1) When does the BARBRI Extended U.S. Bar Prep course start? How long is it? How much time should I plan to study?

Your full Extended U.S. Bar Prep Personal Study Plan (PSP) will be available on the course start date. This date varies depending on the course duration you select and whether you are preparing for the February or July bar exam. The course can last either 6 or 10 months.

You have the flexibility to choose the specific days and times that work best for your schedule, ensuring the utmost personalization to meet your unique learning needs and lifestyle.

Upon enrolling and paying all course fees, you will gain access to the Foundations in U.S. Law pre-course, which provides essential building blocks in U.S. law. This is particularly beneficial for students who have not completed their legal education in the U.S.

2) Is the course schedule flexible?

The Extended U.S. Bar Prep course is designed to be extremely flexible, allowing you to learn when and where you study best over the 6- or 10-month duration.

Your PSP is driven by our AI-powered adaptive learning platform. The intuitive technology knows which topics are most likely to be tested on the bar exam and adjusts your PSP based on your progress. If you spend less time studying one day, your assignments will be recalibrated to ensure you are always focused on the most impactful assignments to get you the most points on your bar exam.

3) Can I do my course entirely online?

Yes, you can complete 100% of your Extended U.S. Bar Prep course online from anywhere in the world, provided you have a strong, stable internet connection.
