Bar Exam Study Program

Need a place to study for the upcoming California Bar Exam in February 2024? Join our Bar Study Program to get access to our training room for a convenient and comfortable place to study.

We understand that you may not be from San Diego or have attended a local law school with access to their campus study spaces. Also, you just may want another study space option to get out of the house and away from the usual study spots! The San Diego Law Library has created this special Bar Exam Study Program to make space for students studying for the California Bar Exam. Our Legal Research Only Policy precludes studying your own materials rather than using the Law Library services and resources. This limited time program will allow future attorneys to use our facility while studying for the Bar Exam and using their own Bar preparation materials and resources.

Detailed information about the program:

  • The program is FREE.
  • Limited to 25 people to allow sufficient desk & chair space for registrants.
  • Study will only be allowed in the designated Training Room(s).
