Most state's bar exams have an essay portion. North Carolina has a six-hour essay section (weighted 60%) with exam questions specifically directed at North Carolina law (sample questions and answers are available on the NC Board of Law Examiner’s website). Other states follow a similar pattern, but some supplement the jurisdiction-specific essay exam with the Multistate Essay Exam (MEE), a three-hour, six-question essay exam with standardized questions developed by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. The resources listed below give guidance on essay exam topics and essay exam writing strategies.
