Fundamentals of the Bar Exam is a pre-bar review, skills-development course offered to graduating students in their final fall or spring semester. Through repeated exposure to bar examination materials, students learn the basic techniques for answering the multiple choice, essay, and performance test questions found on the bar examination. Students are required to work collaboratively in class and have regular homework assignments to complete.
To help our graduates prepare for the bar exam, Widener Law Commonwealth has partnered with PMBR to offer PMBR’s MBE Review course. The review course provides outstanding preparation for the multistate, multiple-choice portion of the bar exam. The course has seven days of core material, supplemented by books and an on-line question bank. The course may be taken live at the law school or online.
Interested students and alumni who would like to sign up or get more information about the 7-day PMBR program should contact Professor David Raeker-Jordan at the law school.
This page describes the most common pathways for Widener Law Commonwealth students to fulfill §520.18 of New York’s Rules for the Admission of Attorneys and Counselors at Law skills and competency requirement. This requirement is intended to help applicants “establish that they have acquired the skills and are familiar with the professional values necessary to competently practice law.”
