Are you beginning your preparation for the Michigan bar exam and wondering where you can find past Michigan bar exam essay questions?

If you are wondering where to find past Michigan bar exam essay questions and model answers, look no further than this post! We will tell you which resources you should consult to make the most of your bar exam essay preparation.

Best Sources for Past Michigan Bar Exam Essay Questions

  • First, note that the past exam questions and model answers for Michigan Bar Exams from February 2009 until July 2019 (as of this date) are online on the Michigan Board of Law Examiners’ website (look at the right side of the page). Thus, you will be able to find the most recent bar exam questions online, at your fingertips, for free!
  • Note most commercial courses will provide you with past essays. For example, JD Advising provides students with past essays from 1990 on. So, you can always consult your commercial course as well.

The Board of Law Examiners’ website is arranged by year, not subject. So, if you want to practice Torts essays, you will have to do a lot of digging! At that point, it makes more sense to purchase essays from a commercial course, where you will find the essays organized by subject. (Please consult with the course first and ask how many essays they provide and if they are organized by subject.)

The Michigan Board members highly recommend that you review past essays. It is one of the best ways to improve your bar exam score.

    How to Study Smart for the Michigan Bar Exam - JD Advising

    […] Just like you shouldn’t treat all subjects equally, you should also be careful to not treat all topics equally, either. For example, the last few times that Conflicts of Law was tested (the most recent time was July 2008) the issues were nearly the same (choice of law in a contractual dispute and, more recently, choice of law in a tort dispute). Thus, if you only have a limited time to study for the bar exam, rather than spending an inordinate amount of time trying to memorize all 50 pages of your bar review course’s Conflicts of Law outline, it may be a better to skim the outline to get the bigger picture but focus most of your time and energy on topics that have been tested the most heavily in the past. This is the best way to study smart for the bar exam.  (To find which topics are highly-tested, buy our new book, How to Pass the Michigan Bar Exam,  or, if you’d rather go through the essay questions on your own, read this post to see where to find past Michigan bar exam essay questions.)
