New part-time study option offers greater convenience, flexibility for international law graduates and lawyers
LONDON, July 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BARBRI, a leading legal education provider, has launched its new 10-month Home Study Programme, a convenient, comprehensive and flexible U.S. Bar exam preparation course tailored for non-U.S. trained law graduates and lawyers.
The BARBRI International Home Study programme, which has traditionally run for six months, now offers candidates the opportunity to study over 10 months. The longer course provides enhanced flexibility over a longer study schedule. While the six-month course requires 20-30 hours of study per week for success, the 10-month course requires no more than 10-15 hours of study per week. The efficiency and flexibility of the new option is a crucial benefit for working law graduates and lawyers wanting to qualify as a U.S. attorney.
"We've frequently heard from international candidates with full-time legal careers that they need more flexibility and time to devote to their U.S. bar review studies," says Sarah Hutchinson managing director, BARBRI International. "We understand that passing a U.S. bar exam greatly expands their career opportunities, and consequently worked to devise an option that accommodates their busy lives while still providing the in-depth review for which BARBRI International is known. The 10-month programme accomplishes that."
The six- and 10-month International Home Study Programmes include the same materials as the classroom series – exam-focused, online lectures from top American law school professors, and BARBRI's industry-leading Personal Study Plan, accessible online from anywhere in the world. The Home Study Programmes also offer simulated exams, a full set of textbooks and printed materials, advice on eligibility and access to a dedicated BARBRI International expert and support contact. Candidates can choose the home study option that works best with their lifestyle and schedule to prepare them to sit for the New York or California bar exam. The first 10-month and the next six-month Home Study Bar Preparation Programmes begin in September 2016.
