BARBRI brings you a blended classroom and home study programme to prepare for the New York or California state U.S. bar exam. The 6-month bar exam programme, held at our central London campus begins in September in preparation for the following February bar exam. The 10-month bar exam programme, held either at our London campus or at the Durham University campus, begins in September in preparation for the following July bar exam.

As a Classroom candidate, you will experience a combined online Home Study and Live Classroom catering exclusively to postgraduate international students.

We provide the opportunity to sit two live simulated examinations at key points during your studies to help train both your body and brain for this rigorous portion of the exam. Our data and experience has shown that just experiencing live, simulated exams can significantly impact your chances of passing a U.S bar exam.

Bar Exam Details & Eligibility

A U.S. qualification is more achievable than you might have first thought as New York and California operate a relatively open policy in permitting foreign law graduates or lawyers to sit their bar examinations and do not impose restrictions to admission on grounds of nationality or residence.

There are many factors to consider though and we encourage candidates to attend an Open Day, or speak with a BARBRI International team member prior to programme enrollment so that we can ensure that you understand the steps required to establish your eligibility, that you are available to study for and sit the bar examination.


Get a taste of real materials that you’ll use during BARBRI International Bar Prep to prepare to pass the New York or California Bar Exam.

I constantly received emails and phone calls asking me on my progress with the course materials and everyone was happy to give advise. Moreover, all queries were responded to promptly. The course material given by Barbri is sufficient for the exam and I did not need to look beyond the materials for my preparation.
