Major, Lindsey & Africa (MLA), the world’s leading legal search firm, announced today its new partnership with BARBRI, the global leader in bar exam prep and legal education. The two organizations will work together to provide law students with content and programming offering practical, real-world guidance on beginning and navigating their legal careers.
Through this partnership, law school students will have access to exclusive content developed by Major, Lindsey & Africa and BARBRI. Content will include access to live webinars such as “10 Questions to Ask When Selecting a Practice Area” and “Navigating and Preparing for OCI,” as well as videos to help students navigate their job search, explore various legal career options, and create their best resume.
“We are very excited about working with BARBRI to provide law students much needed practical guidance on starting their legal careers,” said Eliza Stoker, executive director of MLA’s Associate Practice Group. “Finding employment after law school for the first time is a big step and having the tools to find the right fit is imperative to starting a legal career on the right foot. This initiative will be a building block in establishing a career-long relationship with MLA for Life.”
“We pride ourselves in helping law students every step of The BARBRI Way,” said Mike Sims, BARBRI President. “For us, that goes beyond helping students achieve the best grades in law school and passing the bar exam. The content from this relationship will help give every student access to additional knowledge and skills necessary to gain employment and make their impact on the world.”
