One of the nicest benefits in working with bar applicants over the many years is to see them “close the circle” in putting the exam behind them and for their families – and then moving on to life’s next great challenge.

The pursuit of this great goal is often a “team sport” – with sacrifice from husbands and wives, significant others and their children, too. Navigating the difficulties presented by law school curriculums, 9-to-5 employment, balancing family priorities and, of course, persisting in the individual belief that everything will work out – are just some of the qualities at the heart of finally making it across the finish line.

More Success For Ali

Cal Bar is pleased to announce that Ali Hinsche continued her remarkable run of success in having just passed the Florida bar exam.

This was her 4th (count 'em: 1, 2, 3, 4) successful bar - on her 1st attempt-following California, New York and Illinois.

While Ali worked with Cal Bar for each state, she also owes her success to persistence, hard work, and in learning how to adapt and apply the Cal Bar test-taking systems to the requirements of each bar exam.
