We are excited to offer a new program specifically for UALR Bowen School of Law graduates. It is a FREE program, and we will begin offering it for February and July 2014 Arkansas bar exam takers. The Bowen Concurrent Bar Preparation Program is designed to complement the commercial bar review course you may have already purchased. Unlike commercial bar prep courses, the Concurrent Bar Program provides an opportunity for substantial practice time, group study and feedback from your instructor and peers.
This program is highly successful at other law schools including Dean Michael Hunter Schwarz’s previous school, Washburn University School of Law. Dean Schwarz shared this statistic about their program: “All students who attended and fully participated in Washburn’s concurrent bar prep program passed the February 2013 bar exam.” In addition, all Bowen students who attended and completed the minimum competencies passed the July 2013 bar exam.
The program for February 2014 bar exam takers will be offered Monday â€“ Thursday beginning Monday, January 6 and going through Wednesday, February 12, 2014 from 5:30 â€“ 8:30 p.m.
The program for July 2014 bar exam takers will be offered Monday â€“ Thursday beginning Monday, June 2 and going through Thursday, July 10, 2014 from 3:00 â€“ 5:30 p.
Purchase of a commercial bar review course is required to participate. To enroll, sign up below.
If you are taking the bar exam in a state other than Arkansas or cannot attend all of the sessions, please contact Director of Bar Success Services Rejena S. Grotjohn or 501.683.4893 to discuss alternatives that may be available.
