About Elaine

Need help preparing for the bar exam?

I have real-life experience in figuring out what it takes to conquer these tests. After receiving my LLB (common law) and BCL (civil law) degrees from McGill University in Montreal, I passed the Quebec Bar at the first try. Having two months off before starting my job, I headed down to Massachusetts and at the first attempt passed that bar too, even though this was my first exposure to American law. A couple of years later, I ended up in California, and so, once again, hit the books, and passed first time out. Success requires knowledge of the law AND test taking skills. I can help you acquire both.

As I am retired from the practice of law, except for a couple of pro bono cases, I have flexibility with respect to time. Tutoring sessions can occur either at your place or mine, or possibly the Santa Clara Law Library if a room is available.

If you are hitting a brick wall, panicking, or are just unsure on how to approach bar prep, give me a call.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Bar Exam

I studied law in Belgium and in the UK, and earned two law degrees from McGill University; an LLB (common law) degree and a BCL (civil law) degree.

I have passed three bars: Quebec, Massachusetts, and California. I am currently an active member of the California bar.

I have practiced law for 33 years in various subject areas including contract law, labor law, product liability law, bankruptcy law, civil litigation, and real estate law.
