We understand that it’s a tough transition for foreign applicants to take and pass the bar exam in the United States.

You will receive early access to a 10 session additional pre-course designed exclusively for LL.M students. This extra course will cover U.S legal writing, analysis, essay and performance test preparation. It will also include test-taking strategies and focus on building your knowledge of the heavily tested items on the bar exam.

Enhanced Lectures for LL.M Students

Once you have finished the general Bar Review course, we will analyse your performance and produce a Final Study Plan, which will incorporate the highest yield subjects.

How will I learn all the law as I’ve only taken 1 year of US classes? LL.M. students are usually most worried about this aspect of the bar. Your concerns should actually be with the essays and not with learning the law. LL.M.’s actually don’t usually struggle here as the lectures are very clear and it’s easy enough to learn a subject in the span of two days.
We do not guide all students at the same speed through the material and our Personalised Pass Program takes into account that you’ve only been studying for one year. We will track exactly where you are struggling highlight these areas with you.
What do LL.M.’s struggle with the most? Definitely the written portion. LL.M.’s tend to need a lot of practice in this area especially since many of these topics are new to you and you aren't likely to have experience writing on these subjects. Kaplan is the only company to give unlimited and unconditional essay grading. We also allow you to start your practice as soon as you want to ensure that you can do multiple essays per subject as is recommended. Additionally, our Kaplan Certified Essay Graders will provide feedback by continuing to adjust your writing style to fit exactly what the bar exam requires for a passing answer.
What kind of practice will I get? The most test-like practice. At Kaplan all of the Essays and Performance Tests are the ones that actually showed up on your state bar exam. For the MBE, we are the only company that has the PMBR questions, which have been rated as being the most test- like questions out there to ensure that you are getting the real experience of the Bar with your practice every day!
Can I start studying immediately? We provide you with early access, so that you can start immediately! Although the general Bar Review portion of your course will begin 90 days before the test date you will have access to over 2,000 MBE questions, our entire Foundation course, and our flashcards. This is more than any student ever gets close to finishing before the general course starts, but we like to provide this to you just in case you want to get started with your prep now. PLUS, you have full immediate access to our LL.M. Fundamentals Pre-course.
