November 08 2018 Bar Review News By Pieper Bar Review

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.

Today's Question:


A state statute required all teachers in the public school system who taught any theory of human origin based on Darwinian theory to also teach theories based on established religious doctrines. A public school teacher in the state, who satisfied the requirements of standing and who refused to teach religious theories of human origin, challenged the constitutionality of the statute.

Is the statute constitutional?

(A) Yes, it is constitutional because there is no entanglement of church and state.
(B) Yes, it is constitutional because the state has an obligation to present to students all sides of a field of learning as important as human origin.
(C) No, it is unconstitutional because the state has no right to control school curriculum.
(D) No, it is unconstitutional as an establishment of religion.

Reveal the Answer

The Answer is D.

Here's why. 

Prohibiting of the teaching of “divine creation science” violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment because the statute’s purpose is to advance the doctrine of religious fundamentalists (secular humanism). See Edwards v. Aguillard, 476 U.S. 1103 (1987). Therefore, choice (D) is correct.

Choices (A), (B), and (C) do not address an establishment of religion theory, which is the one constitutional argument with which the statute potentially may be struck down. They are also inaccurate statements of the law.
