Register for the MBPP
The Minority Bar Passage Program (MBPP) is designed to improve bar passage rates of minority law school graduates sitting for the Michigan Bar Exam. Through weekly examinations, a mock bar examination, group sessions and lectures by local attorneys, MBPP provides assistance in the areas of: (i) Essay Writing Skills/Strategy; (ii) Test Taking Skills/Strategy; (iii) Time Management; and (iv) Stress Management.
Each week during the program, students will take mini-exams consisting of three essay questions. Students will also take a full mock bar exam consisting of 15 essay questions. MBPP does not teach substantive law. Accordingly, MBPP should be taken in conjunction with a traditional bar review course to give you the ultimate edge in studying for "both the multi-state and essay sections" of the exam.
