Western New England University School of Law and BARBRI join forces to provide academic success support to law students

Feb. 4, 2019 – DALLAS, Bar review leader, BARBRI, and Western New England University School of Law (WNE Law) are joining forces to bolster academic success and foster stronger bar exam pass rates among the school’s law students.

Students at WNE Law will now have access to BARBRI’s award-winning online legal education content through books, lectures and online tools starting with their first year of law school and carrying through each year of study. Faculty and administration will be able to leverage BARBRI’s analytics to track student progress throughout their law school career and focus remediation and mentoring efforts as needed.  BARBRI ‘s suite of services complements WNE Law’s curriculum, and is designed to help the school meet its goals for academic success and eventual bar passage.

BARBRI’s Bar Review is the leading bar prep solution on the market today, and has helped more than 1.3 million professionals pass a U.S. bar exam. In fact, more law students have passed the bar exam using BARBRI than all other courses combined, and the company has the longest history of pass rate success, going back 80-plus bar exams.  The company complements its bar review expertise with a portfolio of legal education solutions for every stage of legal education. The partnership with BARBRI strengthens the learning opportunities for all students at WNE Law by enhancing and reinforcing academic support measures.

“The faculty academic success committee spent many months assessing proposals offered by several commercial bar preparation companies and other external providers, and ultimately we decided to work with BARBRI,” said Sudha Setty, dean of the School of Law.  “The company has demonstrated a commitment to supporting our students and our academic success goals, and has a sound understanding of the discrete academic needs of students as they go through each year of law school.”

“Success for law students in passing the bar and pursuing a legal career doesn’t start when they take the bar exam,” said BARBRI President Mike Sims. “It starts with their very first law class. Our partnership with Western New England Law is founded on this knowledge. We’ve worked closely with the school’s faculty and administration and feel confident we will meet the needs of law students and position them for success in school and in taking the bar.”

BARBRI and Delaware Law School partner to provide students the nation’s #1 bar review course

DALLAS — Leading legal education provider BARBRI today announced a strategic agreement with Delaware Law School to purchase the school’s state bar review course in its entirety.

Building on a unique partnership of many years, the agreement effectively integrates the school’s existing Delaware bar review materials and course with BARBRI’s multistate materials and best practice-oriented resources. BARBRI’s Delaware bar review is the only one endorsed by the school, and is also the only Delaware bar review offered at the school — the site of the Delaware bar exam.

Under the agreement, the comprehensive Delaware bar review program will continue to leverage the strategic advisory resources, local practitioners and professors long associated with the course and school. In addition, students will now benefit from BARBRI’s continuous improvement process, expertly curated and integrated state-specific and multistate materials, lectures, questions, and customer support. BARBRI continues to be the only bar review course offered in all 50 states.

“We consider the agreement a major win for our students as well as those around the country seeking admission to the Delaware Bar,” said Rod Smolla, Dean of the law school. “We’ve long enjoyed a successful relationship with BARBRI in serving our law students and look forward to this next phase.”

“We are extremely excited about this next chapter of our longstanding strategic relationship with Delaware Law School,” added BARBRI President Mike Sims. “This agreement will ensure the power and resources for which BARBRI is known are accessible and easily leveraged by those planning to sit for the Delaware bar exam.”

New BARBRI Attorney’s Course launches, creates unmatched opportunities for lawyers seeking additional state licensure

DALLAS — Leading legal education provider BARBRI today introduced its BARBRI Attorney’s Course, a shorter, streamlined and completely online bar review designed specifically for licensed attorneys seeking to pass an additional state bar.

This new attorney-focused offering was created to save time for practicing attorneys who already have taken the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE), by building on their existing knowledge, experience and skills. Rather than sitting again through hours of MBE skills instruction, substantive lectures and analysis lectures, students will take an initial diagnostic to assess what they remember. Based on that, each student is then guided to Personal Homework assignments designed to help him or her fill in any gaps. The goal is to quickly move students to the practice questions that will prepare them for the actual exam. The pace slows down for state-specific subjects, where they may encounter unfamiliar content or rules that are different from the bar exam they have already passed.

The course actually bypasses many of the basic bar exam test-taking skills critical to first-time exam takers, and moves the participant quickly to the most highly tested areas of the overall exam and within each subject. By building on a practicing lawyer’s knowledge and skills, the BARBRI Attorney’s Course — relevant for states in which the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) is administered and in California — provides a faster path to an additional license.

