Our Attorney-Coaches


Colonel Hugh Reed

National Director and Founder of Reed Law Group



"You cannot hope to accomplish on the bar exam what you haven't practiced in your bar review. Interactive learning, continuous performance execution, and constant coaching by experts who regularly take bar exams are invaluable to your success -- listening to long lectures by those who do not take bar exams regularly, taking copious notes, and reading long outlines are not."

   - Hugh Reed                                 

     Colonel Hugh Reed (and the attorney-coaches of Reed Bar Review) brings a wealth of experience to help students succeed on their law examinations. Reed is considered a national expert on examination testing techniques. He takes bar exams regularly and studies the constant changes on bar examinations. He has personally taken and passed over 30 Multistate Bar Exams (MBEs)...and counting.

     With over thirty years of experience in preparing students for their law school and bar examinations, Reed has developed helpful mnemonics, checklists, and disciplined approaches to help law students and bar candidates succeed on law examinations. His performance-based approach focuses on remembering key principles of law under the pressure of timed examination formats. Reed, a graduate of the George Mason University School of Law, is the former Director of Multistate Testing, Editor-in-Chief, and Director of various states' bar reviews for the largest traditional bar review in the country; he also has written and edited numerous books and outlines including Gilbert Law Summaries and Legalines. Professor Reed is admitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Court of Military Appeals, U.S. Tax Court, and numerous states by taking bar exams regularly for his multi-jurisdictional law practice representing military personnel worldwide. The MBE and the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) change constantly-- up to 60 of the 200 questions on the MBE are repeat questions from past exams as are approximately 15 of the 50 graded questions on the MPRE, for statistical equating purposes—Reed teaches you how to beat the test. Albeit we are bound legally and ethically not to republish secure questions, Reed Bar Review constantly monitors changes on the bar exam and is licensed by the National Conference of Bar Examiners to republish all released questions. We’re committed to train you on the most often tested concepts in order for you to pass your exam!

     Professor Reed, a retired Army Colonel, is also a former Army Airborne Ranger with combat experience and the Commander of two Army Aviation Brigades, including the U.S. Army's Aviation Training Brigade. He uses his experience as an Army Ranger and teaching pilots to define his teaching approach for law exams. By using the principle "practice makes perfect," and flawless performance under anxiety conditions, Reed teaches preparation for law examinations like Army Rangers rehearse combat missions and pilots learn emergency flight procedures. Reed programs simulate anxiety-prone conditions, like law examinations, by using interactive reviews that emphasize memorization and performance techniques utilizing proprietary checklists, mnemonics/acrostics, and other test preparation devices. These simulated pressure-filled testing conditions and continuous expert feedback have made the difference between success and failure for countless students, many of whom are now successful attorneys, judges, and members of Congress.
