Bar Prep Information for Current Students

Helix Bar Review

Syracuse Law has partnered with legal education nonprofit AccessLex Institute to offer its interactive Helix Bar Review prep course free of charge to its students.

Helix Bar Review is a state-of-the-art, comprehensive bar review program that offers:

  • Full access to the course up to 20 weeks before the bar exam. This early access is in contrast with other bar review programs, which restrict full access until 10 -12 weeks before the exam. It also enables students to kick-start their preparation, and balance their multiple responsibilities in law school, at work, or at home.
  • Personalized pathways and flexible options are designed to adapt to your individual learning style and to help you efficiently shape and use you study time.
  • Traditional components of a bar review course—such as substantive law outlines, practice questions, and flashcards—are connected to state-of-the-art active learning and other methods that support long-term retention. 
  • Multiple instructional design innovations, such as short videos, illustrations, checklists, performance tests, gamification, live “Ask the Experts” webinars that target frequently missed questions and misunderstood concepts, and intensive day-long workshops called “Pass Classes.” 
  • Currently, Helix Bar Review offers study materials for the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE), Multistate Essay Exam (MEE), Multistate Bar Exam (MBE), Multistate Performance Test (MPT), and Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE). Helix also offers state-specific courses in Florida and California.
