Episode Notes

Richard Conviser joins hosts Fabiani Duarte and Madison Burke for a discussion about the history of BARBRI, why it was founded, and how it continues to help law students pass the most important exam of their career. Hear why successful test takers fail the Bar exam, the growing prominence of the Uniform Bar Exam, and why barriers-to-entry exist in the legal profession.

Professor Richard Conviser is probably best known for founding BARBRI. Today, he teaches antitrust, corporations, business associations, and conflicts of laws at the Illinois Institute of Technology’s Chicago-Kent College of Law. Prior to that, Conviser was an associate at Baker & McKenzie. In addition, he was appointed by the governor of Illinois to establish its first foreign operation where he served as deputy European director in Brussels, Belgium. Professor Conviser is the author of numerous publications and currently serves as editorial director of Gilbert Law Summaries.
