The Baby Bar, or the California First-Year Law Student Exam (FYLSE), is the exam that all first-year law students who attend an unaccredited law school in California must take.
The Baby Bar is required of all California-based law students who have completed their first year of law study at a school that is not accredited by the ABA or State Bar. The exam is administered yearly in June and October and consists of 4 essay questions and 100 multiple-choice questions in Contracts, Criminal Law, and Torts. The exam tests the subjects of Contracts, Criminal Law, and Torts.
It is important to note that the subtopic of Constitutional Protection of Accused Persons (Criminal Law), is NOT tested on the MBE for the Baby Bar. Therefore, it is not included in AdaptiBar’s Baby Bar preparation program.
