Bar Exam Courses: The BarWrite® Difference
BarWrite®’s short bar exam courses are tightly targeted to the needs of foreign-educated lawyers and retakers. These bar prep courses teach students how to raise their scores on the three component tests of the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE). That is, the MPT, the essays and the MBE. See below for what the Uniform Bar Exam is.
The Multistate Performance Test (MPT) component of the bar exam is twenty per cent of the UBE grade. The MPT is one of our specialties. Each course including the MPT features the Gallagher/BarWrite MPT Systems, and students receive Dr. Mary Campbell Gallagher’s best-selling study guide Perform Your Best on the Bar Exam Performance Test (MPT).
BarWrite®’s courses for the UBE are not just accelerated or rescheduled versions of courses designed for American JDs taking the exam for the first time. Nor are they substitutes for full bar review courses. These BarWrite® bar review courses are supplemental courses aiming to teach foreign-trained lawyers and retakers how to conquer the bar exam.

What is the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE)?
The three components of the Uniform Bar Exam are as follows. (i) The Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) is a full-day, 200-question, multiple-choice test on seven legal fields. These are Contracts and UCC Article 2, Torts, Federal Civil Procedure, Real Property, Evidence, Constitutional Law, and Criminal Law and Procedure. (ii) The Multistate Essay Exam (MEE) is six essay questions that the candidate answers within three hours. In addition to the seven MBE subjects, MEE essay subjects may come from Family Law and Trusts and Decedents’ Estates. They may also come from Secured Transactions (UCC Article 9), Agency and Partnership, and Conflicts of Laws.
(iii) The two Multistate Performance Test (MPT) tasks are simulations of real practice tasks in a law office. The candidate performs two tasks within 180 minutes. Both the MPT and the MEE may include issues of Professional Responsibility. Dr. Gallagher is the author of Perform Your Best on the Bar Exam Performance Test (MPT). It presents Dr. Gallagher’s unique system for the MPT, including the MPT-Matrix. It is the only study guide containing analyses of NCBE Multistate Performance Test tasks available on the market.
