The MPRE Exam stands for the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam. It is a part of the Bar Exam because you must pass it before you can become an attorney. However, the exam is not given at the same time as the Bar Exam. It must be taken on a different day.

The MPRE Exam consists of 50 multiple-choice questions. The exam lasts two hours and five minutes. The test is designed to measure an individual's knowledge of rules and professional conduct as a lawyer.

Steps to Enrolling in the MPRE Exam

Most students are allowed to take the exam before graduation from law school. A student can take this exam as early as desired while they are in law school. An ethics course is not required prior to taking the exam, but is recommended.

The MPRE Exam can be taken in any state, regardless of the state you will take the Bar Exam. Your scores can easily be transferred to another state for the Bar Exam. The fee for taking the exam is $52, unless your application is late. Then, the fee is $104. This fee entitles you to obtain a copy of your scores after taking the exam.
