Introduction to MBE/MPT
The course is focused directly towards driving student achievement on the bar exam by working to build critical exam skills. This course combines substantive review with multiple choice question deconstruction. The course can be taken for 2 credits covering Criminal Law, Torts, Contracts, Property and Civil Procedure. If the course is taken for 3 credits, the additional credit covers the remaining MBE subjects of Criminal Procedure, Evidence and Constitutional Law. Regardless of the number of credit hours, each subject is approached the same. Students review the substantive law that is most heavily tested in that subject on the bar. Students then take a quiz that will test their retention and analytical skills on that subject for homework. In the following class, students walk through how to attack the problems focusing on skills like process of elimination. This course has a pretest, a midterm and a final exam that serve as benchmarks and efficacy indicators throughout the course. The short term goal is to see increases in each subject of 20% with a long term goal of understanding of substance of, and approaches to, the MBE.
This upper-level course combines substantive review of bar-tested subjects with multiple choice question deconstruction.
