–  –  –

Commencing with July 2016 bar examination, the New York bar examination consists of the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE). The UBE is a high quality, uniform battery of tests that are administered contemporaneously in every other jurisdiction that has adopted the UBE. The UBE is uniformly administered, graded and scored, and it results in a score that can then be transferred to other UBE jurisdictions.

The UBE consists of the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), the Multistate Performance Test (MPT), and the Multistate Essay Examination (MEE). An applicant must take all sections of the UBE concurrently in the same jurisdiction in order to earn a UBE score that may then be transferred to other UBE jurisdictions. An applicant may transfer a concurrent MBE score to New York from another jurisdiction to combine with the written section for a bar examination score but the applicant will NOT earn a UBE score.





The Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) is held each year on the last Tuesday and Wednesday of February and July.

More information regarding the UBE, including the list of jurisdictions that have adopted the

UBE, is available at the website of the National Conference of Bar Examiners at:

A summary of the requirements is also available by clicking on the Bar Exam Eligibility section on the Board's website. If you are not in compliance with any of these rules, and you commenced the study of law in the United States prior to April 1, 2012, the Saving Clause of Rule 520.1(b) provides that the rules which were in place when you began your law school study apply.
