From arson to murder, study an elemental breakdown of all of the major crimes tested on the Multistate Bar Exam. After studying this subject you will be able to immediately assess the criminal liability of any action.
Brainscape's MBE classes were developed by a team of attorneys from UCLA School of Law with learning scientists from Yale and Columbia Universities. The team recognized that the tools provided in full-service bar review programs (BarBri, Kaplan, Themis, etc) were not aligned with the demands of today’s bar exam. The key to success on the bar exam is the ability to quickly recall and apply bite-sized portions of law; however, the current long-winded structure of bar review miss the mark on creating an effective study resource for ingraining the information needed for success.
We've condensed ALL the core concepts covered in these full-service programs into the bite-sized facts that students can easily learn and leverage for success on the bar exam. We used a combination of old bar exams, course notes, competitors' test prep books, and advice from experienced tutors to ensure quality and COMPREHENSIVENESS. Dozens of student testers from top schools have helped us continually refine the content toward perfection over a period of two years. And now THOUSANDS of top students are using it to boost their scores on the MBE.
The MBE classes in Brainscape deliver and align to the comprehensive review provided in bar review programs, but does so with the focus of real legal experts leveraging the reality of today’s bar exam.
