2016 Legal Ethics Bar Questions and Answers

This demons­tra­ti­on pre­pa­ra­ti­on test gives you prac­ti­ce in the types of ques­ti­ons inclu­ded in the mul­ti-sta­te bar exam regar­ding cri­mi­nal law and cri­mi­nal pro­ce­du­re. This is the usu­al mul­ti­ple-choice for­mat with four pos­si­ble ans­wers. You need to choo­se the best ans­wer of the four. This 32-ques­ti­on pre­pa­ra­ti­on test focu­ses on civil pro­ce­du­re law. This topic is a new addi­ti­on to the topics cove­r­ed on the MBE. The Natio­nal Con­fe­rence of Bar Exami­ners advi­ses you to ans­wer ques­ti­ons of civil pro­ce­du­re law accord­ing to the reco­gni­zed basic princi­ples of law. Con­tains all 312 con­sti­tu­tio­nal ques­ti­ons (a mix of simu­la­ted and for­mal ques­ti­ons from pre­vious reviews). If you make a mista­ke, we will show you this ques­ti­on again until you ans­wer it cor­rect­ly. This test deals with the sub­ject of evi­dence and con­tains 207 offi­cial MBE ques­ti­ons from past exams. All ques­ti­ons about evi­dence must be ans­we­red in accordance with the Federal Rules of Evi­dence as they are cur­r­ent­ly in for­ce. Bar­Pre­pHe­ro Pre­mi­um gives you access to all the offi­cial bar exam ques­ti­ons that have alrea­dy been published.

The offi­cial ques­ti­ons writ­ten by the Natio­nal Con­fe­rence of Bar Exami­ners (creator of the mul­ti-sta­te bar exam) are far supe­ri­or to the ques­ti­ons inven­ted by busi­ness cour­ses, and stu­dents often see their scores impro­ve signi­fi­cant­ly after using publis­hed MBE ques­ti­ons. NOTE: All ques­ti­ons about evi­dence must be ans­we­red in accordance with the Federal Rules of Evi­dence as they are cur­r­ent­ly in effect. About a quar­ter of the evi­dence ques­ti­ons on the MBE will be based on Cate­go­ry I, a third on Cate­go­ry II, a quar­ter on Cate­go­ry V and the rest on Cate­go­ry III and IV. This test con­tains offi­cial ques­ti­ons on the law of civil pro­ce­du­re. App­li­cants must assu­me the app­li­ca­ti­on of (1) the app­li­ca­ble federal rules of civil pro­ce­du­re and (2) the sec­tions of Tit­le 28 of the United Sta­tes Code rela­ting to juris­dic­tion, loca­ti­on and trans­fer. This prac­ti­cal exam con­sists of 100 offi­cial ques­ti­ons publis­hed by the NCBE and publis­hed in pre­vious­ly mana­ged TEMEs. Does not con­tain ques­ti­ons about the law of civil pro­ce­du­re. The pur­po­se of this exam is to fami­lia­ri­ze you with the for­mat and natu­re of MBE ques­ti­ons. This test inclu­des 212 for­mal con­sti­tu­tio­nal ques­ti­ons. The terms “con­sti­tu­ti­on”, “con­sti­tu­tio­nal” and “uncon­sti­tu­tio­nal” refer to the Federal Con­sti­tu­ti­on, unless other­wi­se specified.

