Iowa adopts the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE)

Iowa becomes the 17th jurisdiction to adopt the UBE. Examinees who take the UBE earn a portable score that can be used to apply for admission in other UBE jurisdictions. Iowa will administer the UBE starting with the February 2016 exam. The date on which Iowa will begin accepting transferred UBE scores from other UBE jurisdictions is yet to be determined.
