September 2020 Uniform Bar Exam

Issues Ripe For Testing: September  2020 Uniform Bar Exam

Issues Ripe For Testing On the September 2020 Uniform Bar Exam

Are you starting to prepare for the September 2020 Uniform Bar Exam? Are you curious as to what issues might appear on the September 2020 Uniform Bar Exam? We have taken a close look at the trends on the MEEs and MPTs and created our list of issues that are ripe for testing on the September 9-10, 2020 bar exam. Please read below for more information for issues that are ripe for testing on the essays and suggested MPTs to review.

Disclaimer: In lieu of our traditional predictions blog post, we will be providing issues that are ripe for testing for each subject. You should NOT solely rely on these issues that are ripe for testing when you study! All subjects and all issues are fair game for the exam. This is just our educated guess on what issues are ripe for testing on the exam, which we do for fun! Sometimes we are right. Sometimes we are not! Please review our free MEE guide for more detail on some of the highly tested topics and be careful not to ignore any subject! It is imperative that you review at least seven to nine essays per subject to familiarize yourself with a diverse range of issues that have appeared on past exams.

Note: The National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) typically administers two bar exams each year (in February and July), but in light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the NCBE is administering a total of five bar exams this year, which means that it is highly likely that the written portion of the September 9-10, 2020 bar exam (and the ones to follow this year) will be more unpredictable, and at a minimum, at least as challenging as the July 2020 Uniform Bar Exam.
