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.
