Bar Exam Support & Resources

Preparing to take the bar exam requires time, focus, and support! Most of the hard work must be done by the person preparing to take the exam but the Law School faculty and staff are here to offer support and resources.

It is also important to have the support of family, friends, and colleagues. Being sure these people understand the time and commitment needed to successfully prepare for the exam is crucial.

During your time in law school, we encourage you to consider the bar exam when making class selections. We offer a for-credit course, Advanced Analysis in Pre-Bar Skills, which we recommend students take the semester prior to taking the bar exam. 

In addition, we offer one-on-one bar exam support and counseling for our students and graduates.  Assistant Dean J.B. Kim has significant experience advising students and alumni who are preparing to take the bar exam. Professor Sandy Patrick, who teaches the Advanced Analysis in Pre-Bar Skills course, is also available to offer advice and assistance.

Check out Boley Law Library’s webpage devoted to Bar Exam Study Resources.

For information specific to the state bar you plan to take and for the bar application, be sure to visit the Admissions section of that state’s bar association website. If you are considering taking the bar exam prior to graduation, please review Lewis & Clark Law School’s Early Oregon Bar Taker Policy.

If you have questions, please contact Libby Davis, Associate Dean of Student Affairs.
