The California Bar Exam

The California Bar Exam assesses whether or not a candidate is competent to practice law in California.

For its bar exam, California requires completion of two parts.

The first portion of the California Bar Exam is the Multistate Bar Examination, or the MBE. The MBE is administered twice annually; once on the last Wednesday in February and again on the last Wednesday in July.

The second portion of the California Bar Exam tests candidates on unique aspects of California's laws. The state specific portion of the California bar examination is administered in essay format.

AdaptiBar prepares students for the MBE portion of the California bar examination. The MBE occurs on one day, which is divided into two, three-hour parts, each consisting of 100 questions. When answering MBE questions, students apply fundamental legal principles instead of local case or statutory law. During the MBE, students analyze fact situations or act as advocates. Students choose only one correct answer - the best answer - from the four available choices.
