The two-week U.S. Bar Exam training program has successfully concluded. In addition to reviewing the subjects covered in the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) organized by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE), participants have also gained a comprehensive understanding of the content for the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), Multistate Performance Test (MPT), and Multistate Essay Examination (MEE).
This training course extensively covered UBE subjects including U.S. contract law, tort law, civil procedure, trusts and estates, family law, and conflict of laws. To cater to topics less familiar to Taiwanese students, such as U.S. evidence law, criminal law, and criminal procedure, we specially invited Thomas Wang, Esq., a lawyer with years of experience in U.S. criminal litigation, to instruct the students. Additionally, in each class session, both instructors and students collaboratively designed practice questions for the MBE, MEE, and MPT exams, ensuring that students can effectively apply their knowledge when facing the UBE.
It's worth mentioning that the participants in this training course had a diverse composition. There were attendees with LL.M. and J.D. degrees from the U.S. looking to review UBE subjects through this course, local practicing lawyers in Taiwan aiming to familiarize themselves with the U.S. bar exam format, and American university students planning to apply for a U.S. J.D. program, seeking an initial exposure to American law through this course.
Within this environment, like-minded participants have formed a learning community with the aim of joining forces to tackle the challenges of the future U.S. bar exam.
