Peles, founder of BarEssays. “The list of law schools has grown to seventeen, an incredible number."    

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.

In preparing for the essay portion of the exam, students would traditionally rely upon a large California Bar Exam review course, which typically only 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, which changed this approach by providing an expansive searchable database of more than 2,500 actual high and low scoring essays from past Cal Bar Examinations. On, a student can practice over one hundred questions tested on the California Bar Exam, then compare his or her practice essay to actual high and low scoring examples, and view detailed commentary by former official graders of the exam. In addition to law schools, many review courses and tutors emphatically recommend to their students as an important preparation supplement.

Now, administrators and faculty at seventeen law schools have entered into a variety of arrangements with BarEssays, including University of California, Davis School of Law, University of California, Hastings School of Law, University of San Diego School of Law, University of California, Irvine School of Law, Whittier Law School, Santa Clara Law School, Loyola Law School, Thomas Jefferson School of Law, and Pepperdine Law School. Students at these and other select law schools enjoy discounted or free access to, courtesy of the law school arrangements.

“BarEssays is the ‘gold standard’ supplement for California Bar Exam essay preparation." said Peles. “I am thrilled that so many law schools have realized the importance of a BarEssays membership and emphatically stepped up to provide their students with BarEssays access to improve overall bar passage rates."
