Which exams can Oregon Bar preparation help me get ready to take?
Oregon is one of the states that has adopted the Universal Bar Exam (UBE). Therefore, if you pass the Bar exam in Oregon, you'll be free to transfer those results to the other states in the country that have adopted the UBE. The Universal Bar Exam is actually composed of three separate tests. The first test is called the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE). It focuses on some of the most important legal subject areas. You'll be tasked with answering 200 multiple-choice questions on topics like real property, torts, evidence, and civil procedure, to name a few.
You'll also need to take the Multistate Essay Examination or MEE. This test was designed to assess your ability to identify the legal issues that are raised by a hypothetical factual situation, present a reasoned analysis of those issues, and demonstrate your understanding of legal areas like contract and constitutional law, among others. Finally, the last part of the UBE is the Multistate Performance Test (MPT). Here, you'll complete two 90-minute items, which require you to apply relevant law to a fact pattern. The MPT was designed to be similar to the type of assignments that you may be tasked with completing as a beginning attorney.
In addition to these exams, Oregon also requires potential lawyers to complete the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam or MPRE. This test is concerned with your knowledge of the rules that govern the behavior of lawyers and judges. You'll want to know about topics like client confidentiality and conflicts of interest before taking this exam.
These are all tests that you can get help preparing for by signing up for Oregon Bar prep. When you do, your instructor can help you review the topics that you've already learned about and develop a strong understanding of ones that you haven't. Keep reading to the next section, which provides more information on the unique benefits of both forms of Oregon Bar preparation.
How can I benefit from taking an Oregon Bar prep course?
Courses are a collaborative learning opportunity that takes place on a powerful virtual learning platform. If you sign up for a course, you'll be directly connected with your instructor and with peers who are preparing for the Bar exam just like you. Courses are conducted entirely online and could help you get more out of the time that you put into preparing for your upcoming tests.
When you sign up for a class, your instructor can lead you on a step-by-step journey through the most challenging content that you need to know before taking the Bar exam. Classes take place in a live setting, which differs from many of the other test preparation tools out there. The live setting of classes makes them highly interactive. For example, your instructor can lead your class through discussions. You'll also be able to ask questions when you have them and listen to the questions that your classmates ask. This creates a powerful collaborative learning experience that can help you make more efficient progress towards your Bar exam prep goals.
Additionally, we don't force the instructors who lead our classes to follow a predetermined lesson plan. Instead, they are free to adjust the content that they cover in any given lesson based on the needs of you and your classmates. For example, if your class has a solid understanding of contracts already, then your instructor won't make you all sit through numerous lectures on the subject area. Instead, they will be free to quickly move onto topics that you and your peers still need assistance with. This is a much more effective way to prepare for the Bar exam than simply following along with a pre-recorded series of lessons, which is what many of the other Bar exam preparation tools consist of.
Still, there may be times when you're taking your class that you feel like you don't fully understand some of the content that your educator has already finished covering. If this happens to you, then you won't have to worry about falling behind the pace of your course. Instead, all of our classes come with the option of requesting one-on-one assistance from your educator. You can take advantage of this to get personalized assistance with the topics that you're having the toughest time with. This is another example of how classes can help you get more out of your Bar exam study sessions.
What can I get out of Oregon Bar prep?
Working with a private instructor is another excellent way to enhance the quality of your Oregon Bar preparation. This option will give you the chance to work individually with your instructor in a one-on-one setting. Your instructor can get to know your specific academic needs and learning style. Then, they can create a customized lesson plan for you that is targeted specifically with your growth in mind. You'll be able to work through your lesson plan at your own pace and stop to ask for additional assistance whenever you need it.
Your instructor will be able to spend as much or as little time as you need on each topic that they help you with. They can also work with you on things like legal writing, which will be an important part of determining your final score on some of the tests that you take. For example, they can give you sample problems to work on, which require you to write in the same way that you'll need to when taking the MEE or the MPT. They can guide you through each step of the writing process and show you the kinds of things that you should be focusing on when taking your real exam. This can help you feel more confident the day of your test. The type of personalized assistance that you can get from a private educator is very difficult to find through other test preparation options.
Can I fit this type of test preparation assistance into my schedule?
We understand that you likely already have a very busy schedule. That's why both forms of Bar exam preparation help that we offer are very flexible. For example, if you want to work with a private instructor, then we can help you connect with someone who is able to work with you around the other important parts of your life.
Or, maybe you would rather participate in a Bar exam class. This is also something that you can easily fit into your schedule. We offer classes that meet at a variety of times throughout the week. For example, you can find one that occurs after the workday is finished, on the weekend, and at many other times throughout the week. You can reach out to us directly to get help with finding the right class for your specific scheduling requirements.
What are the benefits of online test preparation tools?
Since both courses and private instruction take place entirely online, you may be wondering what this means for your test preparation experience. This can actually provide you with benefits that you wouldn't be able to get from in-person instruction. For example, we're free to look across the country for the best Bar exam educators to lead our classes. Comparatively, if you took an in-person class, you would be limited to studying with only the best instructors from your local area. This also applies to Bar exam tutoring. This means that when you sign up for one of our learning supplements, you can work with some of the best educators in the country.
The fact that both of these learning tools take place online can also positively impact your schedule. You won't have to worry about commuting to and from a physical location for each session with your instructor or class. Instead of dealing with traffic and looking for parking, you can devote all of the time that you've made available for studying towards actually preparing for your Bar exam.
