Bar Exam Preparation

The bar exam is certainly demanding and difficult, but gathering needed information about bar exams and bar admissions shouldn't be. Unlike many websites that discuss bar exams or bar admissions, this site is regularly updated and it is not commercial. It seeks only to provide information: the information law students want and need to know as they strategize and prepare for the next step after law school--becoming a licensed lawyer.

All information on this site is updated annually during the summer or as information is received. Data comes from reliable sources, including the National Conference of Bar Examiners and the bar exam administrators from the various states.
