Charles A. Borek

Attorney At Law

Teaching for the bar exam since 2004.

“The joy of teaching for Shemer Bar Review comes from the fact that the program is student focused. Rather than giving take-it-or-leave-it, canned presentations, the Shemer faculty is dedicated to meeting the needs of the students in a flexible and responsive manner.”

Professor Borek has made live presentations to professional groups in over 40 states and has conducted several national broadcasts for the American Law Institute.
