jd advising michigan bar exam course


Our JD Advising Michigan Bar Exam course is a fantastic alternative to a commercial course. Our course is tailored to exactly what is tested on the Michigan bar exam, and students are monitored closely to ensure they are on track to pass.







We keep close track of each and every JD Advising Michigan bar exam course student. We give you all of the materials that you need (outlines, real MBE questions, and real essay questions) and we tell you what to do each week. We grade essays every single week and track your progress on your essay and MBE scores. We also document progress by handing out weekly quizzes to see if you are adequately memorizing the highly tested areas of law. We check in with you to make sure that you feel confident with your bar exam progress. We keep you accountable so that know you are on track to pass the bar exam and so that you feel confident walking into the exam.



We offer live instruction by bar exam experts! Our Michigan bar exam course teachers are full-time bar exam tutors and instructors and they know the bar exam inside-out. Our instructors know exactly what the examiners like to see (and don’t like to see) in a written essay response. They are a source of valuable information about the Michigan bar exam. During lecture, we go over substance as well as strategies for structure, and timing. We tell you how to answer Michigan essay questions and MBE questions so that you see your score improve. We also cover the substantive law in great detail and focus on the highly tested areas of law.

Our Michigan bar exam outlines are excellent. They’re created by reviewing every single essay exam administered from 1990 to the present date and ensuring that every topic that has been tested  in the last 25+ years is in the outlines. Further, we highlight the highly tested areas so that you can be aware of what is most likely to appear on your exam. We include charts, colors, diagrams, and mnemonics to make it easy to learn the outlines. You will receive outlines for all of the MBE subjects and all of the Michigan subjects. To read more about what sets our outlines apart read this post. To see a PDF sample of our Trusts outline, click on our Trusts Outline Sample. Note that our outlines are tailored to both the MBE and the essay portion of the Michigan bar exam.



One of the most intimidating things about the bar exam is that there is so much to learn and so much to do. We divide this daunting task into manageable chunks. We give you weekly to-do lists that tell you which outlines to review, exactly which essays to complete (we assign exact dates so that you cover the highly-tested issues for each subject), and which MBE questions to complete. We tell you what to do every week so that you can spend your time completing the assignments rather than wondering what you have to do. We try to keep the process as simple and easy as possible for you.

We grade approximately three essays each week and tell you whether you are on track and exactly what you need to do to improve! We also administer a final exam at the end of the course.  Our graders will give you detailed feedback on your essay answers so that you can see steady progress and increase your scores. We provide a huge advantage to students in this regard and many see their bar exam essay scores increase substantially after taking our course. We take the written portion of the exam very seriously because we know that it is a great way to boost your overall bar exam score and pass the bar exam!

Using J.D. Advising was the BEST decision I have ever made in the entirety of my academic career. I used J.D. Advising for both my MPRE prep and Bar Exam prep, and I am very proud to be able to say that I passed BOTH exams on my first try! For people who expect to pass both exams on their first try, that accomplishment might not seem that monumental or special, however, I did not do well in law school. I attribute my bar passage on my first attempt ALL to J.D. Advising!

In terms of the materials they offer, J.D. Advising’s material truly is second to none. J.D. Advising’s Bar Prep material is the gold standard in the land of Bar Prep. The material is straight to the point and only includes what you need to know in the most succinct and informative way. J.D. Advising is all about studying SMARTER and not HARDER, and they apply that mentality to all that they do…

Not only is J.D. Advising’s course material the best, but J.D. Advising’s instructors and tutors are the best too! Meagan taught my class and she exudes a knowledge of all things bar related. J.D. Advising offers a personalized experience that no commercial company can compare to. From in class sessions to literally hundreds of graded essays with valuable feedback to individual conferences, there is no better Bar Prep than J.D. Advising.
