Episode 84 Show Notes:

In this Episode, Jackson interviews Bill Harris, the President of Centerpointe Research Institute and creator of the Holosync audio meditation technology. Bill has been involved in personal development for nearly 40 years as a seeker, teacher, public speaker, author, musician, composer, therapist, workshop leader, and business owner. He has studied and practiced a wide range of traditional and modern transformational and therapeutic practices with a variety of teachers.

The idea of using precise sounds to alter a listener’s state of mind led Bill and his partner to create a powerful audio technology called Holosync, which they place inaudibly beneath peaceful music and environmental sounds. Celebration Bar Review incorporates the Holosync program as part of our special STAR package of services

You can also order Holosync as an addition to any of our bar review courses using this link: http://www.celebrationbarreview.com/course/holosync-audio-meditation/

In this interview, Bill discusses awareness and meditation as tools to improve performance in all aspects of life and for high stress events like studying for the bar exam.

Episode 75 Show Notes:

The relationship between law schools and bar prep has always been muddy at best. In today's Episode, Jackson looks at how law schools are managing their bar prep courses - often to the detriment of their students. 

In this Episode, we examine 4 current trends:

  • Increasing pressure from the ABA for Law School Transparency in reporting bar pass rate statistics
  • Current financial difficulties in the law school sector
  • The emergence of law school bar prep classes as part of the required curriculum
  • The links between employment statistics and commercial bar prep company relationships to law schools

The net result, Jackson concludes, is a system unfairly weighted against the law student and requiring an effective double payment for an inferior level of bar preparation.
