The BBA’s Bar Exam Coaching Program assists new graduates as they prepare to sit for the bar exam and confront all the stresses that come along with studying. The Bar Coaching Program will address both test taking preparation and offer support to exam takers. Coaches will assist graduates with study schedules, stress management, and other non-substantive aspects of preparing for the exam. Graduates can also expect supplemental programming from the BBA such as essay writing and attacking the MBE.

Interested in signing up to receive a mentor?

Interested in volunteering as a coach?

We are always seeking attorneys who are interested in coaching recent graduates as they study for the bar exam. Coaches are only expected to provide guidance on the non-substantive aspects of preparing for the exam. Training resources and guidance are provided by the BBA. Meeting schedules are determined by the mentor-mentee pair, though roughly once every 1-2 weeks is typical.

If you would like to volunteer as a coach, please complete  this online information form.
