Past Arizona Bar Exam Essay Questions and Summary of Issues

To be admitted to the practice of law in Arizona you must successfully complete the Bar Examination (MBE and Essay) and, at a separate time, the MPRE. The Arizona Supreme Court’s Committee on Examinations oversees the two-day bar examination, which is administered in February and July of each year. In order to help Bar Exam takers review their answers, the Arizona Supreme Court makes the essay portions of past exams available along with the Summary of Issues. Past Bar Exams are a very useful tool to study for law school exams and the Bar Exam. You may access recent Bar Exams by clicking the links below. If you would like to see older exams, they are on reserve at the Law Library Circulation Desk.

These exams are for the sole use of current ASU Law Students.
