CA licensed attorneys - Themis or Barbri? I’ve been practicing a few years and my firm is covering costs. I used Barbri for my state’s bar back in 2017 and passed but thought it caused undue stress with the damn progress tracker. Looking for pros and cons from others who have used either more recently. TIA!

I did Themis. They publish their pass rates which are in the 90s if you finish 75% of the course. A ton of people I know also did Themis and they all passed, except one person who didn’t even do half the course. Pros are the cost (not an issue for you) and the videos are broken into much shorter segments. I’m sure a lot of the other stuff (progress tracker, personal representatives at the prep program to talk to) are the same. Personally if someone is paying for it themselves I see no reason to do Barbri at all. I think if your firm direct bills Themis you can get a free iPad if they’re still doing that. Themis also doesn’t make you return the books like Barbri does

Class of 2019 here. Everybody I know who used Barbri and made it to 90% passed, myself included. Haven’t used Themis but just my two cents, I like Barbri’s progress tracker and recommend the same to others. If you hit that 90%, you can confidently walk out of the exam.

I made it to 90% and was very certain I failed walking out, but I know statistics were on my side. A lot of the self-doubt probably came from regretting working too much too close to the exam and playing catch-up the entire time. I’m hoping not to repeat that scenario again.

No time for either. Use Adaptibar, baressays.com and Brian Hahn magic sheets.

They’re both good. I did Barbri but would have done Themis if I had to pay myself. I know more than one person who went with Themis simply for a free iPad they were offering at the time and they liked it and passed. I think both may still offer a free MPRE course, so maybe sign up for at least the Themis one just to take a look and see if the format speaks to you over Barbri? I know Barbri does lean on sheer terror as motivation but you’ve done it before and know what you’re in for, so I’d certainly be open to Themis in your position.
