Course media


BARBRI's Extended US Bar Preperation course offers the support and flexibility you need to pass the California Bar Exam, the New York Bar Exam or any US state that administers the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE).

Study 100% online from home, work, or anywhere in the world with a flexible schedule that works for you. The 10-month course is perfect for any aspiring US lawyer who desires extra time, more flexibility, and exceptional 1:1 mentor support. It runs September through July preparing for the July bar exam, or April through February preparing for the February exam. (We also have a 6-month option, enquire with our sales team for more information.)

BARBRI's Extended US Bar Preperation course starts with the Foundations in US Law pre-course specially designed for non-US educated law grads. You'll then move onto preparing for the US Bar exam. Our exceptional online learning platform, ISAAC, is the engine that creates your BARBRI Personal Study Plan (PSP). It’s the difference between a "one size fits all” course and a "personalised specifically for you" experience. Everything ISAAC assigns is statistically correlated to passing your bar exam. And it automatically recalibrates as it learns from you.

With BARBRI Extended US Bar Prep, you will also receive individual guidance from a 1:1 mentor. Your US-qualified attorney mentor is your personal coach throughout your bar exam prep - and they also happen to be an expert on your course and your state's bar exam.

You'll get unlimited check-ins and coaching sessions, and online workshops that allow you to connect with other students. You'll also receive guidance through the Foreign Evaluation of Credentials and bar exam application process as needed.

Who is this course for?

This preparation course is perfect for qualified lawyers in a jurisdiction outside of the US, such as the UK, who are considering dual qualification through sitting a US state bar exam. BARBRI's Extended US Bar Prep course offers the support and flexibility you need to pass the California Bar Exam, the New York Bar Exam or any US state that administers the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE).


Every US state has its own bar eligibility criteria. Please see our website for details about different requirements. In short, if you're a qualified international lawyer, you have the best chance of being admitted to the US bar exam in New York and California.

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
