    This panel explores designing bar exam programs for LLM students with foreign law degrees.  With the recent opening of State Bar rules that allow foreign lawyers with an American LLM to take the bar exam, LLM programs must better prepare students seeking to take the bar exam.  There are multiple approaches that could be utilized by LLM programs, such as stand-alone programs, courses for credit, and teaching bar exam skills in LLM only classes.  This panel will explore these options and discuss what has been working for members of the panel.
