Bar Success Research Grant Program

 

Overview

Overview

The Bar Success Research Grant Program funds well-designed and rigorous studies of the bar examination. Examples of focus include predictors of bar exam performance; bar exam test design and/or efficacy; and successful study or preparation methodologies. Proposals focusing on other relevant aspects of the bar exam are also welcomed.

To be fundable, projects must:

  • Have a duration of 12‒24 months and seek funding in the amount of $150,000‒$300,000
  • Have a clear research design, using appropriate methodologies  

 

In light of the launch of Helix Bar Review, Inc. (“Helix”) a non-profit affiliate of AccessLex Institute, applicants may not utilize AccessLex grant funds to pay for competitor commercial bar preparation programs or materials. To the extent applicants include non-Helix programs and materials as part of research design, applicants are advised to (1) utilize comparable Helix offerings – which will be provided on an in-kind (non-cash) basis, or (2) seek alternate funding for research components requiring use of non-Helix programs or materials.

More information about Helix is available here: HelixBarReview.org.

If you have specific questions regarding any part of the application process, please direct any specific questions regarding this to Grants@accesslex.org.
