Legal education provider BARBRI will train Brazilian lawyers by teaming up with the New Value corporate benefit club and offer them the opportunity to become US-licensed attorneys, it has announced.
The BARBRI Extended US Bar Preparation is now available to New Value’s corporate benefit network to prepare them for US Bar Exams.
This means, with this push by BARBRI to train Brazilian lawyers, more than 80,000 Brazilian lawyers who are affiliated with New Value partner law firms and attorneys’ associations are now eligible to receive favourable BARBRI course fees.
BARBRI to train Brazilian lawyers with programme specifically for non-US graduates
BARBRI’s Extended US Bar Preparation is designed specifically for non-US lawyers and law graduates to comprehensively prepare them to sit a US state bar exam.
The course begins with a 90-hour overview of US law and offers a combination of online Home Study and classroom workshops, focusing on topics that international students are known to find difficult and/or are most frequently examined.
Each student is supported by a personal study mentor who is a US-qualified attorney and an expert advisor on the US bar exams.
Natalia M Urrea, International Director of BARBRI said: “With traditional routes to qualification undergoing significant changes around the world, as well as jurisdictions opening up licensing eligibility to foreign-trained lawyers, qualifying experience in multiple jurisdictions is increasingly important for the 21st-century lawyer.
“Thanks to the new partnership between BARBRI and New Value, obtaining a US qualification is now much more accessible to Brazilian lawyers.”
New Value Founder, Marco Michalaute added: “Our focus is on providing relevant and valuable benefits for the members affiliated with our partner firms and associations.
“We are excited to team with an education leader of BARBRI’s stature to offer the attorneys in our network the opportunity to advance their careers through obtaining a US attorney’s license.”
