Meet the Team
We can’t wait to see your enthusiastic “I just passed the bar exam” selfie and your official LinkedIn update. In the meantime, you’ve got work to do to prepare – and we’re here to help you have the most successful bar prep experience possible.
Our Helix Directors are dedicated individuals who, just like you, went to law school and studied for a bar exam. (And they all passed, too!) So, whether you’re excited to get started, are struggling to figure out where to begin, have a question about IRAC-ing an essay, or need some reassurance to put the pause on your panic, your Helix Director is standing by to help. Join them in a weekly webinar, schedule a one-on-one coaching session, or just reach out. They’ll be there.
Remember to: Prepare your friends and family for what the bar exam entails. If you can, start studying early. And if you work full-time, be sure to take time off in the last few weeks."

Start each day with a promise to do your best. And at the end of the day, be confident you did just that. Studying in law school and for the bar exam is an emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical journey. Being kind to yourself will produce the biggest return in your professional and personal journey".
