California Bar - Recommendations for best/cheapest foreign credential evaluation service?


Syd2030

Hi all,

I have plans to sit for the California Bar exam, and I need to start the ball rolling on submitting my foreign credentials for evaluation (I'm Australian and did my law degree in Australia).

Does anyone have a recommendation for the best service on this list?

Thanks very much!

Weird that they don't include World Education Services... 

I would check each website, and then look them up on the Better Business Bureau (www.bbb.org/search)

Good luck.

Hi. I came across your post but I really wonder if you still come here. Did you end up taking the CA Bar? I'm also planning to take the CA Bar. Do you mind telling me which credential evaluation service you ended up using and why? i also have a foreign law degree but not sure right now what to do. Thanks!

I bought Themis! All the materials should be arriving in Wed! One friend of mine recommended me this program, we studied at the my same law school at Mexico and she did an LLM and passed the Texas Bar Exam. 

The MPRE and some courses are open so you can give it a try! Their web page is not the best! My friend told me that she liked that their videos are around 10-15 min and this makes the studying time easier rather than a 1 hr lecture. 

I think they have a fair price (they all are really expensive) in comparison to the other commercial ones. I choose them because of price, the unlimited essay revision and it includes access to UWorld's MBE Question Bank (I haven't used it, but I guess its good to have it). 

I cannot give you a greater review because I am planning in sitting for the bar this July but I hope this info is useful and good luck with the exam!
