Highly Tested Michigan Bar Exam Topics

Part 1

In this video, we cover the highly tested topics in the following five subjects on the Michigan Bar Exam:

  • Criminal Law
  • Criminal Procedure
  • Contracts
  • Sales
  • Torts

Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure are tested in a semi-predictable way on virtually every Michigan Bar Exam.

Sales and Torts are frequently tested though will not necessarily appear on the essay portion of every Michigan bar exam (though they will appear on the MBE).

Part 2

In Part 2 of this video series, we cover the highly tested topics in the following five subjects on the Michigan Bar Exam:

  • Evidence
  • Constitutional Law
  • Real Property
  • Civil Procedure
  • Domestic Relations (Family Law)

Each of these five subjects is regularly tested on the Michigan Bar Exam (and in fact, is tested virtually every exam). The most predictable of the subjects above are Real Property, Civil Procedure, and Domestic Relations. Evidence has been one of the trickier subjects tested lately. Constitutional Law is sometimes predictable (and will test an issue like free speech or the dormant commerce clause) but is sometimes out of left field. (We reveal what to do if you see a strange Constitutional Law question in the video below!)
