The Bar Exam

The bar exam. These three little words probably didn't mean as much to you before you started law school, but now they're at the center of your universe (or close to it). There's nothing quite comparable to the two months you'll spend studying for the bar exam. You'll eat, you'll sleep, and you'll study. But you'll also be learning tremendous amounts of information and, on looking back, you'll be proud of yourself for your hard work. With that being said, the goal isn't just to take the bar exam, but to pass it and move forward with your career. The Bar Exam section of FindLaw for Law Students is here to help you succeed and covers information on the bar exam as well as its precursors, the MPRE and Baby Bar.
