  1. HOW TO ENTER. Students will automatically receive one (1) entry into the Drawing upon registering for an account at the Website to obtain a copy of the Sneak Peak and completing at least ten percent (10%) of the Sneak Peek. Both the registration and access to the Sneak Peek are free.

  • Limit one (1) entry per person.  Any one individual may only register for one account.

Other entry requirements.  Entries received from any person in excess of any stated limitations will be void.  Any attempt by any Student to obtain more than the stated number of entries by using multiple and/or different identities, forms, registrations, email addresses, logins, or any other methods will void that Student’s entries, and that Student may be disqualified at Sponsor’s discretion.  Multiple students are not permitted to share the same email address or registration account. In the event of a dispute as to any registration, the authorized account holder of the email address used to register will be deemed to be the registrant. The “authorized account holder” is the natural person assigned an email address by an Internet access provider, online service provider or other organization responsible for assigning email addresses for the domain associated with the address used to register for the Drawing. Potential Winners may be required to show proof of being the authorized account holder to the Sponsor or forfeit the Prize, as defined below. If you specify an invalid, non-working, or inactive email address when you register for an Activity or enter the Drawing, your entry will be disqualified, and you may be ineligible to win. You must complete all required information to be eligible to enter. Incomplete, corrupted, or untimely registrations are void and will be disqualified. Sponsor will not verify receipt of entries. Internet access, phone, and usage charges imposed by your online or phone service may apply.

One thousand (1,000) entries (each, a potential “Winner”) will be randomly drawn by Sponsor over the course of two (2) designated drawing dates (each, a “Drawing Date”) from among all eligible entries received during the applicable portion of the Drawing Entry Period.

a. The prize to be received by each Winner selected during either Drawing (“Prize”) will consist of Winner’s choice of free access to either: (a) one complete Helix Bar Review Multistate Bar Exam online preparation course (“Helix MBE”), usable in preparation for the July 2023 Bar Examination only (approximate retail value of $279 per course); or (b) one complete Helix Uniform Bar Exam online preparation course (“Helix UBE”), usable in preparation for the July 2023 Bar Examination only (approximate retail value of $1,199 per course).

i. The Prize is non-transferrable, may not be shared or sold, and may only be used by Winner. No assignment, transfer or substitution of the Prize, in whole or in part, is permitted by a Winner. Sponsor expressly reserves the right to terminate access to the Prize in the event Sponsor learns that any individual other than Winner is using or accessing the Prize, in whole or in part, in any capacity and for any reason. Access to the Prize is subject to Winner’s continuing acceptance of and agreement with Helix’s Privacy Policy and Terms of Use. Any use of the Prize beyond the limitations set forth in the Terms of Use will void the Prize immediately, and Sponsor will terminate access to the Prize without notice and at Sponsor’s sole discretion.

  1. WINNER NOTIFICATION. The potential Winners will be notified within one week after each Drawing Date by email or phone, and, except where legally prohibited, must execute and return an affidavit of eligibility (“Affidavit of Eligibility”) and any and all additional documentation required by Sponsor, in its sole discretion, by email within seven (7) calendar days of attempted notification. If a potential Winner cannot be contacted after the first attempt to contact the Winner, or if the Winner fails to sign and return the Affidavit of Eligibility or any other documentation that Sponsor may require within the required time period (if applicable), or in the event that a potential Winner is disqualified for any reason, Sponsor will award the Prize to an alternate Winner selected by a random drawing from among all remaining eligible entries for that Drawing.  A maximum of three (3) alternate drawings will be held, after which any remaining Prizes will remain un-awarded.  

Verification of Potential Winners:  ALL POTENTIAL WINNERS ARE SUBJECT TO VERIFICATION BY SPONSOR whose decisions are final AND BINDING IN ALL MATTERS RELATED TO THE DRAWING AND USE OF THE PRIZE.  AN ENTRANT IS NOT A WINNER OF ANY PRIZE UNLESS AND UNTIL ENTRANT’S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED AND ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE. WINNER MAY FORFEIT THE PRIZE THROUGH MISUSE OF THE PRIZE IN VIOLATION OF APPLICABLE TERMS OF USE, AT SPONSOR’S SOLE DISCRETION.  

A PRIZE “WINNER” IS A PERSON WHOSE ENTRY IS SELECTED DURING A DRAWING, WHOSE ENTRY WAS NOT SELECTED PREVIOUSLY IN THE SAME DRAWING OR A PREVIOUS DRAWING, AND WHO COMPLETES ALL DRAWING REQUIREMENTS, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO, COMPLETION OF THE REQUIRED PORTION OF THE “SNEAK PEEK” HELIX BAR EXAM COURSE AND ALL SPONSOR-REQUIRED FORMS.

ALL FEDERAL, STATE AND LOCAL TAXES, IF ANY, AND ALL COSTS OF USE OF OR ACCESS TO THE PRIZE ARE THE SOLE OBLIGATION OF WINNER. WINNER UNDRESTANDS AND AGREES THAT SPONSOR MAY ISSUE A FORM 1099-C FOR THE REASONABLE COST OF THE PRIZE, AS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW. Each Winner should consult appropriate tax advisers about any tax liability that may be associated with acceptance of the Prize.
