UMKC Bar Prep Program

UMKC’s support for its students does not end at graduation. UMKC continues to assist our students as they face the last hurdle to practicing law. The bar examination for any state will be one of the most intellectually challenging experiences of any law school graduate’s life. The stakes are high, as is the attendant stress. UMKC aids our students by supplementing their bar preparation from commercial vendors with a unique program focused on the strategies and tactics to focus their preparation in order to pass the bar exam.

UMKC Bar Prep Classes meet once or twice a week in the afternoons for our summer bar prep course and in the evenings for our winter bar prep course. All classes are videotaped and posted online. Remember our key focus is not the classes themselves, but completing practice essays every week. We will also cooperate with UMKC J.D. or LL.M. students who are not in Kansas City during the summer.
