Texas Bar Examination Subjects
The Texas Bar Examination includes the Multistate Performance Test (MPT),
a skills test designed to assess the examinee's ability to use fundamental
lawyering skills in a realistic situation. During the test, each examinee
will receive a "file" of source documents and a "library"
of cases, statutes, and rules. Using these materials, the examinee will
be required to perform an assigned lawyering task, such as writing a
memorandum to a supervising attorney, a letter to a client, a contract
provision, a proposal for settlement, or a closing argument. Contact
the National Conference of Bar Examiners for sample MPT exams. The NCBE
website is www.ncbex.org or reach
the agency by telephone at 608-280-8550.
