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!
