Pitt Law Launches New Bar Exam Prep Partnership with Themis Bar Review

Through an innovative partnership with Themis Bar Review, University of Pittsburgh School of Law’s Bar Prep Program will provide a comprehensive suite of preparation resources to every student at a discounted price. December 2019 graduates will be among the first to benefit. 
“Pitt Law is known for providing a world-class legal education and for our investment in preparing our students for the legal profession. We wanted a partner who would work closely with us so that we are able to ensure our students’ success in law school and on the bar exam, and we found that, and more, in Themis,” said Dean Amy J. Wildermuth. “Themis offers an innovative and personalized program based on years of research in instructional design that has yielded impressive results. They are committed to collaborating with us to achieve the best possible results for our students and we look forward to working with them."
Through the program, all Pitt Law students receive the following:
Themis first-year and upper-level Law School Essentials materials
First-year diagnostic exams
Access to Themis MBE Quiz Builder ™
Option to enroll in Early Bar Preparation course for law school credit
Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) preparation course
Post-graduation Themis Bar Review course
“I’m excited for the resources we will have available for our students from the first week of orientation through post-graduation bar prep. This integrated support will enable us to identify students’ strengths and weaknesses early, provide supplemental instruction where appropriate, and deliver on our promise to work with each student to chart a path for success through law school and beyond,” said Director of Academic Success and Bar Exam Services, Rob Wible.
In July 2017 and July 2018, 100 percent of Pitt Law graduates who completed at least 75 percent of the Themis prep course passed the Pennsylvania bar exam on their first attempt.
The bar examination is a test intended to determine whether candidates are qualified to practice law in a given jurisdiction. The bar exam is administered twice a year, in February and July.
