Academic & Bar Success

NYLS Academic & Bar Success Initiatives

To best prepare students for admission to the bar, NYLS lays out a road map for the multi-step process of fulfilling state bar licensing requirements. NYLS also offers individualized counseling for bar exam preparation and a range of other bar support programs. The School’s upper-level skills courses build upon the foundation in legal analysis that students receive in their first year of law school, providing emphasis on bar-exam writing and test-taking skills.

Bar success programs include a bar exam information session, a bar exam kick-off, a bar study mentoring program, bar exam skills workshops, and simulated exams.
