MPT Tasks: A Chart that Summarizes Bar Exam MPT Tasks
Our MPT task chart includes the following information:
- The tone of the task (whether the goal is to persuade or be objective). This matters because if the tone is persuasive, you should not argue both sides. You should still address counterarguments, but in a persuasive manner. If your goal is to be objective, you should analyze both arguments to come up with a solution rather than advocate for one side or another.
- The recipient of the letter (whether it is generally a lawyer or a layperson). If the recipient is a lawyer, you can use more legalese. If the recipient is a layperson, you should not use excessive legalese.
- Whether headings need to have strong conclusions. Headings should be in full sentences and have strong conclusions in a persuasive memo. In the other types of tasks, strong headings are not needed.
- The goal of the task. The goal may be to determine how a legal issue will be resolved, to persuade, or to provide legal advice, Understanding the goal of the task will frame how you organize your MPT answer.
