The July 2013 Bar Exam: The MEE and UBE

Posted in Uncategorized on August 21, 2013 by barprofs

Please look at our new website and MEE/UBE Programs at barprofessors.com

More and more states are turning towards the MEE or UBE Programs conducted by the National Conference of Bar
Examiners for their state’s bar examination.

The National Conference of Bar Examiners offers six 30-minute questions per administration. The state elects which of the six questions they wish to use. Jurisdictions that administer the UBE use all six MEE questions as part of their bar examinations. The UBE also has 2 MPTs.

The Multistate Essay Examination (MEE) is given in 30 jurisdictions now. Minnesota is the newest state to use the MEE starting in February 2014. States that have the MEE include Arkansas, Connecticut, Washington, D.C., Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Mississippi, New Mexico, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

The Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) is given in 13 jurisdictions now. Minnesota and New Hampshire are the newest states to use UBE starting in February 2014. States that have the UBE are Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming.

Minnesota is listed as both a MEE and UBE state.

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 essay scores.

The July 2013 Bar Exam: Illinois and Changes in the Passing Scores

Posted in Uncategorized on August 19, 2013 by barprofs

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

Previously, Illinois had announced that there would be a change in the minimum passing score to take effect in two stages, for July 2013 and for July 2015 bar exam scores. Fortunately, for those taking the July 2013 bar exam for Illinois, the board of admissions has decided not to change the minimum passing score for July 2013. The board of admissions had earlier announced that effective July 2013, the minimum passing score would be a combined written and MBE score of 268.

Right now, the minimum passing score is a combined written and MBE score of 264 and will stay that way until July 2015.

Instead, beginning with the July 2015 bar exam, the minimum passing score will be a combined written and MBE score of 272, an increase of 8 points.

The July 2013 Bar Exam: The Florida Essays and the New Subjects on the Florida Bar Exam

Posted in Uncategorized on August 16, 2013 by barprofs

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

For the July 2013 bar exam, I had my students in Florida review the new subjects on the bar exam. We knew that since the Florida Bar Examiners did not test any new subjects in February, the likelihood of one of the new subjects being tested was possible. We went over secured transactions, commercial paper, dependency and juvenile delinquency.

We finally hit pay dirt in July when the Florida Bar Examiners ended up testing secured transactions in the first essay, as part of a cross-over question. It was at the tail end of a long common law contracts essay. The secured transactions issue concerned equipment and who had priority between the bank and the lender. It was a pretty straight forward issue and, hopefully, those in Florida recognized the issue and answered it.

I’ve been told that the Florida results will be coming out September 23rd.
