During all of this self-isolation, I keep seeing people on facebook or twitter post about being bored ,or having extra time. They ask me what I'm doing to pass the time. These are not people who have had to transition everything to an online format, or worry about their students and impending delayed bar exams. Nor are any of these people law students, who are learning to take classes and exams online.
My answer is, when I have a few spare moments, I'm writing a book! Or trying. I have two lovely co-authors, and we are all trying to keep each other on task.
So, on that note, we are looking for past MEEs, MPTs, and bar exam stories. Here is our little announcement:
Attention Attorneys! Especially those of you that have taken the bar exam since 2011! We are looking for your past Multistate Exam Essays (MEE) and Multistate Performance Tests (MPTs) as well as any bar exam stories.
We are working on The Ultimate UBE Guide, to be published by Wolters Kluwer in late 2020, early 2021. If you failed a bar exam, and have those MEEs or MPTs, we want them! You will be given a $25 Amazon Gift Card for any accepted MEE or MPT. If we accept more than one of your essays, you will be given multiple gift cards. MEEs and MPTs should be from the Feb 2017 to Feb 2020 Bar Exams. MEEs and MPTs must have been actually written for the bar exam and have a score.
Or, do you have a crazy story? Something that you overcame while taking the bar exam? Did you fail and pass on a second try? Did you get sick the night before and still do ok? If so, tell us your story, and get a $10 Amazon Gift card for every accepted story. Stories must come from a bar 2011 to present.
All stories. MEEs and MPTs will be anonymous.
To submit essays, MPTs, stories, or to ask any questions, please contact ultimateUBEguide@gmail.com
