ABA Site Visit Meeting with Students

Beginning February 28, the American Bar Association (ABA) will send a site team to our law school to evaluate our faculty, staff, and students.  The purpose of the evaluation is to make sure that we are complying with the ABA's rules and regulations.  On Monday, February 28 at 5 p.m. and Tuesday, March 1 at 12 p.m. in room 275 the ABA site team will have meetings with our students.  You are encouraged to come to both meetings and discuss any issues that you feel are relevant to your enrollment as a student at the Brandeis School of Law.  Ask questions and feel free to make comments.  Pizza and soft drinks will be provided at both meetings.

3Ls - if you plan on taking a bar exam this summer and haven’t enrolled for our review course yet, this is one of your last chances!!  Remember, BARBRI offers the most comprehensive review course for EVERY jurisdiction in the nation, not just bits and pieces of each exam or certain states.  
What makes BARBRI’s Bar Review Course a better choice?
    • Lectures Offered Across the Nation – our in-classroom lectures are offered live (select locations) and on video at law schools and cities across the nation! No other course has asmany options for you to choose from so whether you are headed to New York, Miami, Houston, L.A. or anywhere in between, we have you covered!

    • Free Repeat Guarantee - We stand behind our course and approach to help you pass the bar exam. If you fail ANY bar exam, you receive a free repeat of that course.
