Bar Preparation Program

Beginning with the July 2024 bar exam, Mizzou Law provides its J.D. graduates with a comprehensive bar preparation program through Helix Bar Review.

Helix Bar Review is a state-of-the-art bar prep program created by the nonprofit organization AccessLex Institute to provide a best-in-class, full-service bar review course designed for today’s law student.

Resources provided by Helix Bar Review include:

  • Diagnostics to identify areas of strength and weakness;
  • Structured study plans and schedules to help students stay on track;
  • 1500+ flashcards organized by topic to help students learn important rules and definitions;
  • 330+ short topic-specific videos instead of hours-long lectures;
  • More than 3,000 MBE practice questions and 148 essay/MPT practice questions;
  • Feedback on graded essay and MPT questions from Helix graders—all licensed attorneys;
  • A modern, online learning platform to maximize user experience;
  • Utilization of the latest learning science for increased understanding and long-term retention; and
  • Exceptional customer support.

Helix Bar Review provides 10, 12, 16 and 20-week study schedules to fit the needs of every student. Depending on the schedule selected, students can begin their bar review course during their last semester of law school or after graduation.

Mizzou Law students enrolled in Helix Bar Review also receive Helix MBE — the perfect resource for multiple-choice practice. Helix MBE includes videos, flashcards, the Helix Game Center, and more.

Helix Bar Review also offers a free online course for the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE), which is available to all Mizzou Law students.

Finally, Helix is already preparing for changes to the bar exam coming in July 2026 when the NextGen exam launches. The entering class of 2023 will be the first to take the redesigned NextGen bar exam, and Mizzou Law and Helix are committed to making sure our students are ready.

Mizzou Law’s partnership with Helix Bar Review begins with December 2023 J.D. graduates. Alumni who graduated prior to December 2023 may participate in Helix Bar Review at a discounted price. Alumni who are interested should contact Kellie Early at for additional information.
