Bar Exam Format

The Kentucky Bar Examination consists of 12 essays, to be divided between Kentucky essays and Multistate essays (Day 1), and the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE) (Day 2). The Kentucky Board of Bar Examiners may also replace three essays, either Kentucky, Multistate, or a combination of both, with a Multistate Performance Test (MPT). The exam is administered over two days in February and July each year during the last week of the month that includes a Tuesday and Wednesday.

Kentucky Essays

The essay portion consists of the Kentucky Essay Exam and the Multistate Essay Exam (MEE), comprising a total of 12 essays, 30 minutes each. Each of the 12 essay questions may cover one or more subjects. Additionally, the Kentucky Board of Bar Examiners may replace three essays, either Kentucky, MEE, or a combination of both, with a Multistate Performance Test (MPT). The Kentucky Office of Bar Admissions will notify examinees of the final exam format before their test administration. For a complete list of the Kentucky essay subjects, see Subjects Tested below.

Multistate Bar Exam (MBE)

The MBE consists of 200 multiple-choice questions that test the following areas: Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts and Sales, Criminal Law and Procedure, Evidence, Real Property, and Torts. Of the 200 questions, 175 are scored questions and 25 are unscored pre-test questions. The pre-test questions are indistinguishable from the scored questions so applicants are advised to answer all questions.

My constant dialogue with the Themis staff helped me avoid feeling overwhelmed and optimized my study time. Without the personalized support, quick response time and such a flexible/adaptable program, I would've been in heaps of trouble. I still cannot fathom why anyone would pay double or triple for an inferior product. Thanks Themis!
