Kaplan Bar Review Expands Full-Service Bar Review To An Additional Four States: Connecticut, Louisiana, Oregon And Rhode Island

Kaplan Bar Review, a leading provider of full-service bar preparation, is launching its full-service bar review programs to students preparing for the state bar exams in four more states: Connecticut and Rhode Island, in time for the February 2014 bar exams, and Louisiana and Oregon, in time for the July 2014 bar exams. This latest expansion brings to 42 the total number of states served by Kaplan Bar Review (as of July 2014), accounting for more than 96 percent of the entire U.S. bar-taking population.

“Kaplan Bar Review’s expansion of full-service bar review to these four additional states enables students in these states to benefit from our unsurpassed curriculum and resources, and builds on our continued success in helping an ever-growing number of law students across the country to pass the bar,” said Steven Marietti, vice president and general manager, Kaplan Bar Review. “We’re pleased to deliver students Kaplan Bar Review’s practical tools to help them understand and remember legal concepts; unlimited essay grading that provides students with clear and specific feedback; exam-like, multiple-choice practice questions; and an adaptive, exam-focused daily syllabus that progressively tailors learning to individual students and helps them improve their weakest areas.”

Although pass rates vary by state, overall 67 percent of all bar exam takers (55,253 out of 82,920) nationally passed their exam in 2012 (the most recent fully recorded year). The pass rates for all students in Connecticut (73 percent), Oregon (72 percent), and Rhode Island (78 percent) were above the national average; Louisiana’s pass rate of 59 percent was below.
