    The New MBE-Centric California Baby Bar

    We plan to run our Baby Bar Workshop the same as we have done in the past. Our system is tried and true - just ask our previous students. Students will be assigned MBE homework just as they will be assigned essay homework. Trust me, if you can write a solid essay the way we teach you to write, you can apply that thought process to the MBE. This stuff goes hand in hand.

    Another Fleming's Student Aces the Baby Bar!

    We are delighted to share that another one of our students has aced the Baby Bar exam with an outstanding score! This is a remarkable achievement, especially considering the low pass rate of this difficult exam. Our student scored a 95 out of 100, which is well above the average score of 70. This score also puts them among the top performers in the state of California, as published by the California Bar! Congratulations, Shawn!

    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.

  • 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.

    Jill's Law School Success Story

    I attribute my success to Fleming’s. I practiced writing exams, even before I knew the rules (I just read the Fleming’s model answer first, wrote down the rules, and practiced straight application and analysis). I watched Jeff’s lectures on the e-Learning website and listened to them over and over, even through the night.

    Surviving Your First Year of Law School

    Put simply, you survive your first year through the law school process, which requires two separate and distinct steps. Step 1 - You have to learn the law. Step 2 - You have to learn how to apply the law to law school exams in a time-driven testing environment. One without the other will not achieve your law school objectives.
