Bar preparation can be costly, time-consuming and downright confusing for law students, but Syracuse University College of Law administrators are hoping to lessen those burdens by partnering with AccessLex Institute for free access to a new bar review program.

The law school and the legal education nonprofit entered into a three-year agreement, starting this year, for students’ free access to the Helix Bar Review preparation course. Law students will be granted earlier access to the material, compared to commercial programs, so they can complete the course on their schedule.
