Impossible to sit for the UBE and Florida Bar Exam for February?

Postby gladiator0flaw11 » Sun Dec 25, 2016 6:28 pm

Does Florida have an exception for those who also sit for the UBE, or you have to just choose one? I get more job interview responses from Florida than my home state which requires the UBE. FML

I would be very surprised if Florida has such an exception. I took and passed the bar in July and I think I would've heard of something like this if it was out there. Florida is not very friendly to out of staters and probably would not have any policy that encourages people to take another bar. They also probably don't want anyone taking the test before/after anyone else so it all gets done at the same time in Tampa. Kind of sucks. Sitting for a second bar exam in another state because Fl has no reciprocity and I don't want to be stuck there forever just in case.

Very good point, I just wanted that option to leave the Northeast and neither Cali nor Florida adopted the UBE. I guess I'll have to sit again in the future. fml
