Helix Bar Review by AccessLex Announces Release of Free Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) Course

AccessLex Bar Success


In October 2021, AccessLex Institute proudly launched Helix Bar Review by AccessLexSM, the first and only national nonprofit bar prep program. Created to provide affordable, best-in-class bar review to the tens of thousands of aspiring lawyers who take the bar exam each year, Helix has added Helix MPRESM to its growing list of no cost, low cost, and no profit offerings.

Entirely free and entirely online, Helix MPRESM is built for the most effective and efficient study of Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam content areas, which are focused on the established standards for the professional conduct of lawyers. This comprehensive course includes a 12-section outline, topic-specific videos, flashcards, multiple-choice questions with answers and explanations, quizzes and simulated practice exams ― plus, an MPRE Guide, study schedules and the Helix Game Center.

In addition, as part of its ongoing commitment to sustaining a collaborative approach to program development, Helix has also formed its inaugural Advisory Committee. This committee will provide targeted assessment and ongoing feedback on various Helix offerings, including Helix UBESM, Helix MBESM, and the Company’s Ask EDNA!® bar success and student success content.

The 2022 Helix Advisory Committee includes:

  • Katie Beck, Director of Student Affairs, Indiana University Maurer School of Law
  • Afton Cavanaugh, Assistant Dean for Law Success, St. Mary’s University School of Law
  • Keri Foster, Adjunct Professor and Director of Academic Support and Bar Preparation, Howard University School of Law
