Sample of a Wills/Community Property Essay Cross-Over

pexels-photo-212185Hello All,

I hope you are having a good evening and remaining calm.

I have received a lot of questions about the possibility of seeing Community Property on tomorrow’s exam. While it is not my first pick, as I have always maintained – anything could be tested. And, if Community Property is something you are fearing, then you should give it a bit of a review before tomorrow.

If Community Property were to come up, I could see it being tested as a cross-over exam. One possibility is with Wills, but it could also show up with Evidence or even Trusts.

I am posting here (for sake of ease) a copy of a past California bar exam that tested both Wills and Community Property – you can download it here: (it was tested on the February 2006 bar exam and is long enough ago that it could easily repeat) WillsComPropEssayF06.

Again, I am not saying that this will show up tomorrow – I can not predict this exam – nor can anyone else. But, if you want to take a look at how these two topics can be tested together, then download the essay above. If you feel like it will only cause you further stress, then ignore it 🙂

Either way, I wish you much success tomorrow!

Please feel free to contact me at: – as always, I am grateful for your following and I welcome your insights on what is tested on the essays – I look forward to hearing from you.

All the best and much continued success!
