I am a licensed attorney who attended law school at the Sorbonne University, Paris, and practiced in Belgium before moving to North Carolina, where I have been practicing since 2003. I am also licensed to practice in the United Kingdom. I have experience in the French, Belgian, and U.S. legal systems, and would be happy to tutor law students, Bar Exam candidates, or professionals seeking to gain a basic working knowledge or more advanced knowledge of legal concepts, legal systems, and specialized legal language.
With a B.A. in French and a diploma in French Phonetics from University College, London, and a certification in teaching English as a Second Language, I lived and taught English as a Second Language in France for 15 years in the public school system, the University system, and professional training schools for judges and lawyers.
I have experience teaching at all levels and to all age groups, from pre-school children to post-graduate level, including business people seeking to acquire a working knowledge of English as a Second Language or French.
As a British native, I speak English with a standard English accent. I am completely bilingual (English/French), and equally at ease teaching French or English.
Great tutor that knows the exam inside and out! Ditch the commercial courses for Judy!
The first half of my bar prep journey was extremely stressful. On top of studying during a global pandemic, my commercial bar prep course gave me no guidance on what to focus on and failed to provide me with a productive schedule. It was a waste of time of watching video after video that would always leave me asking the same question after watching, "What did I learn?" A little over 2 months before the exam, I decided it was a time for a change. That's when I found Judy. Right away Judy provided a short term and long term schedule of topics and kept me accountable on a daily basis. Over time we covered every topic and every piece of testable material. However, Judy does not bog down her students with the unnecessary details that a commercial bar prep course does, she hammers home the major aspects of each subject until you know it cold. This allows for truly productive studying and for you to attain a passing score by studying what is actually on the exam. Judy tailors the preparation for each part of the exam. For the MBE you will do real past exam questions on a daily basis until you complete upwards of 1000 before exam day. For the MEE, Judy's years of bar prep tutoring and knowledge of past exams have given her a "sixth sense" of what topics are going to be covered and when. She was right on the money for the topics covered. On exam day, the essays unfolded just as she predicted. For the MPT Judy has you do practice MPTs on a periodic basis and boils it down to a simple formula that saves you so much time and energy. while scoring all the points you need to pass. Do yourself a favor and ditch the overwhelming commercial bar prep courses with their fire hose approach and contact Judy. Reflecting back on the experience, I can truly say that I passed the bar exam on the first time in the most efficient manner because of Judy. She is knowledgeable, hard working, organized, and genuinely cares about her students and their success on the bar exam and beyond.Nick, 59 lessons with Judy
Judy is a phenomenal teacher and a supportive mentor. She breaks down the most complex concepts into simple bite-sized chunks that are perfect for the time constrains of the UBE bar exam. I am very motivated to study and progress through my bar studies knowing I am being guided by a very experienced teacher.Njomza , 63 lessons with Judy
Helped me hack the law school personal statement
When writing my law school personal statement, I was stuck at a standstill. I could not figure out how to connect all of my stories with a central theme, but Judy helped me tie everything together by prompting me with the right questions and by showing me a different perspective.Krystjana, 2 lessons with Judy
Amazing tips & accountability

Would recommend her ten times over!!
I loved working with Judy! I've taken the BAR before and was able to pass it with her instruction. She was patient and kind and helped me grasp the material more fully. Would recommend her ten times over!!Celeste, 20 lessons with Judy
I was completely engaged and felt motivated after the session was over. She went over Torts and explained a method of how to lean the subjects. I can't wait for the upcoming sessions.Richard, 33 lessons with Judy
Great Bar Exam Tutor
Judy primarily tutored me for the MBE. She communicates very well and she is great at helping to break down questions, explain them, and point out common ways the exam tries to make you stumble. She also tracks exam news and trends which is a tremendous asset. I would highly recommend her to anyone. I wanted to update my review having received my scores from the October 2020 examination. I improved upon my previous score by 50 points, largely thanks to Judy's tutoring. Here is a list of what Judy has to offer: 1. The ability to hone in on areas that need improvement. 2. Key insights into exam trends and recurring patterns. 3. Analysis of questions and why one answer is superior, and how some answers are plants to trip you up. 4. Tips on how to manage your time on exam day. 5. How to get into the right mental state leading up to and through the exam. 6. Insights to commonly tested rules and scenarios. My experience was incredibly positive. I needed the little bit of structure to my study schedule that our lessons provided, and Judy's knowledge was invaluable. I went from just under a passing grade to a score of 318 in just 9 sessions over the course of 20 days! Working with Judy was honestly the smartest decision I made for my Bar prep.George, 8 lessons with Judy
Judy helped me prepare for the October 2020 Bar Exam. She was by far one of the best teachers that I have ever had! We went through every subject on the bar exam, did multiple choice questions and dissected a number of past essays. I highly recommend her to anyone preparing for the bar! Because the October exam was remote, I had more limitations on what I could and could not do during the actual exam. Judy made sure that we practiced everything exactly how I would experience it on the exam and that greatly contributed to how well I did on the actual exam. I not only passed the NJ Bar Exam, but because of Judy I scored well above what I needed to pass. If you want to pass the bar exam, Judy is THE person to go to.Justine, 75 lessons with Judy
Judy is an excellent tutor! She provides much more information than you expect to get out of the class. Judy also makes sure that you understand all the little details and essential elements of each topic you discuss. She goes above and beyond to discuss legal issues in-depth, resulting in you being way more prepared for the bar exam and feeling more confident. I recommend Judy for everyone who studies for the bar exam. I passed the DC Bar Exam with the score transferrable to any reciprocal jurisdiction! Judy helped me a lot when I was preparing for the Bar Exam. The next time I am studying for the Bar Exam, I will definitely study with Judy again!Daria, 2 lessons with Judy
