Nevada Bar Exam Overview

The Nevada Bar Exam consists of the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), the Multistate Performance Test (MPT), and 7 essay questions.

Nevada Essays

The Nevada Essay portion of the exam consists of 7 essay questions, including a required question on legal ethics

Subjects that may be tested on the essay portion include the following: Agency & Partnership, Community Property, Conflict of Laws, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Corporations, Criminal Law & Procedure, Evidence, Persons and Domestic Relations, Real Property, Remedies, Torts, Uniform Commercial Code (Articles 2, 3, and 9), Wills, Estates and Trusts, as well as pleadings and practices under both the Nevada Rules of Civil Procedure and the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure. Both fundamental legal principles and Nevada law are tested and may embrace more than a single subject.

Multistate Performance Test (MPT)

The Multistate Performance Test (MPT) is developed by NCBE and consists of two 90-minute items. It is administered by user jurisdictions as part of the bar examination on the Tuesday before the last Wednesday in February and July of each year.

The MPT is designed to test an examinee's ability to use fundamental lawyering skills in a realistic situation and complete a task that a beginning lawyer should be able to accomplish. The MPT is not a test of substantive knowledge. Rather, it is designed to evaluate certain fundamental skills lawyers are expected to demonstrate regardless of the area of law in which the skills arise.

Multistate Bar Exam (MBE)

The MBE, which is administered on Wednesday, is developed and graded by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE).

This portion of the examination is an objective 6-hour examination containing 200 multiple-choice questions, which is divided into two 3-hour sessions during which 100 questions are administered.

The MBE tests 7 subjects: Civil Procedure, Constitutional Law, Contracts, Criminal Law & Procedure, Evidence, Real Property, and Torts

I said goodbye to my “fake” BarBri MBE questions and focused on reading the BarMax outlines and doing MBEs as often as I could. I was able to raise my MBE score 20% by the end of the first week.
