If you are currently in law school or looking to prepare for law school, you have heard of the bar exam and you might have come across the term UBE – Uniform Bar Exam. But what is the UBE? What is the uniform bar exam?
What is the Uniform Bar Exam
The Uniform Bar Exam is a standardized bar exam that is now available in about 25 states across the United States. The UBE was created by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) and consists of 3 different parts: 1) Multistate Bar Examination (MBE); 2) the Multistate Essay Examination (MEE); and 3) Multistate Performance Test (MPT).
So as you continue your law school training and begin deciding on law schools and where you want to practice law, the UBE is something to consider. Historically, law school graduates would need to take the state bar exam offered by the state where they would be planning to practice so that they could be licensed to practice law in that state. With the advent of the UBE, law school graduates may now take the Uniform Bar Exam and use that score to apply beyond the traditional state line boundaries.
