Bar Exam Strategies and Stories Program

Are there ways to help those who take the Colorado Bar Exam to better prepare and improve their performance? That is the question being studied by the Colorado Supreme Court Office of Attorney Admissions in conjunction with a team of law and psychology researchers from Indiana University, University of Southern California, and Stanford University.

The research team surveyed and interviewed people preparing for the bar exam to help develop the Bar Exam Strategies and Stories Program. The program was offered for the first time in California in 2018 and has been offered for subsequent years, since.

The online program includes an introductory film, stories from prior test takers, and a writing activity in which participants share insights and strategies that may be useful to them and to future test takers.

The Colorado Supreme Court Office of Attorney Admissions is offering the program to all applicants for the Colorado bar exam for July 2021. Registering for the program takes approximately 15 minutes, and can be done by clicking here.

You will receive the link to the program in an e-mail as you begin your bar preparations.
