Chase is offering all FT 2Ls and PT 3L/4Ls a unique opportunity to determine their strengths and weaknesses as they prepare for the bar exam.

On Sat., May 4 from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. in NH 426, a skills-based diagnostic survey developed by Barbri will be administered. Students do not need to study or do anything to prepare for this survey. Anyone who completes the survey will be given a personalized report of their readiness to take the bar exam and specific suggestions for how to improve any deficiencies. 

In addition, there will be a picnic-style party complete with food and beverages in the Eble Student Commons immediately following the survey for anyone who completes it. This is a great way to kick off the summer in style and to enjoy some down time with your classmates following exams!  We hope you will join us! 

For those students with make-up exams on Mon., May 6, there will be a backup administration of the Barbri survey on Sat., Apr. 13 from 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. in NH 426. Those students will still be eligible to attend the party on Sat., May 4.
