BEST Program

The BEST Program is a twelve week program available to students after graduation. Participation is on a voluntary basis; however, all FAMU students are strongly encouraged to participate fully. The BEST Program is free of charge to all FAMU first time bar takers, as well as alumni who have previously attempted, unsuccessfully, to pass the bar exam.

The BEST Program provides a higher level of individualized structure and support for FAMU graduates who are taking the bar exam. The BEST Program compliments the commercial bar review program that each student takes by incorporating essay and multiple-choice writing workshops, by providing essay grading and feedback, individualized tracking and exam training, and a thorough structured study plan to assist students in passing the bar exam. The BEST Program is not a course and does not replace the need for a commercial bar review course.

Students that have participated in the BEST Program have passed at a higher overall bar passage rate than their equally situated counterparts that chose not to participate in the structured BEST Program.
