A New Bar Exam Study Game: "Passing the Bar"

Touro Law Center alum Caryn Pincus (Class of 2006) has created a new board game to help those studying for the Bar Exam (and really anyone studying the Multistate Bar Exam practice areas). The game is called "Passing the Bar" and it is receiving national exposure.

Caryn is licensed to practice law in New York, New Jersey, and Florida. She graduated cum laude and received CALI Awards for Academic Excellence in Contracts II and Disability Law. She interned with the New York Appellate Division, First Department, the Suffolk County Attorney's Office, and Nassau-Suffolk Law Services. After graduation, she worked at a matrimonial and criminal law firm and subsequently with a commercial litigation firm.

Passing the Bar includes hundreds of flashcards on Multistate Bar Exam and legal trivia questions which players answer as they role the die and move their game pieces around the board to be the first person to reach the Admission Ceremony and get sworn in. Prior to being sworn in, however, a player must answer three professional responsibility questions. Additional flashcards may be purchased separately. The game looks like a lot of fun and a great addition to the more traditional ways to study for the Bar Exam.
