ABA webinar offers tips to law graduates preparing for the bar

By Irma Romero

The American Bar Association is offering a free webinar to help law students and graduates prepare for the bar exam.  During the May 22 program, “Bar Exam Prep: 30 Tips in 30 Minutes,” a panel of new lawyers who have passed the bar exam recently will provide real-life pointers.

“As individuals who have experienced taking the bar not so long ago, we know firsthand how stressful bar prep can be,” said Tommy D. Preston Jr. of Nexsen Pruet LLC in Columbia, S.C. Preston served as program lead on developing the webinar. “We just want to offer some advice and tips, but more importantly, show grads that the ABA cares about them and wants to support them during this critical time.”

The ABA offers free membership to new graduates of ABA-accredited law schools.

The “Bar Exam Prep” webinar will explore such topics as study schedule, mindset and attitude, practice tests, and exam week and exam day. The moderated panel discussion will include personal advice from new lawyers. A downloadable tip sheet will also be available. Law grads can also get tips by looking for the hashtag #ABABARTIP when following the ABA on Twitter at @ABAEsq.

"There is no better way to prepare for the bar exam than to hear from those who have already been there,” said panel moderator Christina M. Huszcza, an associate at Tucker Ellis LLP in Denver and a program lead on developing the webinar. “This webinar focuses on tips from current ABA members that will greatly improve the current examinees’ lives over the summer months. It’s an invaluable resource for every bar examinee.”

The webinar features panelists:

  • Dave Morrow of BuckleySandler LLP in Washington, D.C.
  • Erika Robinson of Gregory, Doyle, Calhoun & Rogers LLC in Marietta, Ga.
  • Bryan Rogers of O'Neill McFadden & Willett LLP, Schererville, Ind.

“Bar Exam Prep” is the result of a collaboration of the Young Lawyers Division and Law Student Division.
