California Bar Examination
Students with GPAs of below 3.1 at the conclusion of their first year are particularly encouraged (and in some cases required) to take courses offered in the second and third year on subjects tested in the bar exam. We have found that UCLA students in this category who take 6 or more upper-level bar courses pass the bar exam at a higher rate than students who take 2 or fewer of such courses. Refer to the Summary of Academic Standards for precise rules regarding required academic support.
Those taking the California Bar Examination may be required to answer questions involving issues from all of the subjects listed below:
- Business Associations
- Civil Procedure
- Community Property
- Constitutional Law
- Criminal Law and Procedure
- Professional Responsibility
- Real Property
- Wills and Succession
