As we saw in the last post, the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) is just one of three parts of the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE). Let’s start with some basics about the MBE.
Is the bar exam hard? And which state has the hardest bar exam? These are questions law students frequently ask. Until a few years ago, there were definitely states that were known for harder bar exams, and states that were known for easier bar exams.
The Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) is a standardized two-day exam created by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) that allows for admission to become a lawyer into the states that accept this exam. It is offered twice per year on the last Tuesday and Wednesday of February and July. It is made up of three sections tested across two days.
It’s every law student’s worst nightmare. Failing the bar exam. After months of studying, you learn you’ll have to do it all again. So many questions may be running through your mind – what happens if I fail the bar exam? How do I cope with failing the bar exam? Can I still get a job? Do I have to do this all over again?
When non-lawyers and even law students speak of the Bar Exam, it’s usually something that seems shrouded in mystery. But we are here to shed some light on that mystery. In its simplest form, the Bar Exam is the standardized test that allows you to be admitted to practice law in your state after you graduate law school. But it is much more than that. The Bar Exam will test your patience, time management skills, active memorization skills, and ability to deal with a lot of information you are uncomfortable with and are never truly certain about. This test will be unlike any you have taken before, including in law school. But as long as you have a plan of action and you put in the work, you will be fine.
