If you are not sure about what to request, please read the information below under "What accommodations will I need?" and complete the form as best you can. Once we have the information on your form, we will be in a much better position to discuss possible accommodations with you.
When should I apply?
Even simple requests, such as special seating or extra time on practice tests, may take time to arrange. To avoid any delay in getting accommodations, please make your request early, ideally 90 days before the course begins.
What accommodations will I need?
To help you determine what accommodations you will need, we recommend that you learn more about the format of the program and its materials.
The three main components of the BARBRI course are: lectures, substantive law outlines, and practice testing. You need to consider whether you will need accommodation for any of those components:
Lectures are generally 3-4 hours per day. During the lectures you will take notes and/or fill in blanks in a lecture handout.
The black letter law is provided in the long, detailed outline books and in the condensed Conviser Mini Review (in addition to the lectures). You will generally be given daily reading assignments.
Practice testing may consist of take home assignments and possibly some in-class assignments. Some of the assignments should be done under timed conditions.
Consider what accommodations you have had in law school to determine if any of those may be relevant to the bar review course.
The BARBRI course is different from law school courses. It is extremely condensed and requires you to blend the three components above to bring you to peak performance for your bar exam. The more you know about the BARBRI course the better you can determine what you will need.
