Uniform Bar Exam Tutoring: How it Can Help and Where I Can Find It

 The bar exam is daunting—regardless of whether you are taking it for the first time or as a repeat taker. Many students are hesitant to get a tutor because of the expense associated with it. This is obviously a valid consideration. But the flip of that coin is that you should consider the cost associated with failing the bar exam (it can get expensive).
