The Law School is pleased to offer the PassTheBar program, a series of classes designed specifically to supplement the standard commercial preparation courses for those studying for the bar in Pittsburgh. Pitt Law professors provide instruction on test-taking technique, a guided structure in which to take practice questions and receive feedback, and lectures on selected bar subjects that focus on difficult topics. The program also offers studying tips and, perhaps most importantly, some moral support during the tough two-month stretch of bar preparation. Please note that this program does not replace but rather supplements the standard summer commercial preparation course. Details will be forthcoming in December.

PassTheBar 2019 Documents
The bar exam is certainly demanding and difficult, but gathering needed information about bar exams and bar admissions shouldn't be. Unlike many websites that discuss bar exams or bar admissions, this site is not commercial. It seeks only to provide information: the information law students want and need to know as they strategize and prepare for the next step after law school--becoming a licensed lawyer.
All information on this site is updated annually during the summer or as information is received. Data comes from reliable sources, including the National Conference of Bar Examiners and the bar exam administrators from the various states.
