Baby Bar FAQs

The Baby Bar Exam, known as the First Year Law Students Exam (FYLSE), is a qualifying exam administered by the Committee of Bar Examiners. First year law students who attend unaccredited law schools must take it and pass it after completing their first year of law school in order to proceed to their next year in law school.  

The Baby Bar Exam tests the subjects of Contracts/U.C.C., Torts, and Criminal Law. The exam consists of four essay exams and 100 multiple choice questions. The exam's difficulty level is akin to that of the CA Bar Exam. Thus, first year students who take the Baby Bar Exam are expected to demonstrate the level of legal analysis and writing skills that those taking the CA Bar Exam must demonstrate. For that reason, students who must take the Baby Bar Exam are wise to attend a Baby Bar review course, ideally the four-day Fleming's Baby Bar Review Course, before taking the exam in order to develop the skills necessary to pass.
