The Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE)


NCBE contracts with the Law School Admission Council (LSAC) to provide test registration and administration for the MPRE, while NCBE performs scoring and score reporting to examinees and jurisdictions. NCBE also makes decisions on requests for test accommodations by examinees with disabilities. Please direct inquiries pertaining to the MPRE as follows:

Jurisdiction Information

The MPRE is required for admission to the bars of all but three U.S. jurisdictions (Maryland, Wisconsin, and Puerto Rico). A list of jurisdictions currently using the MPRE is available on the MPRE FAQs page. Passing scores are established by each jurisdiction. Since the MPRE requirements vary from one jurisdiction to another, examinees are advised to check with the board of bar examiners in each jurisdiction where admission is being sought before registering for the MPRE. Contact information for jurisdictions can be found in the Bar Admission Offices Directory on the home page.

Exclusive Remedies

NCBE and LSAC take steps to ensure that MPRE registration materials are properly handled and processed, and that exams and answer sheets are properly prepared, printed, handled, and scored. In the unlikely event that a mistake occurs in preparing, handling, processing, scoring, or reporting scores, NCBE will correct the error, if possible, or permit the affected examinee(s) either to retest at no additional fee or to receive a refund of the examination fee(s). These remedies are the exclusive remedies available to examinees for errors in preparing, handling, or processing registration materials; in printing, handling, or processing exams and exam answer sheets; and/or in determining or reporting scores.
