michigan bar exam, civil procedure mbeYou will see 25 Civil Procedure MBE questions on the Multistate Bar Exam — and 5-7 of them will cover topics such as jurisdiction (which we go over today!)

We will be posting a Multistate Bar Exam question once every couple days along with an answer. This is a 14-question series (which we continue each bar exam administration), so you will see two questions on each of the seven MBE subjects. Note that these are MBE questions that students commonly get wrong. If you can master these 14 questions, it could increase your MBE score by that many points if you see any of these issues tested again (which, by the way, you will!). These posts of MBE tips and tricks will not only cover substantive law but also strategy.  So each post will cover one highly-tested area of substantive law as well as an important MBE strategy.

As mentioned above, today, we will review a Civil Procedure MBE question that tests a common Civil Procedure MBE issue–jurisdiction! Do your best to answer this question (before even looking at the answer choices and before looking at the answer below!) Ask yourself:  What is the subject? What is the legal issue? What is the rule and analysis? What is the conclusion? Try to answer these beginning questions before even reading the answer choices. Then, uncover the  Civil Procedure MBE answer as well as read more about our MBE tip of the day.
