MBE Tip #14 – Constitutional Law

MBE Strategies Blog Post Series:  Welcome to our MBE tips and tricks blog post series! This is our last day in our series of MBE tips. We will cover a Constitutional Law MBE Strategy.

Constitutional Law MBEYou will see 27 Constitutional Law MBE questions on the Multistate Bar Exam — and many of them will cover free speech (a topic we will go over in this post).

We have posted a total of 14 posts that focus on a specific multiple-choice question that many students answer incorrectly.  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 covers one highly-tested area of substantive law as well as an important MBE strategy.

As mentioned above, today, we will review a Constitutional Law MBE question that tests a common Constitutional Law MBE issue–free speech! 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  Constitutional Law MBE answer as well as read more about our MBE tip of the day.

This is Day 14 of our 14-question blog post series! If you would like to see MBE Strategy posts from prior days, please click on the links below:
