Law School Final Exam Sample Question 

Many students find it helpful to look at law school final exam sample questions to see exactly what they are in for! Here, we have a short Torts question so you can see an example of what a standard law school final exam sample question looks like.

Note the following is true about most law school exams (but please check your syllabus because law school professors can test students in whatever way they want!)

  • Most law school exams consist of one or more law school exam fact patterns, which are generally stories that have a lot of legal issues hidden in them (see below for an example).
  • Most law school exams do not test the particular facts of cases.
  • Most law school exams are not “short answer” or “fill in the blank”.
  • It is trendier to make multiple-choice questions a component of a law school final exam so check to see if your professor does that.

You can see the sample law school exam questions below, but before you start reviewing these exams, first see if your professor has any past exams.

The absolute best source of law school practice exams will be the ones written by your professor for the class you are currently in. Why is this the best source?

  • You will get a good idea of the format of the exam
  • You will see what kinds of issues the professor is looking for (assuming they provide model or sample answers)
  • You will understand the professor’s testing style
  • You will feel more comfortable on test day

Consult the below exams

  • if your professor does not have any exams on file or
  • if your professor does, but you have simply run out of practice exams, or 
  • if your professor includes exams on file but they do not have any sample answers or model answers

If, for example, you have a Constitutional Law professor with 20 years of Constitutional Law exams and sample answers on file, you don’t need to use these resources at all! But if your professor only has a handful of exams on file and you run out, it is a good idea to use these resources.

We’ve listed several resources for law school sample exams below:

It’s best if you collect a lot of practice exams at once. Ideally, print them or save them by class so that when you are ready to practice exams, you can get started.
