You Pass Guarantee

*The “You Pass Guarantee” contains a modification related to when Maryland offers the UNIFORM BAR EXAM (UBE) - for the first time ONLY.

Please review the entire Guarantee carefully.

If you enroll in Shemer LIVE In-Class or Shemer LIVE Online and satisfy the Retake Conditions listed below, but do not pass the first Maryland General Bar Exam given after the course for which you enrolled, you are entitled to retake Shemer LIVE In-Class or Shemer LIVE Online in preparation for the next Maryland General Bar Exam 100% FREE OF CHARGE. *A new set of Shemer Bar Review Blue Books is NOT included with your free retake.

*FOR FEBRUARY 2019 COURSE ONLY:  The Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) is announced to be given in Maryland in July 2019 and brings substantial changes to the Maryland General Bar Exam - new subjects, new essays, new licensing fees. As a result, students using their Shemer retake for the July 2019 exam ONLY will be charged a one-time UBE surcharge - not to exceed $795 - which will include ALL NEW SBR BLUE BOOKS, all added classes and all the other features and benefits of Shemer LIVE In-Class or Shemer LIVE Online. (If Maryland defers the first offering of the UBE to a later date, this paragraph’s surcharge will apply to the SBR course offered immediately before Maryland’s first UBE offering.)


Retake Conditions

The following conditions must be satisfied for any retake according to the terms above: 

  1. CLASS:  You attended all but FOUR (4) classes. “Attended” means you arrived and signed the Attendance Sheet or signed-on to the class webinar (for students attending online) timely and remained until class ended.

  2. SMALL GROUP ESSAY WORKSHOPS [SGEW]: You attended all but ONE (1) of your assigned SGEWs. “Attended” means you arrived timely, in-person or online as applicable, and timely submitted for feedback your answer(s) to any and all SGEW essay questions (NOT regular practice essays) assigned for the SGEW on the Study Schedule.

  3. MPT SUBMISSIONS:  You timely submitted answers to every MPT question assigned to be turned in for written feedback as noted on the Study Schedule.

  4. PRACTICE TESTS: You completed every “Practice Test” on the date noted on the Study Schedule or within three (3) days of that date. For the Practice Tests, MBE 1 and MBE 2, you also submitted your scores using the on-line grading feature within (3) days after the date of the practice test. For In-Class students, if you are unable to physically attend a given practice test, you may be granted permission to take the exam on your own.

  5. POST-RESULTS:  After exam results are posted by the Board, SBR will send instructions to your email address (from your account; you must keep it up to date) for you to request to retake the course. You must follow all instructions and provide everything requested by the deadlines stated in the email(s).

Reasons for not attending a required class, SGEW or practice test are not relevant to this Guarantee. Acquiescence in or even “approval” for missing a class, SGEW or practice test by any member of Shemer Bar Review is not relevant to this guarantee and is not a waiver of or exception to its requirements. The bottom line is you have to attend!
