NEW YORK, Aug. 16, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Global legal education provider BARBRI is teaming up with the New Value corporate benefit club to offer Brazilian lawyers the opportunity to become a U.S.-licensed attorney.
BARBRI's Extended U.S. Bar Preparation, the leading bar preparation for international law graduates and lawyers, is now available to members of New Value's corporate benefit network to prepare them for U.S. Bar Exams. More than 80,000 Brazilian lawyers affiliated with New Value partner law firms and attorneys' associations are now eligible to receive favorable BARBRI course fees.
The BARBRI Extended U.S. Bar Preparation is specially designed for non-U.S. law graduates and lawyers to comprehensively prepare them to sit for a U.S. state bar exam. Starting with a 90-hour overview of U.S. Law, BARBRI offers a combination of online Home Study and classroom workshops, and focuses on those topics international students find difficult and/or are most frequently examined. Each student is supported by a personal study mentor who is a U.S.-qualified attorney and expert advisor on the U.S. bar exams.
"With traditional routes to qualification undergoing significant changes around the world, as well as jurisdictions opening up licensing eligibility to foreign-trained lawyers, qualifying and gaining experience in multiple jurisdictions is increasingly important for the 21st-century lawyer," said Natalia M. Urrea, BARBRI International Director. "Thanks to this new partnership between BARBRI and New Value, obtaining a U.S. qualification is now much more accessible to Brazilian lawyers."
"Our focus is on providing relevant and valuable benefits for the members affiliated with our partner firms and associations," added Marco Michaluate, New Value Founder. "We are excited to team with an education leader of BARBRI's stature to offer the attorneys in our network the opportunity to advance their careers through obtaining a U.S. attorney's license."
