Arizona administers the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE), which consists of six Multistate Essay Examination (MEE) questions, two Multistate Performance Test (MPT) questions, and the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE). For information about the MEE, MPT and MBE, including past questions and summaries, go to the National Conference of Bar Examiners website at www.ncbex.org. The Arizona UBE is offered in February and July, and lasts two days. Its purpose is to test an applicant's ability to identify legal issues in a statement of facts such as may be encountered in the practice of law, to engage in a reasoned analysis of the issues and to arrive at a logical solution by the application of fundamental legal principles in a manner which demonstrates a thorough understanding of these principles.
Applicants who successfully test UBE may be eligible to transfer their UBE score into other UBE jurisdictions. For a list of UBE jurisdictions and link to other state’s rules, go to www.ncbex.org. Applicants who have actively practiced law for five of the past seven years might be eligible for admission to Arizona by motion. Applicants who have earned a UBE score in another jurisdiction may be eligible for admission to Arizona by transfer of UBE score. For information on these alternate paths for admission to the practice of law in Arizona, return to the home screen.
Additional requirements apply, including the attainment of a passing score on the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE), completion of the Course on Arizona Law, and demonstration of good moral character. For a complete list of requirements, please see Supreme Court Rules 34-37.
