The Pennsylvania Board of Bar Examiners offer a few past essay exams here. (We offer a bigger selection of past Pennsylvania essay questions below.)

The Pennsylvania bar exam, a 2-day exam, consists of the six-hour multiple-choice Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), weighted 45%; one 90-minute Pennsylvania Performance Test problem, weighted 11%; six 45-minute Pennsylvania essays, weighted 44%.

The successful applicant must achieve a combined scaled score of 272. Applicants also must pass the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) with a scaled score of 75, and the state Law Examiners must receive the results within 6 months after the bar exam.

The following subjects may be tested on the Pennsylvania bar exam: business organizations (including partnerships, corporations, LLCs, and professional corporations), civil procedure (Pennsylvania and federal), conflict of laws, constitutional law, contracts, including UCC Article 2 sales, criminal law and procedure (Pennsylvania and federal), employment discrimination (limited to Title VII, ADA, and ADEA), evidence (Pennsylvania and federal), family law, professional responsibility, real property, including real estate finance, taxation (federal income), torts, UCC Article 2 sales, wills, trusts, and decedents' estates.
