Early Access to Full Course
“Early Access” can mean a lot of different things. For many bar prep courses, it means access to only some of their study materials. With Themis + UWorld, the meaning is clear—full access to our entire course 14 weeks before the February exam and 20 weeks before the July exam.
High Quality MBE Questions with NCBE®-Licensed Questions
Know exactly what to expect on exam day. Themis + UWorld provides access to 4,000+ MBE questions that are routinely updated by our in-house legal team to meet or exceed exam-level difficulty and imitate the exam’s current format.

Enhanced Visual Learning
Studies on information retention found that only 10-20% of written or spoken information is retained after three days. In contrast, 65% of visual information is retained within the same time frame. That’s why we go to great lengths to develop professional images, charts, graphs, and diagrams that simplify the complexity of legal concepts.
Customizable MBE Practice Tests
Not understanding a concept? Hone your weaknesses with customized practice tests focused on a subject, topic, custom tag, or past questions you’ve gotten incorrect. Questions are pulled from our 2,000+ question MBE QBank. Once you get enough practice under your belt, take one of our five MBE practice exams, including two 200-question exams that simulate recent MBEs.
In-Depth Answer Explanations
It’s not enough to run through questions without understanding the broader legal concepts being tested. Unlike other bar prep courses, our in-depth answer explanations help you understand the why behind each answer choice and get you thinking like a legal pro before you’ve even passed the bar.
Evidence Based Learning Tools (Digital Flashcards and Notebook)
Our spaced-repetition digital flashcards provide exactly what you need to study, when you need to study it. Just rate your understanding and let the algorithm take care of the rest. Seamlessly transfer source content from our QBank to either side of the flashcard, create a custom deck with custom tags, and study from anywhere.
User Testimonials About Themis + UWorld Bar Review
I love the ability to customize multiple-choice quizzes by topic and number of problems. Themis is the best. Everyone taking other bar prep companies were envious of the courses, content, and guidance.I passed everything! Additionally, you cannot go wrong when a company actually publishes their results! 10/10 would recommend."
I am ecstatic that I chose Themis. The instant feedback is wonderful, not to mention the explanation that makes topics I struggle with in law school make sense so easily. I received a UWorld MBE Qbank subscription by purchasing the Themis Bar prep course early and I am so happy! The MBE section of the Bar Exam feels much more manageable now!"
I found out I passed this morning, and I am thrilled to share that Themis was the secret to getting here. I appreciated the disclosure of bar passage rates when I was selecting my bar prep package, but it really was the program itself that was the perfect fit for me. Individualized attention if I wanted or needed it, REAL MBE questions, and coverage of everything I needed to get the job done."
