  • The New Baby Bar MBE-Only Format

    The New Baby Bar MBE-Only Format

    The First Year Law Students' Exam (the Baby Bar) format is changing drastically. No more essays, only MBE questions on contracts, criminal law, and torts. The California State Bar says this will make the exam more accessible and efficient. But don't be fooled, this is not a walk in the park. Many experts say this will make the exam harder and more biased. The change may happen in June 2024 or Oct. 2024, depending on the approval of the scoring method. Don't wait until the last minute, start studying now. Fleming's Fundamentals of Law can help you prepare for the Baby Bar with our proven methods and materials.

  • Fleming's Edge Extended Bar Review for the Working Examinee. lawprepare.com
    September 26, 2022

    It Is Never Too Early to Start Studying for the Bar Exam

    Fleming's Edge Extended Bar Review

    There are actually three steps to becoming a lawyer:

    1. Go to law school and build a strong foundation;
    2. Study for the bar approximately 500+ hours; and
    3. Take and pass the bar exam.

    Students want to go from step 1 to step 3. But that is not a recipe for success. Students – or graduates – MUST engage in step 2 if they want to be successful on the bar exam.

    But where are you going to find 500+ hours? Usually, you have about 8-10 weeks after graduation and before the bar exam. That means you would need to be able to spend 50-60 hours a week for that entire time to adequately prepare to take the bar. Do you have a job? A family? The time? Is that at all realistic for a working adult? If you are reading this and thinking that you simply cannot devote that kind of time, Fleming’s has the answer for you: the Long Term Bar Preparation Program that allows you to start much earlier and spread out that substantial workload over approximately six months.

  • Professional Responsibility: Broadly Tested on the California Bar Exam

    Professional Responsibility: Broadly Tested on the California Bar Exam

    Professional Responsibility is tested heavily on the California Bar Exam. You might find PR the subject matter of its own essay question. You might find it as a crossover question with another doctrinal subject. You might find it a part of or the whole topic on a performance exam. And, you might find it in multiple places in the same bar exam!

    So, be on the lookout! Just because you passed the MPRE does not mean that you have seen the last of PR issues.
