Tarek Fadel and Donna Heidkamp will receive the Outstanding Young Alumnus/Alumna Awards at the 2014 Alumni Awards at 11:30 am on Friday, April 25, 2014 in the Hermann Hall Ballroom.
While studying for the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) in 2003, Fadel (LAW ’03) decided to withdraw from the exam and develop a better way for future attorneys to study. Fadel founded AdaptiGroup LLC. and, in 2004, launched a simulator and prep program that helps better prepare law students for the MBE.
