Questions and Selected Answers
Past exam questions and selected answers are made available only for the limited, personal use of Colorado Bar Exam applicants. The publication of past exam questions and selected answers (or comments) is not intended to indicate any specific legal issue or issues that will be tested on a future exam. Do not use them as a substitute for learning the subjects covered on the exam.
Overall, these select answers help to demonstrate the general length and quality of responses that earned above average scores on the indicated administration of the essay portion of the bar examination. However, these are unrevised answers written by actual examinees under time constraints without access to law books. As such, these essays do not always correctly identify or respond to all issues raised by the question, and they may contain some extraneous or incorrect information. They do not, in all respects, accurately reflect Colorado law or its application to the facts. These essays are not intended as “model answers” and should never be taken by anyone as legal advice.
