Why do it
Passing a U.S. state bar exam and becoming an American attorney adds valuable credentials to your C.V. or resumeĢ and gives you the capability and expertise to work with international clients, deal with cross-border transactions, and understand the differences between U.S. and international law. Beyond choosing to practise law in the U.S. or abroad, you may be eligible for many positions in specialised areas such as consulting, international arbitration, international human rights, corporate in-house counsel for international businesses, and many more.

Graduates with a full-time, three or four year common law degree, which must be of substantial and durational equivalence to an American law degree, may be immediately eligible to apply to sit the New York bar examination. If you are a practising lawyer with a common law degree, you may be eligible to sit the Texas bar exam. Qualified lawyers who do not possess a common law degree can apply to take the California bar exam.

Key Benefits of the BARBRI International Programme
It gives students a choice of 6 months (10-15 hours per week) or 10 months (20-30 hours per week) to prepare to sit the Bar Exam, to perfect the exam techniques and learn the essential US law, and can be taken by working professionals as well as recently graduated law students.
  1. Course is taught by US law professors (experts in their fields, many of whom are Ivy League professors) by pre-recorded video which is available to students online whenever they need it, so the course is very flexible.
  2. We provide students with a ‘Foundations in US Law’ online module which is completed in the first month of the course (and is available immediately if the student wants to enrol early). It comprises online introductory lectures on the 7 core subjects tested in the US Bar exams, skills workshop lectures on how to tackle MCQs, essays and performance tests. This is approximately 90 hours of self-directed work. The first couple of weeks are skills lectures, and then it launches into the substantive law lectures.  The courses start with Foundations and then Bar Review lectures start a month afterwards.
  3. Students have access to the best materials, online learning tools (BARBRI Amp and Study-smart MBE, and Personal Study Planner (PSP) which tells them when they log in to the BARBRI enrolled student centre what exercises and homework they have to do and what study they need to do), learning support (facilitators and attorneys in US standing by to answer e-mailed substantive law questions) and administrative support (advice on registering to sit the Bar exams, on what they need to take to the Bar Exam);
  4. 2 mock exams provided for both courses. One MBE mock, and one full mock.
  5. We provide skills seminars for the classroom course and there are 2 additional essay writing skills seminars, a Q & A session dealing with MBE questions as well as an MPT writing skills seminar new to the course from September 2016. These will be led by facilitators in class, and the students will complete an exercise in class, and correct it with the facilitators.  Remember it is only available in the 6-month classroom course.
  6. Instead of having a facilitator as their point of contact, Home Study (online) students are assigned a BARBRI International mentor who will keep in contact with them every 2 weeks (or more frequently if required) via phone or email to check in and provide learning support and study advice.
