3. Family Law: When will a court enforce a premarital agreement?
4. Real Property: What is the merger doctrine?
5. Secured Transactions: Goods can be classified into four categories. Please describe what “inventory” is.
6. Torts: What is a battery?
7. Trusts: What is a charitable trust?
8. Wills: Describe the incorporation by reference doctrine.
Answers to the Uniform Bar Exam Quiz
1. A person has standing to raise a Fourth Amendment challenge if he has an expectation of privacy in the thing searched or seized.
2. A present sense impression is “a statement describing or explaining an event or condition made while or immediately after the declarant perceived it.”
3. A court will enforce a premarital agreement so long as it is voluntarily made, substantively fair, and if full disclosure of assets and obligations was made. A court will not, however, enforce a premarital agreement regarding child custody or support if it is not in the best interest of the child.
4. On the closing date, the contract for sale merges into the deed, so at that point, the buyer can only sue on the deed.
5. Inventory is goods, other than farm products, that are held by a person for sale or lease to be furnished under a contract of service; or raw materials, work in process, or materials used or consumed in a business (e.g., computers sold by a computer store).
6. A battery is an act with intent to cause a harmful or offensive contact or imminent apprehension of that contact and a harmful or offensive contact directly or indirectly results.
7. A charitable trust may be created for a charitable purpose. It must have a large number of not-readily-identifiable individuals (rather than a few identifiable individuals).
8. A writing that is not valid as a will may be incorporated by reference into a will if the will manifests an intent to incorporate the writing and the writing is identified with reasonable certainty. This writing must exist at the time the will is executed. (The UPC and some states recognize the right of a testator to dispose of tangible personal property by a signed memorandum, whether it is prepared before or after the execution of the will, even if it does not comply with the formalities of a will.)
