NCBE Removes Commercial Paper from the 2015 Multistate Essay Exam (MEE).

Effective with the February 2015 bar exam, the NCBE will remove Negotiable Instruments (U.C.C. Art. 3) (a.k.a. "Commercial Paper") as well as the excerpts of Art. 4 (Bank Collections) from the Multistate Essay Examination (MEE).

Many students will welcome this news. If you did not take Commercial Paper in law school, it can be intimidating. But what a lot students under-appreciated was that the terminology made Commercial Paper difficult -- not the subject itself. Once you understood the terminology, the material was rather straightforward. But alas, for those taking the D.C. bar or bars in several mid-west jurisdictions, you now have one less "daunting" subject to cover. Enjoy the belated Christmas gift!
