Civil Procedure on the MBE

Civil Procedure will begin being tested on the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) this winter.  Out of the 200 question MBE, 27 questions will be devoted to Civil Procedure.  While Civil Procedure is a required course, not every Professor covers the same FRCPs in their classes.  Thus, it is a good idea for students to take a look at the specific content that will be tested.  The National Conference of Bar Examiners has updated the subject matter outline so that the Civil Procedure content being tested is consistent for the Multistate Essay Exam and the Multistate Bar Exam.  You can find the content outline at the National Conference of Bar Examiners webpage

Additionally, if you or your students are anxious to see what these questions will look like, you can access sample Civil Procedure MBE questions and use them to practice.  So, if issue preclusion, standards of review, or jurisdiction are not your strengths, take a closer look at these resources.
