Second Career and Older Students Facing the Bar Exam

We have seen many older students who have decided to go back to law school as a second career. Sometimes it seems like their fellow students, who are younger than they are, seem to pick up the material faster, despite the younger students’ often careless attitudes towards studying.

The older student finishes law school, but despite studying hard, has trouble picking up the tactics and strategies to pass the bar exam.

Statistics show that older students and students coming from a second career score lower on the bar exam than the average law student. There are many theories for this disparity, but it’s not that the older student doesn’t know the material. The difference is how the older student applies the material in a lawyer-like fashion when he/she has spent time at another career. As we know, legal writing is much different than writing for a newspaper or writing a report for your previous job.

The MBE Testing Institute has worked with many older students who are pursuing a second career as a lawyer but are having trouble passing the bar exam. We understand your problems and have the solution to help you pass the bar exam.

The MBE Testing Institute know that taking the bar exam as a repeat taker can be an isolating experience. The MBE Testing Institute helps the student keep motivated and confident through interaction with an MBE Testing Institute’s bar tutor.
