Preyal Shah, Assistant Dean for Bar Success
“At NYLS, we have seen, year after year, the value of AdaptiBar. The personalized approach of AdaptiBar allows graduates to maximize strengths and minimize weaknesses, making those who engage with the program better prepared to pass the bar exam. Supporting such programs lets NYLS provide a comprehensive menu of offerings during bar review and in turn, increasing success of our graduates.”

“AdaptiBar was crucial in my preparation for the Bar Exam. Answering a few questions during my commute to and from the library made a drastic difference in my overall performance. AdaptiBar helped transform my weakest part of the bar, the MBE, into my strongest on test day.”
Susan Flynn-Hollander ’85, NYLS Alumni Association Board Member
“I managed to get through the bar prep period—without the assistance of online tools, remote capability, the convenience of AI-directed review questions, or sufficient sleep. And passed. It is because of that harrowing and lonely experience that I support Bar Exam Champions, which provides our bar takers with mentors, practice sessions, bar review courses, and the gift of AdaptBar. AdaptiBar’s data and focused questions are nothing short of incredible. I encourage my fellow alums to contribute to the cause and donate to the efforts of NYLS to ensure that the next generation of our colleagues is optimally prepared to pass the bar.”
Shana Thomas ’20
“My daily use of AdaptiBar really helped me prepare for the bar exam. Having the ability to build my own quizzes allowed me to efficiently test my knowledge, as well as strengthen my weaker areas within each MBE subject. It was also extremely helpful to take AdaptiBar's timed practice sets because they gave me a feel for what the MBE questions would look like on the actual bar exam. AdaptiBar gave me the confidence and practice I needed to pass the bar!”
