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.
