Thank you to our February 2020 Bar Exam Coaches!

Ahead of the February 2020 Uniform Bar Exam in Massachusetts, 35 attorneys provided coaching and guidance to individuals taking the bar exam. The BBA’s Bar Exam Coaching Program matches coaches with bar applicants to support them throughout the preparation process. Coaches keep applicants on track with a study schedule and provide tips for managing time and stress.

The program also consists of workshops for both coaches and applicants. The BBA thanks Kandace Kukas of Northeastern University School of Law for her instructional workshop for coaches, as well as Jonny Schreiber of the Massachusetts Association of Realtors and Adrian Velazquez of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts for their workshop on the essay writing portions of the bar exam.

This program focuses particularly on assisting applicants who are retaking the bar exam in Massachusetts.  Through this program, we hope to provide support and community during the stressful and sometimes isolating experience of studying for the bar exam.
