President, BARBRI Law Preview

Don Macaulay

Don Macaulay is a serial entrepreneur who believes that things worth doing should be done right – and he walks the talk. Since graduating from law school, he founded, built and sold several game-changers in the legal education field: LawBooksForLess, the largest online independent law school bookstore in the nation; AdmissionsDean, an online social network for law school applicants; and Law Preview, the country’s largest law school prep course and now a part of BARBRI. Don combines an entrepreneurial spirit with an exceptional level of legal education savvy and unwavering passion for helping students succeed before and during law school.

Don is known for his integrity, approachability and commitment to helping others, and is seen as a mentor to many of today’s top lawyers. In addition to his position at BARBRI, he volunteers as executive director for the Pipeline to Practice Foundation, a non-profit organization he founded to help diverse law students and early-stage attorneys excel academically and professionally. Before founding his companies, Don was an associate at Rogers & Wells (now Clifford Chance US LLP) where he specialized in antitrust and securities litigation.  He graduated Albany Law School in 1995 where he was a member of the Albany Law Review and the Justinian Society.

When Don is home in the Boston area his life is all about the boat, the beach, learning to cook and nurturing his kids’ entrepreneurial spirit, while simultaneously making friends, family and strangers laugh really hard. An example of nurturing success is his son’s pina colada stand (instagram @FinnaColada) that racks it in every summer weekend.
