Vandal Bar Success

Vandal Bar Success is a free post-graduate program for graduates of the College of Law to aid in bar preparation studies through workshops, mock bar exams, individual coaching and more. The program is rooted in application by using a variety of practice problems—licensed directly from the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE). Vandal Bar Success provides a team of coaches (law faculty and licensed attorneys) to provide comments for improvement on bar essays and performance tests submitted to our program. The program also provides one-on-one coaching to help keep graduates on track and make the most of their study experience.

It's a complementary program to your commercial study course (e.g., Barbri, Kaplan, or Themis) and we work with you to make sure you are not overloading yourself either.

Take Control of Your Bar Prep Experience

The Vandal Bar Success program pulls back the curtain behind bar exam preparation and provides the best learning science techniques to help you study more efficiently. One of the most important factors to bar passage is confidence in yourself and your own learning. Thus, participating in a program that focuses on the best learning techniques for the vast amount of information in a condensed period of time is essential to maximizing success on the exam.

Coaching and Feedback

Vandal Bar Success provides a team of coaches who provide feedback on each writing assignment to help you improve your bar exam writing. These coaches are all licensed attorneys or law faculty who have been in your shoes and know what it takes to be successful on the bar exam. Coaches also provide opportunities for one-on-one live coaching to help guide you through the bar studying process, whether to help hone skills or reduce anxiety and stress by navigating the emotions and challenges of studying for the bar exam.

Community of Learning

As bar exam preparation has moved largely online, Vandal Bar Success is one of the few opportunities you have to connect with others who are going through the same process. Our sessions provide valuable social connection to build a sense of community with your colleagues and remind yourself you are not alone on this journey to pass the bar.
