ONU recognizes the importance of support and the level of connection needed as students navigate through their bar exam studies. We provide all of our ONU Law students with customized support from the Bar Success Coordinator beginning in their second year, when they register for the bar exam.
ONU Law also has a Bar Course of Study that is required for all students below a 2.5 GPA after their first year of law school. This course of study steers students into classes that are regularly tested on the bar exam to help these students prepare for the bar exam.
ONU Law also offers bar preparation courses (PASS I & II) during the students' third year of study to allow students to get academic credit and an early start to studying for the bar exam. This is designed to reinforce students' knowledge of the law as well as their analytical and writing skills in the context of highly-tested subject areas, as they prepare to take the bar examination. PASS I & II introduces them to the structure of the bar exam, multiple choice questions, essays, and performance tests which they will encounter on state bar exams. Students complete practice questions, review lectures, and take simulated exams while receiving feedback from the professor on their performance and areas for improvement.
The Bar Success Coordinator becomes the student’s main point of contact once they begin studying for the bar exam so that students feel completely supported through their studies after law school.
