LLMs Can Start Preparing for the New York Bar Exam at Intensive Houston Boot Camp


New York, NY, May 2011. BarWrite® and BarWrite Press ( announces that its founder and president, Mary Campbell Gallagher, will offer a two-day Boot Camp for foreign lawyers preparing for the New York bar exam, May 19 and 20, in cooperation with the University of Houston, in Houston, Texas.

Although foreign-trained lawyers now comprise a quarter of candidates for the New York bar exam, in July of 2010, only 47 per cent of the 4,000-plus foreign-trained attorneys who took the New York bar for the first time passed, compared with 86 per cent of first-time takers with J.D.s from ABA-accredited law schools.

Dr. Gallagher says that foreign-trained attorneys are often excellent lawyers who simply do not know how to prepare for the New York bar exam. They too often underestimate the exam and may even attempt to self-study. The BarWrite® Houston Boot Camp will help students jump-start their preparation.

In the Boot Camp, students will learn what and how to study for the New York bar exam. In addition to learning key rules for five of the most important subjects, contracts and UCC, Civil Procedure (CPLR), Real Property, Torts, and Criminal Law and Procedure, students will practice writing essays and receive ample feedback.

Dr. Mary Campbell Gallagher, a graduate of Harvard Law School who holds the Ph.D. in linguistics, is president of BarWrite® and BarWrite Press, which offers large courses preparing candidates for the bar exam. She is also a national lecturer and author of the book and CDs “Scoring High On Bar Exam Essays” and of the forthcoming book “Perform Your Best On The Bar Exam Performance Test (MPT)”.
