Bar Exam Format

The New York bar examination consists of three parts: The Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), the New York local section, and the Multistate Performance Test (MPT). The New York local section consists of 5 essay questions and 50 multiple choice questions prepared by the New York State Board of Law Examiners.

New York Local Section

The New York Local section consists of 2 sessions: The AM session consists of 3 essay questions and 50 multiple-choice questions (3 hours and 15 minutes), and the PM session consists of 2 essay questions and 1 MPT (3 hours)

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.

Multistate Performance Test (MPT)

The MPT is designed to assess the examinee’s ability to use fundamental lawyering skills in a realistic situation. Each examinee receives a “File” of source documents and a “Library” of cases, statutes, and rules. Each MPT question is designed to be answered within 90 minutes. It provides all necessary materials to answer the question and does not require the applicant to use any state-specific law.

I would absolutely recommend the Themis Bar review course!! There were so many benefits of using Themis over the competitors. Themis had amazing online lectures, precise and condensed outlines, flexible study plans and Themis is half the cost of other Bar review programs. The flexible study plans were perfect for me because I worked while I was preparing for the Bar; I was able to stay on track without feeling overwhelmed. Most importantly, Themis thoroughly prepared me for the Bar and I passed as a first time test-taker.
