Potential Changes to Traditional Bar Exam on the Horizon
Civil Procedure, that dreaded first year topic, could become the seventh topic tested on the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE). Currently, the MBE is a multiple choice test on torts, evidence, constitutional law, criminal law, contracts, and real property. Erica Moeser, the president of the National Conference of Bar Examiners, reported the idea to add Civil Procedure to the 200 question test has been met with enthusiasm.
In related news, the ABA section on legal education is collaborating with states’ chief justices to create and administer a uniform bar exam – one test given in all jurisdictions.
