Welcome to WhatsTheIssue®
WhatsTheIssue® is a Bar preparation program that includes lessons and instructional videos on Torts, Contracts, Criminal Law & Procedure, Property, Constitutional Law, Evidence, and Federal Civil Procedure.
The basis of the name, WhatsTheIssue? is from the overwhelming problem most students have in identifying the ONE issue that is being tested in each question on the Bar. Rather than just having hundreds of “fancy words” and latin phrases in your head, I teach you HOW to identify the single rule or issue that is presented and HOW to locate the single corresponding answer. If you know WHAT the issue is, you will know WHY you are picking the answer you choose—rather than thinking what the answer MIGHT BE! In fact, one of my mantras for the Bar is:
The less you think, the better you will do.
After reviewing the following pages, you will see that I have a practical, down to earth, and personal approach to the Bar exam. Whether you are a first time taker or repeater, you can prepare yourself for success—and without being bored, exhausted or insecure.
I teach fundamentals of law, and easy to apply techniques for both the MBE and Essay portions of the test, techniques designed to teach you HOW to pass the test, not just learn more information.
While I am located in Florida, and most of my students are taking the Florida Bar, I have successfully worked with students from states including New York, Connecticut, New Jersey, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Texas.
I meet with students in my home office, and I speak with many out-of-area students by phone. If you’re interested in understanding the core ISSUES at the core of your Bar exam, I will be happy to discuss scheduling and rates with you on an individual basis. If you have any questions or need additional information, please do not hesitate to e-mail or call me at your convenience. I look forward to speaking with you about how I can help you through the process with less stress and more confidence than any other Bar tutorial service available.
A few of my other mantras for the Exam:
They are not trying to trick you; they know you will trick yourself.
The longer the fact pattern, the easier the answer.
For this test…less is more.
You will never know everything; but what you do know, know COLD.
Whether or not these make sense to you now, they will soon! If you start practicing these and other principles, you will not simply hope to pass—you will truly believe in it!
