Whether you’re a qualified lawyer in a jurisdiction outside of the U.S, an LL.M. student at U.S. law school or just need more time to study due to other commitments, the Extended U.S. Bar Preparation course offers the support and flexibility you need.

Extended U.S. Bar Preparation courses for the New York / UBE and California are offered over a 6- or 10-month duration leading into the February and July exams scheduled each year.

The 100% online home study course is recommended for working professionals who need a part-time course with greater flexibility and for candidates who cannot attend a blended classroom location due to location or schedule conflicts.

The 6-month course runs from February through July with the bar examination in July or from September to February with the bar examination in February.

The 10-month course runs from September through to July with the bar examination in July or from April to February with the bar exam in February.

He or she will schedule personal, bi-weekly check-ins or meetings to see how you are progressing with your studies as well as conduct livestream workshops, provide tips, and help you with any problem areas including customizing your course if necessary.

BARBRI Extended U.S. Bar Preparation students also receive guidance through the Foreign Evaluation of Credentials and bar exam application process as needed.

Lectures, outlines, practice questions, workshops, simulations and frequent progress assessments build over time to create a highly effective bar preparation structure. Ultimately, you spend your study time where it will yield the best results helping you study smarter, not harder.

BARBRI Guarantee

For extra reassurance, we offer the BARBRI Guarantee. The BARBRI Guarantee allows a student enrolled in a BARBRI Extended U.S. Bar Preparation course to repeat his/her course once, for the same state, within 12 months of receiving results free of charge.

Over 1.3 million now licensed attorneys worldwide have passed a U.S. state bar exam with BARBRI over 50+ years. In fact, 76% of non-U.S. educated students who completed 80%+ Extended U.S. Bar Prep course work passed a U.S. bar exam. You can be next.


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 speak with a BARBRI team member prior to 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.

I constantly received emails and phone calls asking me on my progress with the course materials and everyone was happy to give advice. Moreover, all queries were responded to promptly.
