Take on the notoriously tricksy Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) with confidence and a razor-sharp ken with Brainscape's MPRE Review flashcards in your corner. From the very latest in confidentiality and conflicts of interest to the myriad of other ethical premises underlying the practice of law, this collection contains everything you need to ace the exam!

If you thought the bar exam was hard, the MPRE is here to remind you that your uphill battle to becoming a practicing lawyer ain't over, baby! The MPRE is by its very nature a difficult examination (and arguably more difficult than the bar) given that it’s hard to test ethics in a multiple-choice format.

What this means is that you need to know your rules, regulations, terms, and laws like the back of your hand so that you can answer those questions decisively and accurately, without being confused by the variety of answers provided. The best way to memorize mountains of content like this? Brainscape’s MPRE flashcards!

The best, easy-to-digest MPRE Prep

Brainscape's team of attorneys and legal educators have worked tirelessly to distill the entire MPRE curriculum down into a comprehensive collection of nine, neatly-organized decks of flashcards that frame each morsel of content as a question and answer:

  • Regulation of the legal profession
  • The lawyer-client relationship
  • Client confidentiality
  • Conflicts of interest
  • Competence and malpractice
  • Litigation and other forms of advocacy
  • Lawyer roles and third party communications
  • Communications about legal services
  • Lawyers’ public duties and judicial conduct

Delivered via a spaced repetition learning algorithm (and leveraging other core cognitive science learning principles), Brainscape’s flashcards can help you master all of this information way more efficiently and conveniently than any other app or prep resource on the market. These are the truly the most comprehensive flashcards to help you prepare more efficiently for the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam!
