State-by-State Bar Exam Information: Utah
The last Tue and Wed of February and July
March 1, $550 (Late-filing deadline--April 1, with late fee)
Utah is a Unform Bar Examination (UBE) jurisdiction, meaning it administers only tests from the National Conference of Bar Examiners--the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), the Multistate Essay Examination (MEE), and the Multistate Performance Test (MPT).
Tested subjects for the MBE and the MEE are available at www.ncbex.org.
Because Utah is a UBE jurisdiction, past questions are available only from the National Conference of Bar Examiners at www.ncbex.org.
The written portion (essays, 30%; performance test, 20%) and the MBE are each weighted equally at 50% of the overall score.

Yes, but concurrent examination only
Utah accepts all UBE scores within three prior exam administrations (approximately 18 months). For applicants with UBE scores that are older than three prior exams, Utah will accept UBE scores for up to five years with proof of the full-time practice of law.
For applicants from non-UBE states: Utah requires that the applicant has practiced law for five of the last seven years and be from a state with which Utah has reciprocity.
