How much has the body of material tested on the Multistate Bar Examination changed over the last ten years?
Arguing with my clever friend, as ever
. She thinks it's been stable, I think that Constitutional Law, at least, has changed a whole heck of a lot: takings, affirmative action, separation of powers, individual rights (half
of all con law questions). Maybe not so much property, contracts, and torts.
We passed the bar and diverged--her into her tax, me into finance, and neither of us has really kept track. So we argue blindly, thoroughly entrenched, enjoying ourselves immensely. But now I wonder: has the law changed enough to be radically different on the MBE?
/N.B.: IANA Not a recent JD trying to use really really old books for bar prep. That would be sad.
