MPRE (Ethics Exam)

The Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) is a multiple-choice exam testing applicants' knowledge of the rules of professional responsibility governing lawyers. Most questions seek answers based on the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct or the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct. The MPRE is produced by the National Conference of Bar Examiners, and 53 jurisdictions (including all states except Maryland and Wisconsin) require applicants to pass it. Passing scores vary by state. The MPRE is administered in March, August, and November. For more details, see here.

The courses at the Law School that help to prepare students for the MPRE include Legal Profession, Professional Responsibility, and Law and Ethics of Lawyering.
