Open New Doors with IE Law School & BARBRI
Expand you career options globally
As we live in an increasingly globalized, interdependent world and the demand for legal professionals who understand the workings and complexities of more than one legal system continues to grow, we need to train lawyers with a global mindset.
At IE Law School, we are committed to fostering global legal education so that lawyers can pursue careers internationally, across different legal systems, and manage trans-border transactions and multijurisdictional issues.
In order to bridge the gap, we have partnered with BARBRI, the number one bar examination review course in the United States, to give our LL.M. students qualified as lawyers the chance to take the California Bar Examination and become qualified to practice law in the US. BARBRI has been ranked the number one bar review course thanks to its innovative and flexible study tools. For those BARBRI international students who completed 80% or more of the Personal Study Plan, 76% of them passed the bar exam.
Our partnership with BARBRI offers students the opportunity to study American law and acquire the necessary credentials to make global practice a reality. BARBRI’s International Bar Preparation Program is designed with adaptability in mind; more specifically, it’s designed to help non-U.S. and qualified lawyers pass the U.S.’ most difficult bar examination.
Why did we partner with BARBRI?
Flexible & Online
The BARBRI International Bar Preparation program is a highly flexible, 10-month online program that has been specifically designed to accommodate your needs. This program can be tailored around your other commitments, whether professional or academic, so you can study whenever and wherever suits you best.
Personal Study Plan
The program provides you with a Personal Study Plan (PSP) to ensure you receive guidance every step of the way. Analyses of data collected from your assignments, simulated exams, and directed essay grading will give you all the information you need to stay at the top of your game and study smarter, by allowing you to focus on the areas that need the most work.
Foundations in U.S. law designed for non-U.S. educated law graduates
Finally, this program is enhanced by our renowned American law school professors who are there to provide all non-U.S.-educated law graduates with the tools and skills they need to tackle the bar examination.
An enriching learning experience

Brussels Immersion Week
Students meet with the heads of Competition practices at the world’s prestigious international firms and the in-house departments of global companies. To cap it off, the trip exposes students to the European political machine with visits to lobbyists and meetings with European Commission regulators themselves.
Students are exposed to the legal market of the world’s financial capital. We take a front row seat in London’s legal marketplace where we engage with London’s preeminent lawyers and discuss their practice, and the changing landscape of finance, international law and legal services in London.Learn more
