Frequently asked questions

Law Preview builds better law students. If you are planning to enter law school, the grades you earn during the 1L year will largely determine whether you will see a meaningful return on the investment you’re making in a legal education.

Law Preview is a carefully designed program that positions serious students to excel during the all-important 1L year by providing overviews of the core first-year subjects as well as proven study and exam-taking tactics.

Mathematically, a law student’s first semester grades will largely determine their overall first-year GPA and class rank. Given the cost of a legal education, walking into your 1L without a proven plan for finishing at the top of your class is a profoundly flawed strategy.

Whether you are entering a T14 law school on a full-ride, or just got in off the waitlist at a lower-ranked school, you applied to law school to provide yourself with more options upon graduation.

While almost all students in your class will make the same investment of time and money for a law degree, first-year students in the top 10% simply have more options than their classmates in the bottom 90%. This is because top 1L grades open doors while even average grades close them.

Walking into law school with a solid game plan yields more options upon graduation.

There are no prerequisites to attend Law Preview. Most of our students take our program after they have been admitted to law school, during the summer before they begin classes.

However, a growing number of students are taking Law Preview even before they apply to law school to better understand the subject matter and workload before making such an important decision.

In addition to mastering case law analysis, case briefing, outlining and exam-writing, our students walk into law school with a foundational understanding of their core 1L classes taught by some of the best legal minds in the country.

Law Preview not only provides serious students with the knowledge and skills they will need to excel during the 1L year, it also helps them avoid many pitfalls and missteps encountered by their smart but unprepared classmates.

By walking into law school with a carefully crafted plan for the 1L year, Law Preview students have a concrete understanding of what is expected of them if they intend to receive an invitation onto Law Review the following June.

Would you run a marathon without any training? Just because someone offers you a bib to join the race, it’s probably ill-advised line up for the start without building up your endurance.

In the end, even if you are able to limp across the finish line, it’s highly unlikely that you would place among the elite runners who approach the race with discipline, strategy and a plan to win.

Law school is no different than a marathon, except that it is significantly more competitive (and expensive) and only a select few at the top of the class cross the finish line realizing a meaningful return on their investment. Walking into such an environment without preparation, but expecting success, is an incredibly risky move.

The on-demand course will be available to registered students until May 31, 2025.

We know that law school can be expensive and that BARBRI's Law Preview prep course, although an indispensable way of protecting your educational investment, is not within every student’s summer budget. That's why we allow you to finance with Affirm during enrollment to create easy, fixed monthly payments over 3, 6 or 12 months at 0% or 10 - 36% APR.

The interest rate (0% or 10-36% APR) and term options (3, 6 or 12 months) you are offered is based on the tuition amount and on a credit check. You can check your eligibility during enrollment and it will not impact your credit score – provide some basic information and get a real-time decision to split your purchase into 3, 6, or 12 monthly payments at 0% or 10 - 36% APR. For example, on a $700 purchase, you may pay $63.18 for 12 months with a 15% APR.

Once you Finance with Affirm, you will begin making payments immediately to Affirm, but the entire balance of your tuition does not need to be paid prior to your course starting or ending.

Rates from 0% APR or 10-36% APR. Payment options through Affirm are subject to an eligibility check, may not be available in all states, and are provided by these lending partners: affirm.com/lenders. Options depend on your purchase amount, and a down payment may be required. CA residents: Loans by Affirm Loan Services, LLC are made or arranged pursuant to a California Finance Lenders Law license.

When you finance, a down payment may be required and Affirm loans are made by Cross River Bank, a New Jersey state-chartered bank, Member FDIC. Learn more about Financing with Affirm.
