UWorld Acquires Themis Bar Review to Expand Online Learning Offerings

With a track record of success in college readiness, accounting, finance, nursing, graduate, and medical verticals, UWorld joins forces with a fellow industry leader to help law students pass the bar exam.

DALLAS (July 21, 2020) – UWorld, a company trusted by more than 2 million students for high-stakes online learning tools, has acquired Themis Bar Review, a leading provider of online bar review courses that have helped nearly one hundred thousand law students prepare for the bar exam. The acquisition continues UWorld’s growth across industries and will bring significant value to the legal profession.

“Themis revolutionized bar prep by offering the first fully online bar review course in the country by using a unique combination of on-demand lectures segmented into 15-20 minute chapters, assessment questions, and final review outlines—all designed by bar review experts to improve retention and combat mental fatigue for students,” said Rick Duffy, CEO, and founder of Themis Bar Review. “Under the UWorld umbrella, we will maintain our unwavering commitment to developing only the highest-quality content and offering it to as many law students as possible.”

UWorld’s rapid adoption across content areas has been fueled by its dedication to deploying the most rigorous learning tools in the market. UWorld will apply the same approach to helping law students prepare for their bar exams. UWorld will bring various product enhancements and technology improvements to Themis Bar Review customers. In April, UWorld launched a state-of-the-art MBE QBank, written by an in-house team of experienced, successful attorneys and law professors. The Themis acquisition continues UWorld’s move into legal education and reinforces its commitment to bring the best education and test prep tools to all law students.

“Themis Bar Review appealed to UWorld because we share the same commitment to having a momentous impact on students’ exam outcomes,” said Chandra S. Pemmasani, M.D., UWorld’s founder and CEO. “Themis is a recognized and trusted brand among law students, and we will continue to earn that trust by helping students achieve their dreams.”
