Washington Bar Review - Writing Program

The Washington UBE Bar now consists of a two day exam including six 30-minute essays and two 90-minute performance tasks.  These essays are unlike any essay exam that you’ve seen in law school and require that you learn new writing techniques. We will teach you how to approach the unique needs of the UBE exam and the secrets top scorers use to ensure that their writing is clear and concise. There is no extra charge for the writing program with Rigos.

In the writing program, we critique your essay answers for issue spotting, organization, analysis, and writing style. The objective is to make it as easy as possible for the grader to recognize your knowledge and award points for your discussion of controlling issues and black letter law.

We actually grade over 14 full substantive and performance task questions during class. Dozens more are reviewed in the course. We include three simulated exams. Among our faculty are former Washington State Bar examiners and the best of our former students who have written and graded thousands of actual examination answers. Practice makes perfect and Rigos makes practice easy.

Our grading is done electronically so the feedback is very quick. No more snail mail or waiting for 2 weeks at a class site. We provide both a grading guide and model answer. After receiving and returning 5 questions, you can meet with our grader-mentors to review your progress.

Besides electronic transmission, our writing programs differs from others in that it is integrated into the day-to-day classes. Integrating the essay program into the day-to-day class produces more useful feedback and more reinforcement of the substantive topic just covered in class. The result of the extra value is that almost all of our students complete all the essays. This Rigos integrated advantage is one of the reasons our pass-rate is higher than any of the competitions' courses.
