I knew I would take the New York Bar Exam because, in my desired field of practice, it was a go-to, especially for big law firms at which I was applying at the time.
Passing a U.S. Bar Exam gave me a unique opportunity to expand my legal career to an international level, to practice law in the United States and to handle complex cross-border legal matters.
Being qualified in another country, especially the United States, exponentially increases the scope of positive impact I can make in the world.
The New York Attorney-at-Law qualification comes with a certain prestige and international mobility. Not only do many employers hold the qualification in high regard, but many also have ties with New York, a prominent global financial hub.
BARBRI International not only helped me to become the first CILEx lawyer to be eligible to sit the California bar but I believe it will be instrumental in my being the first to pass it also.
To anyone with the goal of passing a U.S. bar exam and becoming U.S. qualified – go with BARBRI, make the time, do the work, apply the techniques and you’ll pass. Today, I am successfully dual-qualified as a New York attorney and Solicitor Advocate.
Every day, I am working with smart people who are deeply interested and engaged in their work. Having passed the New York Bar Exam and being qualified as a U.S. attorney is certainly helpful.
Having the U.S. Attorney qualification on my CV is a must-have. It really shows any future employer what I’m capable of achieving. It’s really advantageous!
I got my law degree 20 years ago, in a foreign country, in French. In a sense, BARBRI was my law school. Thanks BARBRI for helping me reach my goal of passing the New York Bar Exam. I felt that BARBRI was custom made for me.
I started bar exam preparation about 2 months after regular bar prep had begun. Hoping to gain lost time, I chose BARBRI as I knew it was the most established bar exam prep course. This was despite paying significantly more for the BARBRI International course compared to the BARBRI U.S. programme. The BARBRI International team helped me through the process of obtaining eligibility as a foreign lawyer to sit the bar exam – a huge hassle in itself! Barbri lectures, materials and preparation schedule were comprehensive and structured. Despite my late start and having to work full time, I passed with a comfortable 155 MBE scaled score. All thanks to BARBRI International.
I think the great thing about studying remotely with BARBRI is that even though I was not in Ireland, I did not miss out on any of the benefits that come with being close. 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. The practice exams towards the end were very useful as they gave me an idea of how a typical exam day would be like and prepared me both mentally and physically for the exam. The course material given by BARBRI is sufficient for the exam and I did not need to look beyond the materials for my preparation.
I took the BARBRI California bar course in order to enhance my C.V. and open opportunities for me in the global legal market. BARBRI International engaged with me and gave me great help in both signing up to the course and applying for the bar exams in California. I found the structure of the BARBRI bar course and the materials invaluable in my preparation for the bar exams and the bar ethics test. On the basis of the extensive materials provided (both online and in hard copy), the crucial bar simulation exercises, the dedication of the team, and the administrative course support, I would definitely recommend BARBRI International for UK-based students looking to take the California bar exam.
The BARBRI course materials provided a comprehensive understanding of the bar exam topics for me and the tips in tackling the bar exam were especially useful. I truly enjoyed lectures which were all very engaging despite the fact that I was watching the videos remotely and the subjects were, let’s be honest, rather dry. The BARBRI app was especially useful as I could practice the multiple choice questions whenever I had some spare time on the go – this is particularly appreciated when juggling the bar exam studies with full time employment. I found it easy to communicate with my BARBRI advisor in spite of the time difference and I’m happy to say that I passed the Texas Bar exam on my first attempt thanks to BARBRI.
BARBRI provided me with the framework and structure that I needed to pass the bar exam. The curriculum was very complete and detailed and the lectures were easy to follow. Studying for the Bar requires a lot of discipline and BARBRI is a great resource for those who are willing to pursue the challenge.
Law is my passion and the BARBRI lecturers are the best I have ever known. The way they deliver the lectures in a fun but still professional manner makes learning fun and worthwhile.
