About The Exam

The JD-NEXT exam consists of 80 multiple choice questions (60 operational and 20 pretest) and one written essay (“writing sample”). The multiple choice and essay questions assess 15 broad learning objectives. These learning objectives reflect the work learners have completed in the JD-NEXT course, emphasizing the identification of key elements of case law to prepare learners for the traditional case law method that has been the hallmark of legal education for over 100 years.


The exam allows test takers a standard of 4.0 hours to complete the exam including one 10-minute break. Included in the 4.0 hours is 30 minutes to complete an ungraded essay. Pretest questions do not contribute to the total score but are necessary for statistical purposes only and are randomly distributed throughout the exam. Candidates answer all exam questions. The JD-NEXT exam score range is 400-1,000.

Interpreting the Report

The JD-Next exam is designed to serve as a prediction of test taker’s likely performance in law school. This report includes a description of the learning outcomes assessed by the final exam and taught within the JD-NEXT course. For each learning objective you will see a rating of four stars (****), three stars (***), two stars (**), or one star (*). Most students will receive two or three stars for most learning objectives. Some students will receive four-stars which indicates areas of strength. One-stars indicate areas requiring further development to master the learning objective.

General Recommendations

Law school classes generally rely on some form of the case law method, and pulling key elements from the case readings assigned will remain a relevant and fundamental skill no matter what doctrinal law course taken. Because of the broad applicability, you should prioritize addressing underperformance in any of the FIRAC learning objectives, including identifying dispositive facts, procedural history, rules, issues, and conclusions. As for the learning outcomes particular to a given case or class, learners will likely re-learn these topics from your professor and the assigned materials in law school.
