For third-year law students, finishing exams is just the beginning of a long, hard-fought grand finale. The only thing standing between you and your right to practice law is a single exam spanning two days. Pass it, and you’re free. Here are seven reasons why Pieper Bar Review is the only choice for law students who are serious about passing.
1. Unparalleled Expertise
Three members of the Pieper family—John, Damian and Troy—have dedicated much of their lives to mastery of the bar exam. Combined, they have taken the bar exam and been admitted to practice in over 40 states. The bar exam is challenging, and, like most exams, it helps to learn the tested material from the experts, with whom you'll be working directly.
2. Specially Designed Courses to Accommodate Your Unique Needs
Not everyone who takes the UBE can earn a passing score their first time around. In fact, most don’t. Just 59% percent of all first-time takers managed to earn a passing score on the February 2018 UBE, for example. For those who can’t afford to dedicate the same hours to studying and review the second time around, there’s Pieper’s concentrated review. This course is specially designed to accommodate working people who scored a 250 or higher but haven't quite amassed enough points to pass (e.g. a 266 in New York).
Foreign-Trained Currently Enrolled LLMs
It's oftentimes the foreign-trained attorneys who have the most impressive resumes and prestigious educational pedigrees yet still have trouble passing the UBE. That's because they simply do not have backgrounds in American constitutional law, evidence, civil procedure, and other subjects covered in standard American Law School curricula. Pieper aims to level the playing field, by granting early access to lecture videos, providing free foundational texts (Law 101 and 1001 Legal Words You Need to Know, among others), and inviting students to weekly, hour-long review sessions.
3. Easy-to-Learn Mnemonics
The UBE requires a mastery of the substantive law across an incredibly broad range of topics. Pieper's mnemonic devices are designed to aid your overstimulated memory so that you'll have fundamental concepts memorized and can deliver clear, correct explanations of the law efficiently on the exam. These memory devices have proven to be precious helpers to current and former students alike, as many former students report that they still remember and use them in their professional lives.
4. Practice MBE questions
Whether or not you sign on with Pieper, you can sign up for Pieper’s MBE Question of the Day. You’ll receive an MBE question in your email inbox each weekday morning. These questions come complete with explanations for why each answer is correct or incorrect, so that you can learn something new (and get closer to passing the bar exam) each day.
5. Pieper Guarantee
The Pieper Guarantee asserts that each student who takes the UBE for the first time will pass the exam on the first try, or he or she will be entitled to repeat Pieper's Classic Full Bar Review Course completely free of charge for the next administration of the exam.
6. Access to Discounts
Passing the bar exam is priceless, but that shouldn’t mean shelling out your life savings on a review course. Students may qualify for discounted tuition if they've done any of these three things:
1. Served on one of their school's academic journals
2. Served on their school's moot court team
3. Committed to a career in public service
Additionally, for students retaking the exam who have taken a course, any course, in the last five years, either with Pieper or with another review company, Pieper offers the opportunity to retake the full review course with a discount of $900.
7. Pieper People Pass
The proof is, as they say, in the pudding. There are ample reasons why you should choose Pieper for your UBE review needs, but this is, by far, the most important. People who study with Pieper have an excellent track record of beating the exam, and go on to have successful, fulfilling careers in law—but don't take our word for it!
With the Pieper family's more than 40 years of expertise, the most lecture hours of any bar review course, and more than 1,500 pages of outlines, Pieper’s Full Bar Review Course delivers all the substantive law you’ll need to pass the UBE, along with the strategies for mastering multiple-choice questions and maximizing your scores on the MEE and the MPT.
