The July 2013 Bar Exam: The Trouble with the MBE

Posted in Uncategorized on May 31, 2013 by barprofs

Please look at our new website and new MBE Program at barprofessors.com

The MBE test is hard. No one can dispute that. Students are often competitive with the written essay portion of the exam, but bomb out on the MBE.

We, at Bar Professors, know you are disappointed with your MBE results. However, taking the MBE again will call for a change in approach, strategy and preparation to pass. Our advice to you is not to give up but to try a new approach with Bar Professors. Our new cross training approach with concentration on factual distinctions in the MBE fact pattern versus the traditional method of legal extraction has increased many MBE repeat takers scores by as much as 20%. Give yourself a fighting chance to pass the bar exam in your state by improving your MBE score. Whether you are from North Carolina, Illinois, Wisconsin or any other state, Bar Professors can help you improve your MBE score.

The July 2013 Bar Exam: The Florida Bar Exam’s New Tested Subjects

Posted in Uncategorized on May 30, 2013 by barprofs

Please look at our new website and new MBE Program at barprofessors.com

In prior blogs, we discussed the new tested subjects on the Florida bar exam effective February 2013. For the February 2013 bar exam, I had my students in Florida review the new subjects on the bar exam. We went over secured transactions, commercial paper, dependency and juvenile delinquency. Yet, none of those subjects were tested on the bar exam (although dependency may have been a small issue in the family law essay. We must continue to prepare for these subjects when facing the July 2013 bar exam.

The main concern for the students I talked to was Article 3 and Article 9 of the UCC. Unfortunately, many students did not take the two subjects during law school and must learn it for the first time.. Additionally, the repeat bar taker did not learn the subject through their bar review course and are now facing the prospect that they will have to learn the two subjects, along with prepping to take the Florida bar exam again. Bar Professors can help you learn these new subjects.

The July 2013 Bar Exam: Second Career and Older Students Facing the Bar Exam

Posted in Uncategorized on May 29, 2013 by barprofs

Please look at our new website and new MBE Program at barprofessors.com

We have seen many older students who have decided to go back to law school as a second career. Sometimes it seems like their fellow students, who are younger than they are, seem to pick up the material faster, despite the younger students’ often careless attitudes towards studying.

The older student finishes law school, but despite studying hard, has trouble picking up the tactics and strategies to pass the bar exam.

Statistics show that older students and students coming from a second career score lower on the bar exam than the average law student. There are many theories for this disparity, but it’s not that the older student doesn’t know the material. The difference is how the older student applies the material in a lawyer-like fashion when he/she has spent time at another career. As we know, legal writing is much different than writing for a newspaper or writing a report for your previous job.

Bar Professors has worked with many older students who are pursuing a second career as a lawyer but are having trouble passing the bar exam. We understand your problems and have the solution to help you pass the bar exam.

The February 2013 Bar Exam Results: The UBE/MEE Exam Analysis

Posted in Uncategorized on May 28, 2013 by barprofs

Please look at our new website and new MBE Program at barprofessors.com

The Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) consists of six 30-minute questions and 2 Multiple Performance Tests (MPT). States that have the UBE are Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. The MEE omits the 2 MPT tests, but has nine 30-minute questions. The Multistate Essay Examination (MEE) is given in 28 jurisdictions including Arkansas, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

For the February 2013 bar exam, the 6 MEE essays included property, contracts, constitutional law, agency and partnership, evidence and negotiable instruments.

For scoring, each essay and each MPT answer was worth 12 points, raw score. The average raw score per essay was:

Essay 1 – Property: 3.86 = 32%
Essay 2 – Contracts: 5.20 = 43%
Essay 3 – Const. Law: 6.27 = 52%
Essay 4 – Agency/Partnership: 6.65 = 55%
Essay 5 – Evidence: 4.98 = 42%
Essay 6 – Neg. Instr,: 4.05 = 34%
MPT 1 – Martel: 5.27 = 44%
MPT 2 – Fox: 6.21 = 52%

Looking at the essays, it is clear that Property and Negotiable Instruments were the hardest essays. The easiest, Agency/Partnership and Constitutional Law.

For the MPT, the Fox assignment was clearly the easier of the two MPTs.

Bar Professors works with repeat bar takers who have trouble passing the UBE/MEE. Bar Professors has developed a rigorous program for repeat bar takers, addressing the writing techniques of short answer essays of the Multistate Essay Examination (MEE) and the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) with critical feedback. This feedback is important for the repeat bar takers’ overall improvement. Bar Professors provides one-on-one substantive lectures on all subjects with practice questions and critiques, and methods and procedures to improve your essay scores.
