MBE: Criminal Law & Procedure

Want quick bottom lines about how to get a higher score on the MBE? Here is the Master MBE Method.

Criminal Law is a lot like Torts. Criminal Procedure is an interesting combination of Constitutional Law and Evidence. I recommend you work through all the questions in one sitting. When you review your answers, keep track of your mistakes. Remember that there are two ways to get an MBE question wrong: either you didn’t know the law or you read the question wrong.

When you make a legal error, it is useful to note it on the Micro Review outline. Keep in mind that annotating an outline with your legal errors is extremely useful. It is “active learning” that reinforces new knowledge. The idea is to waste as little time as possible on reviewing stuff you don’t know. Instead you want to learn new material and place it in the proper context.

Here are the questions and answer key.

Here is the video seminar about the questions and answers – total running time 1:48:56. Remember that if you click on the playlist button in the upper-left corner you can skip around within the seminar. If you want some personal coaching on the bar exam, tutorial services are available.
