Has anyone taken a Guam bar exam?

Postby drivee » Mon May 14, 2018 11:21 pm

That's right ' Guam bar. Even a bar exam preparation is not provided for Guam and I heard that the pass rate is low. Any ideas about how to prepare for the Guam bar?

My second q is: It consists of the MBE and MEE and local questions. When the bar exam consists of an MBE and MEE, can I just take any jurisdictions exam preparation service that also consists of an MBE and MEE?

ANY IDEA OR ANECDOTAL EXPERIENCE, PLEASE? :cry:

Hi, I have not taken the Guam bar exam but I have experience being from the South Pacific and worked here (also taking the Hawaii bar in July, which is MBE/MEE but has a state specific ethics portion ), and I would suggest you contact the Guam Bar Association for resources and to inquire what exactly their specific questions are on, and also use their statutes as study material. Since the rest of it is normal MEE/MBE/MPRE, take a normal prep course (Themis, Kaplan, etc) in addition and you should be fine. I am thinking their bar passage rate may be low for a variety of reasons but you can also ask the bar association if you can speak with their officers or if they can put you in contact with someone who took the bar there before whom you can ask about the Guam specific material, even if they know of a recent bar taker who wouldn't mind helping you?
