July 2018 MEE Predictions: Are you curious as to what might be tested on the July 2018 Multistate Essay Exam (MEE)? We are as well! We have created our own July 2018 MEE predictions. Below are the essay subjects that we think are coming up, primarily based on past MEE questions.

Update: This post is being updated with what, upon information and belief, was tested on the July 2018 MEE. We will update it again once the questions are available for review by the National Conference of Bar Examiners.

July 2018 MEE Predictions

While we are not always correct in our predictions, we are usually fairly close! See our February 2018 MEE predictions to see how we accurately guessed 5 of the 6 subjects tested as well as our July 2017 MEE predictions to see how we accurately predicted virtually all of the subjects.

Disclaimer: You should NOT solely rely on these predictions when you study! You should study all subjects when preparing for the MEE exam. All of the subjects are fair game.

We think you may see the following subjects on the July 2018 MEE.

1. Civil Procedure – NOT tested.

Civil Procedure remains the most highly tested subject on the MEE! Therefore, we think it is coming up! The Examiners did not test Civil Procedure in February 2017, but they did test it in July 2017 and February 2018. When Civil Procedure has been tested, it is usually tested consistently for at least several administrations. Note now that Civil Procedure has been added to the MBE portion of the test, we think it will be tested less frequently on the essay portion of the exam in upcoming administrations. However, we still think it will be tested this July. We think this last note is especially important – since Civil Procedure was added to the MBE in 2015, we think it will show up less and less on the MEE! 

2. Constitutional Law  Tested!

Constitutional Law has typically been tested every other exam since February 2012. As Constitutional Law was last tested in July 2017 we think it possible that it may be tested in July 2018. The Constitutional Law questions tend to be tricky, so make sure to review past questions carefully (e.g., in July 2017 the question tested the dormant commerce clause and sovereign immunity).

3. Corporations and LLCs Tested!

Corporations is also commonly tested on the MEE. Since February July 2011 the Examiners have generally tested Corporations every other administration. Corporations was not tested on the last two exams so it is ripe for testing! Don’t forget to review the rules pertaining to LLCs as the Examiners have tested this entity several times on past exams.  Many of the rules regarding LLCs overlap with corporations, but some of them do not!

4. Secured Transactions NOT tested.

We think that Secured Transactions might be coming up! In recent years it has become a more popular subject for testing. It was not tested on the last exam, so that makes it more likely for July. One commonly tested issue is priority, so take some time to review rules concerning the priority of different types of creditors.

5. Torts & Agency – NOT tested.

The Examiners often like to alternate between Contracts and Torts on the exam. As Contracts was tested on the February 2018 Exam, it is likely that Torts will appear on the July 2018 exam. We would not be surprised if Torts were tested in conjunction with Agency – this last happened in July 2013 and February 2015. Further, Agency was not tested on the February 2018 exam. So make sure to review both Torts as well as Agency!

6. Trusts (but also review Decedents’ Estates – see note below!) Tested!

Typically the Examiners take turns testing Decedents’ Estates and Trusts. Occasionally, they don’t test either of these subjects on the exam (as was the case in February 2018). Given that it was not tested on the last exam, it makes it more likely that one of these subjects will show up. Since February 2011, Wills and Trusts have been tested equally – five times. And the sixth time these subjects were tested, they appeared in a crossover essay. We don’t expect to seem these tested in a crossover essay again so soon. It is more likely you will see one of these subjects in a stand-alone essay. Thus, we suggest reviewing both of these subjects carefully.

Wild Card: Real Property Tested!

Real Property was just tested in February 2018, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it were tested again this July. It was last tested in consecutive administrations in July 2011 and February 2012. Further, sometimes when Real Property has been tested, the Examiners focused heavily on class gifts, and this can either be classified as a Trusts or Real Property issue. Real Property was tested! 

In determining our wild card subject we were also considering Evidence as a possibility. Evidence is one of the Examiners’ favorite subjects and has been tested on three of the five most recent administrations. And the last two times that Evidence was tested it was crossed over with Criminal Law and Procedure. Given that evidence was tested more frequently than Real Property on recent exams, we settled upon Real Property. However, we strongly recommend that you don’t discount evidence as you are studying for the exam! As it turns out, Evidence was tested too!

Note: We want to emphasize that you should not rely on these predictions! You should still study all of the subjects and focus on the most highly tested topics within each subject. We are simply letting you know what we think could be coming up on the July 2018 MEE with our July 2018 MEE predictions.
