Hello my fellow challenge seekers,

Studying law has always filled me with a certain level of satisfaction. I love learning, and the different modules throughout law school kept me entertained enough to actually graduate. And while I am a hopeless traveler, I am also a challenge seeker. So, it didn’t come as a surprise, that just weeks after graduation I embarked on a journey with BARBRI. And when I say a journey, I mean it!

The study whenever, wherever program allowed me to do the course while I was traveling. I was able to download my lectures on my phone and watch them offline on my long-haul flights. The 10-month part-time study requires only 10-15 hours of study a week. Yes, I spent a couple of hours listening to tort lectures during my California vacation, but I was rocking the rest of my time on the beach and downtown.

Earlier this year I popped my lecture notes into my carry on and I was off to Iceland for the weekend. Spent a couple of hours in a coffee shop to warm up and to read through my notes. And the evening? I was off to hunt for the Aurora Borealis, the infamous Northern Lights.

Just because I am studying for the New York Bar, my life didn’t stop.

I am working full time and travelling abroad whenever I can. I needed to get creative in how I use my time and study material. I follow my Personal Study Plan, which allocates my study load for me. I use the BARBRI app to view material offline and use the books when I do intensive studying.

So, I would encourage you to sign up and challenge yourself to further your legal career and still have time for the things that matter.
