The Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) is the multiple-choice section of the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE). It's a six-hour examination featuring 200 multiple-choice questions, testing examinees' abilities to apply fundamental legal principles and reasoning to given fact patterns.
Such a comprehensive exam demands an equally rigorous preparation regimen. Besides enrolling in a bar review course, the most effective study method for the Multistate Bar Exam is to answer practice questions.
Yeah, we know: easier said than done. Fitting this into an already packed schedule of intensive studies and related assignments, the responsibilities accompanying a job, and all the countless duties and unpredictable situations of personal and home life—whether that's caring for an elderly family member, children, or just the daily rigmaroles—can sound overwhelming.
With Pieper Bar Review, however, it doesn't have to be.

FEDERAL CIVIL PROCEDURE
A woman from State A suffered a fractured skull while riding on a bus when the bus driver from State B crashed the bus into a truck operated by a driver from State C. The accident occurred in State D. The woman filed a federal diversity action based on negligence against the bus driver and the truck driver.
Which state is a proper venue for the lawsuit?
- State D.
- State B or State C.
- State A.
- State D, State B, or State C.
The Answer is A.
Although there is jurisdiction over the bus driver in State B and there is jurisdiction over the truck driver in State C, when the claim arose there would be jurisdiction over both defendants in State D. The Rules for personal jurisdiction and venue are, however, different. The defendant’s residence is important for the choice of venue only if all of the defendants reside in one state. Here, the defendants reside in different states so choice (A) is correct: State D is the venue where the event giving rise to the plaintiff’s claim took place. For venue purposes, the plaintiff’s residence (State A) is irrelevant.
