Each jurisdiction’s bar exam is different whether it be the deadlines and application requirements or the make-up of the exam itself. However, there are some components of the bar exam that can be consistent from jurisdiction to jurisdiction (i.e., the MEE or the MBE) or the entire exam may be consistent from jurisdiction to jurisdiction (i.e., the UBE). 

The following pages dig into the various components of the majority of bar exam components within the United States. Feel free to use the links below or the links in the left menu:

  • Multistate Bar Examination (MBE)
  • Multistate Essay Examination (MEE)
  • Multistate Performance Test (MPT)
  • Universal Bar Examination (UBE)
