Hi everyone!

I am an Australian Lawyer and thinking of studying for the July New York bar exam, and looking for study buddies to help me avoid insanity and share the load!

Over June/July 2019, I am of thinking of taking 2 months off work to study for it on a remote European beach somewhere ... any takers?

Hi all

I'm an Australian lawyer looking to sit the NY bar in July 2019, and have signed up to the Themis LLM advantage program.

I'd also be keen to join a WhatsApp / email discussion thread if there's one going!

I was thinking the same thing. Have any new tester takers, NY schools, gotten theirs? Everyone else will get theirs the next day. That would be helpful to know.

I heard that first time graduates from NY schools got the email today, so everyone else will likely receive the email within the next two days.

I chose BarMax because I know I won't be able to keep up with more voluminous materials and strict review schedules, and I will freak out if I can't keep up.

Planning to supplement with leansheets after I finish all subject, and Seperac issue spotting for essays closer to the exams.

I'm in the US right now, anyone wants to exchange info for emails and stuff, I'm open to that.

Was lucky to open the email almost immediately and got NYC. No white plains though - assuming it’s handwriting only?

Lola, where are you coming from? Also, WP is not always offered in February and sometimes that is a handwriting only location.

Lane and lola, I worked in Albany for a time and took the bar there, if you have questions

Where in the UK are you based? I am based in London and aiming to sit NY bar exam in Jul 19.


Hi! I am based in London as well, and planning to take the Jul 10 exam as well. To everyone on this thread, what bar review course are you recommending other than themis? I work full time and therefore will need to start studying much earlier. Contact me on my email (shengeh@gmail.com) or on whatsapp +447831132808.



Hi, thanks for replying to my post. I'm not going to sit NY bar this July as I'm going to do the LLM instead.
