Law School Launches US Bar Admission Course – FE News

The Law School will launch a US Bar Admission Course, to prepare graduates and non-US attorneys to take the New York or California bar exam.

The course, which will feature tailored workshops to help students bridge the gap between their legal knowledge and US law, was developed in partnership with Themis, a leading provider of bar exam preparation courses.

Specifically designed for law graduates and non-US attorneys, the flexible course is offered part-time and online, allowing students to choose when to study content on an adaptive study schedule, allowing them to complete the course within six to nine months. .

During this time, students will learn about civil procedure, constitutional law, contracts, criminal law and procedure, evidence, real estate, torts, and more. Students will be assigned a licensed legal advisor who will mentor them throughout the program.

The course will not only enable students to qualify as attorneys in New York or California, but also enhance employability opportunities and distinguish themselves as outstanding candidates in the marketplace.

Students will have the choice of taking the California or New York bar exam, depending on their eligibility. To take the California bar exam, students must be a qualified attorney from any common law or civil law country. For the New York Bar Examination, students must have completed an accredited full-time 3-year on-campus LLB from a common law country, with at least 166 common law credits.

The University of Law will also be the only UK provider of the course that offers past papers for the US Bar exams.

Richard Douglas, COO at Themis Bar Review, mentioned:

“At Themis, we are committed to providing innovative, responsive, and comprehensive products to anyone studying for a US bar exam.

“Our years of experience providing supplemental materials specifically tailored to internationally educated students, combined with our history of custom curricula for our partner schools, positions us perfectly to guide ULaw students to success on the U.S. Bar exams. . We are honored to collaborate with such a prestigious institution and look forward to a productive partnership with ULaw.

Peter Crisp, Deputy Vice-Chancellor at the University of Law, said:

Law is an incredibly competitive field of work and students should be proactive in further developing their legal knowledge wherever possible, thereby enhancing their employability.

“The US Bar Admission Course is a chance for graduates and lawyers to stand out in the field, as well as open the door to the possibility of an international career and other specialized areas of law. The ULaw/Themis course is also the most affordable and flexible option.