“As any attorney knows, preparing for the bar is practically a fulltime job,” said Mike Sims, president, BARBRI. “Experienced, practicing attorneys no longer have the luxury of that time, and so the prospect of sitting for an additional bar doesn’t seem viable. This course is designed to accommodate the time constraints attorneys face, while giving them the thorough review they need to pass the California or UBE, and ultimately expand their practice and career opportunities.”

New Lawyers Believe They are Ready for the Job; Practicing Attorneys Disagree According to First-Ever State of the Legal Field Study

Among 3L law students, 71 percent believe they “possess sufficient practice skills.” In contrast, only 23 percent of practicing attorneys who work with recent law school graduates and 45 percent of law school faculty members think new attorneys are ready to do their jobs.

That’s according to a recent study from BARBRI, the company that has helped more than 1 million U.S. lawyers pass the bar over the past 48 years. In its first-annual “State of the Legal Field Survey” of law students, law school faculty and practicing attorneys, BARBRI delved into such debated subjects as whether or not new attorneys are actually prepared to practice law.

BARBRI’s survey found that law students assess their practice readiness more positively than do law school faculty and attorneys who work with recent law school graduates. In fact, more than three-quarters, or 76 percent, of 3L law students believe that they are prepared to practice law “right now.” In comparison, 56 percent of practicing attorneys who work with recent law school graduates believe that, in general, soon-to-be law school graduates are prepared to practice law.

“BARBRI is helping to bring key industry matters like practice-readiness into sharper focus with our new annual survey,” said attorney and BARBRI President Mike Sims. “Each year, we will identify things that are working as well as opportunities for improvement.”After pioneering bar exam preparation nearly 50 years ago, BARBRI soon became recognized as the gold standard by law students. Since then, BARBRI has evolved into a further-reaching education firm. Today BARBRI is more than the de facto bar review choice among students; the legal education company now supports every stage of the legal life cycle – from pre-law student to practicing attorney.

State of the Legal Field

Both law school enrollment and the legal job market have steadily declined since the 2008 recession, sparking questions and controversy about law schools’ effectiveness and new attorneys’ job prospects. BARBRI commissioned the first-ever State of the Legal Field study to establish related benchmarks and plans to repeat the survey annually to track trends and better understand industry challenges.

“The State of the Legal Field Survey underscores BARBRI’s commitment to the industry and to shaping the evolving legal landscape,” said Stephen Fredette, BARBRI CEO. “Our company’s goal is to help each law student – whether just beginning law school, in the midst of classes, preparing for the bar or gaining additional skills or certifications – realize his or her individual dream. BARBRI has played a critical role in legal education for almost a half century, and we take that responsibility seriously.”

Other key findings from the BARBRI State of the Legal Field Survey include:

Job Market Outlook

Most law students who participated in BARBRI’s State of the Legal Field Survey are optimistic about finding positions after passing the bar, even though attorneys expect a somewhat stagnant job market.

Attorneys at companies that hire recent law school graduates report a median starting salary of $50,000 per year, while the median starting salary expected among law students is $70,000 per year.

Most attorneys – 81 percent – expect their law firms to stay the same size or decrease in size over the next three years.

Almost half of law students (46 percent) expect to have a job in the law field immediately upon graduation, and 83 percent expect to have a job within six months.

Law Student Debt

According to the BARBRI report, most law students will have significant debt at graduation but generally expect to get good value out of their legal education. And, most practicing attorneys say they have earned a high return on their investments in their juris doctor degrees (J.D.s).

When they graduate, 83 percent of current law students expect to have unpaid education loans. More than half of the students surveyed (57 percent) will owe more than $100,000.

The median time current students expect it will take them to pay off their education loans is 10 years. But 50 percent of law students anticipate they will either still be paying off loans in 10 years or that they will “never be able to repay them.”

In contrast, many practicing attorneys and faculty used means other than education loans to pay for law school (40 percent and 32 percent respectively).

The majority of law students – 82 percent – expect to get good value out of the money they’re spending on their legal education. An almost equal number of practicing attorneys agree, with 78 percent saying their incomes since graduation have justified the cost of their J.D.s. The overwhelming majority of law school faculty members – 96 percent – concur.

Survey Methodology

BARBRI commissioned an independent research firm specializing in the legal industry to survey more than 1,500 law school students, law school faculty members and practicing attorneys for the BARBRI State of the Legal Field study. Each group completed online quantitative surveys in late 2014. The audiences surveyed comprised students currently enrolled in law school; faculty members who hold J.D.s and work at law schools; and licensed attorneys practicing law in the United States. For complete State of the Legal Field survey details, go to the White Papers section of the newsroom.
