MPRE Exam Information

The Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) is a 60-question, two-hour-and-five-minute, multiple-choice examination administered by the National Conference of Bar Examiners. Exam questions are based on the law governing the conduct of lawyers, which is primarily drawn from the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct, and controlling constitutional decisions.

The MPRE is administered three times a year, in March, August, and November, and is required for admission to the bar of all but three U.S. jurisdictions.  The MPRE site has information on test dates and times and a general information booklet that can be downloaded in PDF above.  Passing scores vary for each jurisdiction, from a low of 75 to a high of 86. The test is scaled so that a score of 100 equals the national average. Find out what score is considering passing in your state by going to the National Conference of Bar Examiners website.
