“Passing the Bar”

To become a lawyer, you must pass the bar which is comprised of a three step process. First, passing the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE). Second, passing the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE). Third, passing a character and fitness test.


The Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) is designed to test a prospective attorney’s knowledge about the Model Ethics Code created and by the American Bar Association. The exam consists of 60 multiple choice questions (50 scored and 10 not scored) taken within a two-hour time limit.


The Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) is comprised of three parts: Multistate Essay Examination, Multistate Performance Test, Multistate Bar Exam. Each state has unique requirements. To simplify, we’ll combine all the information into this single paragraph. The current bar exam takes two days to complete and consists of six 30-minute essay questions and 200 multiple choice questions. The following courses could be represented in the essay questions and the grey check-marked courses will appear as multiple-choice topics:

  • Business Associations

  • Constitutional Law

  • Contracts

  • Criminal Law & Procedure

  • Evidence

  • Family Law
