DALLAS, Dec. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Widener University School of Law in Delaware (Widener Law Delaware) – the state's only law school – and BARBRI, the nation's preeminent legal education company, have renewed their contract for bar review services. BARBRI will continue to exclusively facilitate Widener Law Delaware's bar review course for the state bar exam.
"BARBRI and Widener have enjoyed a longstanding, successful partnership characterized by both organizations' commitment to preparing the most successful law students and new attorneys," said Mike Sims, president of BARBRI. "Our esteemed national lecturers are the best in the business who will give graduates every advantage come bar exam time."
Widener Law Delaware has acted for the past 14 years as the state's only licensee of BARBRI MBE (Multistate Bar Examination) testing materials and certain online resources, which it made available to students enrolled in its Widener Delaware Bar Review Course. Widener staff taught and operated the course, an independent bar studies program.
Beginning with the summer 2014 session, Widener Law Delaware subject matter experts delivered the live lectures at Widener, and BARBRI began administering all aspects of the course – video and workshop lectures included.
"Before we renewed our agreement with BARBRI, we conducted due diligence by reviewing other bar review companies," said Larasz Moody, director of bar programs at Widener Law Delaware. "Interim Dean Erin Daly, Associate Dean for Academic Affairs Stephen Friedman and I all agreed to stay with BARBRI given its history of success and ongoing course improvement efforts. We're pleased to continue offering our students the best bar review program available."
Any students anywhere – not just Widener Law Delaware students – who are qualified to sit for the Delaware, or any state's bar exam, may leverage the BARBRI online, interactive course. BARBRI materials incorporate advanced technology based on Nobel Prize-winning research into how people learn and the engaging aspects of video and online games to teach foundational rules of law, so students learn faster and retain information longer.
Students who register through January 31, 2015, for the BARBRI online or live, on-campus course at Widener Law Delaware – the only live bar review course offered in Delaware – will receive an early enrollment discount and inexpensive options to add study aids for an additional state bar exam.
