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.

If the prospect of walking into an unfamiliar setting like a job fair, interview, or client meeting leaves you soaked in sweat, you’ve likely experienced social anxiety. Don’t let this perfectly normal physical manifestation of the fight-or-flight response keep you from accomplishing your goals. Instead, learn how to recognize anxiety as it develops and then put it to work.
