    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.

    How The Bar Exam Tests Your Fundamental Lawyering Skills

    For those who did not pass, it does not appear their results reflect a lack of legal knowledge. The vast majority of bar candidates who sit for the exam have an adequate command of the law. Rather, the test results for those who did not pass reflect a general lack of test-taking skills on the MBE and written portions of the exam.
