Transferring MBE Score

Postby cnk1220 » Tue May 16, 2017 5:05 pm

Does anyone know if California accepts transferred MBE scores? I heard there were some jurisdictions that accept transferred MBE scores...

Thanks in advance!

They do not. Check out Chart 8 and the supplemental comments (MBE info is bottom of p. 39-40) for each jurisdiction. http://www.ncbex.org/pubs/bar-admissions-guide/2017/index.html#p=38

They don't accept transferred MBE scores, however, if you've been a licensed attorney in good standing in another jurisdiction for the last 4 years immediately preceding the exam, you can sit for the Attorney exam. The Attorney exam is the essay and MPT portion of the test and you skip MBE day.
