The College of Law is fully vested in your success on the July 2018 bar exam, and to further evidence that support we are launching “Campaign #RaiseTheBar”, which includes FREE bar preparation resources for FAMU alums. As well, throughout this academic year we have been actively engaged in providing additional resources and strategic support through Project PASS to current students. Campaign #RaiseTheBar is extremely important as it represents our unfaltering belief that you as an alum and your success on the bar exam is integral to the continued growth of the College of Law and the many communities that you serve. 

The College of Law received approval from the University to contract with AdaptiBar and KaplanPMBR, two leading commercial bar exam preparation companies to provide alumni supplemental services for the July 2018 bar exam. These services are designed to act as “wrap-around support”, however, they do not replace the critical need for all graduates to have access to a full commercial bar review course. The services provided by AdaptiBar and KaplanPMBR are limited and will be available on a first come first serve basis. Below is a detailed summary of the services that will be provided through Campaign #RaiseTheBar.

AdaptiBar Programming & Services

Through the AdaptiBar Online MBE Simulator and Prep program, you will have access to 1,955 Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) questions, which includes 1,740 previously tested MBE questions from the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE). You will also have access to AdaptiBar’s individual progress tracking system, which will assist you in identifying your strengths and weaknesses while preparing for the bar exam. AdaptiBar is completely online, so you will be able to access the practice questions throughout bar preparation and at your convenience, even prior to graduation.  

KaplanPMBR Programming & Services

You will also have access to the KaplanPMBR Combo Course. The Combo Course, also known as the “book ends” of bar review, includes a 7-day course and 3-day course. To help you build a foundation and effectively transition into “bar study mode” the KaplanPMBR 7-day course is available on-demand and should be completed before the first day of your general bar review course. Each day of the 7-day course, you will begin by completing a 50 question quiz for a particular MBE subject, followed by watching on-demand the substantive question-based review lecture of the 50 question quiz. In mid-May (after completion of the 7-day course), you will transition into your general commercial bar review course. Then, approximately two-weeks before the bar exam, Kaplan will host the KaplanPMBR 3-day course LIVE at the College of Law.  Day one of the 3-day course features a full-day simulated MBE administered under test-like conditions. The remaining two days of the course will consist of a LIVE substantive question-based review. In a nutshell, the 3-day course is designed to highlight the finer points of the relevant law typically not covered in your general bar review lectures and covers the most up-to-date MBE trends. As a part of the Combo course, you will also receive the KaplanPMBR online question bank of approximately 2,400 MBE questions and the KaplanPMBR Redbook containing an additional 650 practice questions. This is in addition to the over 550 questions you will complete during the actual 7-day and 3-day Combo Course. All out-of-state bar takers physically studying for the bar exam in another state are also encouraged to fully participate in the KaplanPMBR Combo Course. We have made special arrangements for you to have access to the course on-demand.
