I Have Been Professionally Disciplined And Have To Take The MPRE
You may be surprised to learn that one of the phone calls we frequently receive is from attorneys who have been professionally disciplined for one reason or another. Often, they are forced to take the MPRE. The great news is that these people usually pass (even if they have never had to take the MPRE before) and if you are in this situation, you can too!

Article by Tish Browning — The Free Legal Aid Clinic (“FLAC”) held its 51st Annual Fundraiser on Saturday, April 16, and it was a tremendous success. FLAC is a student run, non-profit organization that provides free legal services to survivors of domestic violence and the elderly community in the metro-Detroit area, and JD Advising was grateful to be a part of the festivities!
Attorneys from JD Advising helped FLAC students organize their silent auction, and JD Advising was happy to donate two baskets to the auction and a gift certificate for a free, two-hour tutoring session! We enjoyed creating the baskets, which were a “Coffee Lovers Basket” that included a French press, gourmet coffee, and a number of other treats; and an “Italian Dinner Basket,” which contained everything the winner needed to create a delicious Italian meal, including a variety pastas, sauces, a colander, and even an apron.
