Building on its strong record of high bar passage rates, exceptional academics, and graduate employment, St. John's University School of Law's commitment to integrate bar review preparation within the curriculum of all of its students signals an even more holistic approach to student success — from initial legal education to professional licensing and eventual job placement. Current students will benefit from enhanced resources including study aids, formative assessments, MPRE preparation, bar review materials access and more. Future incoming classes will have the bar review course automatically included within their tuition.

BARBRI's Bar Review is the leading bar preparation solution on the market today, and has helped more than 1.3 million lawyers pass a U.S. bar exam over the last 50 years. In fact, more law students have passed the bar exam relying upon BARBRI than all other courses combined, with the company's long history of pass rate success dating back 80-plus bar exams.

"St. John's Law has a long tradition of success on the bar exam, and our current 'ultimate' two-year pass rate is 96%," said Dean Michael A. Simons. "This partnership with BARBRI will continue that tradition by enabling us to seamlessly integrate a wide variety of enhanced resources into our already robust academic success program."

In addition to the services noted above, the partnership also provides St. John's faculty, administration, and students with access to unique analytics to maximize teaching and student performance throughout law school.

"BARBRI and St. John's share the common goal of fostering law student success and developing career-ready professionals," said BARBRI President Mike Sims. "Consequently, our collaboration is centered on solutions that deliver key insights and learnings to the faculty and administration, as well as the knowledge for students themselves to succeed. St. John's Law leadership has a well-deserved reputation for its student success and we're excited to take part of raising that to the next level."
