What is the MPRE?
The MPRE is the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam and you are required to take this exam in every state in the US to become a licensed attorney (except Washington, Wisconsin, or Maryland). The majority of these states allow you to take the MPRE exam while you are a 2L or 3L in order to get it out of the way before you take the bar exam. The MPRE is a separate exam from the bar exam and both are required to become a licensed attorney in all the states except the three listed above.
When is the MPRE offered?
The MPRE exam is offered three times a year in March, August, and November. The upcoming exam is on Friday, August 6th. Most states allow you to take the MPRE up to a year or even two before you take the bar exam (check your bar examiner's website for more details).
What is the structure of the MPRE exam?
The MPRE is a 60 question multiple-choice exam. You have two hours and five minutes to complete the exam. The subject matter for the test revolves around topics of ethics/professional responsibility.
How do I sign up to take the MPRE exam?
To register to take the MPRE exam this August go to www.ncbex.org. The fee for taking the exam is $63 if you register by the regular deadline (June 29, 2010) or $126 for the late deadline (if you enroll between June 30 - July 15, 2010).
What if I haven't taken the Professional Responsibility/Ethics class yet?
It's okay if you haven't taken the course offered by your school; it is not required to sign up and take the MPRE exam, though some students find that it helps. The materials that Kaplan PMBR or BarBri provides to you should be more than enough for you to prepare and pass the MPRE exam.
"Put $250 down today. This one-time fee covers enrollment in the MPRE review and provides you access to the Upper-Level Review materials. It also locks in your future Bar Review tuition at today's price, no matter where or when you take the bar exam."
