Early Bar Prep
Maximizing Opportunities for Student Success

Give your graduating classes a head start on bar exam preparation. We've created 2-, 3-, and 4-credit EBP courses that will provide a solid foundation for your law students. Each course includes online outlines, substantive law lectures, assessments, practice questions, and more.

Customized 3L Early Bar Preparation Course

There is no one-size fits all curriculum. We’ll customize your EBP course to meet your school’s specific-goals and create a customized online portal containing subjects and topics covered in the course. The EBP program is typically organized in one of two ways:

Subject Focused

One-semester focusing on three to four MBE® subjects in their entirety (this can be extended over two semesters to cover all seven MBE subjects).

Subtopic Focused

One semester focusing on highly tested subtopics within all seven MBE subjects.

A Research-Backed Educational Framework

The EBP course is organized around four pedagogical methods, proven to increase student performance, understanding, and recall.


Self-evaluate their thought processes as they analyze legal issues, apply the law and scrutinize potential outcomes.

Self-Regulated Learning

Actively plan, monitor, and assess their learning activities to meet their learning objectives.


Recall information from memory through testing and practice quizzes, which improves long-term retention.

Cognitive Schema Theory

Form schemas about various areas of law which they can use to quickly categorize and interpret new cases and concepts.

Preparing Your Students for the Bar Exam

From the opening assessment to the final day of the course, we provide the structure, tools, support, and
resources you need to improve student outcomes.

Baseline Exam

The course begins with a baseline exam consisting of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) covering the topics selected by your law school. These results can be compared against those of later assessment exams to measure student progress and proficiency.

Subject Organization

Subject Organization

Subtopics within each MBE subject are organized as stand-alone modules to help students develop proper schema. Every module contains the following components:

  • 1 online outline
  • Substantive law lectures
  • Assessment questions
  • 15 practice multiple-choice questions
  • 1 multistate essay (optional)

Flipped Classroom Model

Students will cover one module per week using their customized online accounts. Outside of class, they will complete the assigned substantive law review and practice questions as a prerequisite to classroom discussion, and test themselves with MBE and essay questions.

Class Schedule

Class Schedule

Classes begin with the teacher addressing the substantive law principles that students studied for homework, then faculty will provide a thorough review on the best way to approach practice questions from the applicable topic, and finally students will be given an essay self-evaluation sheet to self-assess areas of weaknesses so they can develop them into strengths.

Exam-Level Assessment

Exams are customized to the specific needs of the law school and often include individual subject assessment exams, midterm(s), and a final exam, all of which consists of multiple-choice questions and/or essays. All questions are written by in-house legal experts to meet or exceed exam-level difficulty and reflect the format and style of recent MBEs.
