Kaplan Offers ‘Full-Service Bar Review’ in Three States

A company that provides bar review courses for the multistate exam will offer state-specific bar review courses in three states.

Kaplan PMBR announced it will offer “full-service bar review” courses in New York, New Jersey and Florida, according to a press release. The Florida program will be available for the winter 2009 bar exam. The New York and New Jersey programs will start in time for the summer 2009 exam.

The exam-prep company will offer features such as online course videos for students who miss lectures, an online quiz builder and personalized study plans.

Kaplan and competitor BAR/BRI, a unit of Thomson Corp., reached a $49 million settlement last year in a suit that contended the two companies conspired to monopolize their test markets for test preparation courses.

A Kaplan spokeswoman told the New York Law Journal that the decision to launch the new courses was unrelated to the litigation.
