Northwestern California University



Fleming's began working with Northwestern law students over 20 years ago. In 2000, Fleming's began working directly with Northwestern CA University School of Law, providing legal education consultation services together with adjunct curriculum materials and courses for its students. 


Students enrolled at Northwestern CA University School of Law begin their first year learning the substantive law and legal writing skills. They are also introduced to legal exam writing, which includes how to analyze, organize, and write an effective law essay exam. The Fleming's Fundamentals of Law Legal Exam Writing Workshop is one tool that Northwestern uses in its curriculum for this purpose.

The Fleming's Survival Kit is the review course recommended by Northwestern to its students who are preparing to sit for the First Year Law Students Exam (FYLSE), known as the Baby Bar Exam. Fleming's offers this course to Northwestern students at a substantially discounted price.

Several Northwestern students who attended the Fleming's Baby Bar Review couse and passed the Baby Bar exam have had their Baby Bar exam answers published by the Committee of Bar Examiners as examples of what the Examiners expect in a passing answer, which demonstrates the effectiveness of the exam skills and techniques that Fleming's provides to Northwestern students preparing for the FYLSE.

Northwestern also provides its students with 24/7 online access to its online e-learning site where the Fleming's Exam Solution program is available to supplement their law school studies. The Fleming's Exam Solutions combine a comprehensive substantive law outline with a 4-5 hour substantive law lecture that explains the law and how issues arise in legal exam fact patterns.

Northwestern students have the opportunity to write and submit multiple legal exam answers to Fleming's for grading and feedback to supplement their participation in the Fleming's Exam Solution program. This consistent exam practice, followed with personal feedback, helps students significantly improve their test-taking skills because they are given detailed tips on how to apply the law to facts in order to improve their exam analysis and writing. Fleming's collaboration with Northwestern CA University School of Law and its students attests to the effectiveness of the Fleming's materials and exam writing course presentations.

Fleming's success rate with Northwestern law students who have attended our bar reviews has consistently exceeded the pass rates reported by the Committee of Bar Examiners. These same students have gone on to prominent careers in the practice of law.


To enhance Northwestern students' learning experience, Professor Fleming works directly with the Northwestern faculty, many of whom used the Fleming's bar review when they prepared for and passed the CA Bar Exam. These faculty members include Professors Mary Schofield, April M. Molin, and Aaron S. Tenzer. In addition, Professor Jared E. Gross, who received a perfect score on the LSAT, has worked with Fleming's for over 18 years and now provides MBE instruction to Northwestern students.

Professor Fleming provides weekly chat room instruction to Northwestern's first year students in conjunction with Professor George Castagnola Jr.