In addi­ti­on to the real-world MBE ques­ti­ons from pre­vious exams, you can real­ly get the most out of both worlds and avoid sur­pri­ses on exam day. This 200-ques­ti­on review simu­la­tes the actu­al MBE and inclu­des a mix of ques­ti­ons from our other tests on the fol­lowing topics: con­tracts, torts, con­sti­tu­tio­nal law, cri­mi­nal law and pro­ce­du­res, evi­dence, real esta­te, and civil pro­ce­du­re law. You are allo­wed to skip ques­ti­ons, but unli­ke other prac­ti­ce tests, this test simu­la­tor does not pro­vi­de any clues or explana­ti­ons. Our sixth pre­pa­ra­ti­on test inclu­des 100 ques­ti­ons based on the types of ques­ti­ons on the offi­cial MBE. All MPT tests that will be car­ri­ed out in Febru­a­ry and July 2021, as well as the cor­re­spon­ding point she­ets (descri­be the fac­tu­al and legal points inclu­ded in the func­tions of the lawy­er to be per­for­med, descri­be the pro­blems and pos­si­ble points that could be addres­sed by a can­di­da­te). 15 demons­tra­ti­on ques­ti­ons on con­tract law. The revi­sed Arti­cles 1 and 2 of the Uni­form Com­mer­cial Code app­ly, whe­re app­li­ca­ble, to traders/the sale of goods. First of all, let me say that you are gre­at, and I real­ly appre­cia­te your bar pre­pa­ra­ti­on site. I am cur­r­ent­ly a para­le­gal stu­dent and I always wan­ted to know how I would fare in the Mul­ti Choice Bar sec­tion. Their web­site gave me this oppor­tu­ni­ty, and I‘m plea­s­ant­ly sur­pri­sed by most of my test results (70s – 90s) depen­ding on whe­ther or not I had a cour­se in a par­ti­cu­lar test area. Even wrong ans­wers beco­me lear­ning tools becau­se of their high­ly infor­ma­ti­ve and beau­ti­ful­ly detail­ed ans­wer sections.

I recom­men­ded your web­site to a lawy­er who moved here from ano­t­her sta­te and is now pre­pa­ring for the Mary­land bar exam. I can‘t thank you enough for your efforts in crea­ting your web­site, I‘m very hap­py with the level of con­fi­dence I‘ve found in mys­elf by get­ting the right num­ber of ans­wers like I‘ve done so far. I‘ve always wan­ted to know, and you‘re the chal­len­ge. Thank you, and plea­se con­ti­nue to ans­wer ques­ti­ons. Sin­ce­rely, Bill Ben­nett ~ Wil­liam Ben­nett, Mary­land I have writ­ten several books on the pre­pa­ra­ti­on of bars in my “In-Brief” seri­es, which is cur­r­ent­ly sel­ling on Ama­zon. While wri­ting the books, I recei­ved advice from a psy­cho­lo­gist who told me that sto­ries are easier to remem­ber than peri­ods. So, for each bar the­me tes­ted, I added a case that reflects a sto­ry about the rule. Bar­Pre­pHe­ro is the only tes­ting site I‘ve been invol­ved in that exp­lains vir­tual­ly all of its ans­wers with a rela­ted case and, as such, pro­vi­des a mecha­nism to main­tain the rules through sto­ries. Five stars in my book! ~ Glenn Riser, Juris Doc­tor Gra­dua­ted from Flo­ri­da Coas­tal School of Law The ques­ti­ons on this test are based on a mix of most of the seven are­as of the offi­cial MBE. This demons­tra­ti­on pre­pa­ra­ti­on test inclu­des 15 simu­la­ted ques­ti­ons to fami­lia­ri­ze you with the types of con­sti­tu­tio­nal ques­ti­ons that may ari­se on the MBE.

About two-thirds of the civil pro­ce­du­re ques­ti­ons on the MBE will be based on cate­go­ries I, III and V, and about a third on the other cate­go­ries — II, IV, VI and VII. This prac­ti­cal test com­bi­nes mate­ri­al from most of the seven are­as of law cove­r­ed by the MBE. It should be simi­lar to the offi­cial MBE. This is the prac­ti­cal test for tort. Ques­ti­ons rela­ting to the bar exami­na­ti­on should be ans­we­red in accordance with the princi­ples of gene­ral applicability.

About half of the cri­mi­nal and pro­ce­du­ral issu­es rela­ted to the MBE will be based on cate­go­ry V and about half on the other cate­go­ries – I, II, III and IV. Bar­Pre­pHe­ro Pre­mi­um gives you access to over 500 prac­ti­cal MBE exam-type ques­ti­ons. The­se were care­ful­ly deve­lo­ped by our rese­ar­chers to ensu­re that they cove­r­ed legal are­as whe­re we felt the ncbe‘s offi­cial issu­es were not suf­fi­ci­ent­ly detail­ed. This is the prac­ti­cal test for tort. The 217 offi­cial ques­ti­ons of the mul­ti-sta­te bar exam must be ans­we­red based on princi­ples of gene­ral applicability.
