Bar Exam Preparation
Assisting our graduates in passing the bar exam.
Assisting Charlotte School of Law graduates in passing the bar exam is of vital importance to our Charlotte School of Law community. Beginning with first year orientation and continuing throughout our students’ entire law school careers, our faculty and staff offer several programs and activities to help each student pass the bar exam in their state.
North Carolina and South Carolina Distinctions
North Carolina and South Carolina Distinctions are 2-credit elective courses designed to assist students in further developing skills necessary to succeed on the bar exam while simultaneously introducing students to substantive material that is unique to North Carolina and South Carolina and substantive material that has a history of being frequently tested on the bar exam. Through the use of bar-style problems and exercises, students learn strategies for mastering techniques to answer MBE multiple choice style questions and to draft coherent, organized bar exam essays.
Emphasis is placed on issue spotting, analysis, organization and time management for the bar exam. There will be frequent assignments, as well as required conferences with the course instructor to review written work and evaluate bar exam preparedness.
This course is only open to graduating students. This class is not designed nor intended to be a substitute for a post-graduation commercial bar review course. Students may not receive credit for taking both Carolinas Distinctions and MBE Strategies.
MBE Strategies is a 2-credit course that provides students with an intensive substantive review of selected legal material routinely tested on the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) from the areas of Contracts, Torts, Real Property, Evidence, Constitutional Law and Criminal Law and Procedure.
