I apologize if my question is somewhat repetitive, but I am just trying to get a little help with a specific question (my University's career services and advising department has really broken down in recent months and I could use a little assistance with this question).
My personal facts: I am a law student graduating in May of 2019. I am already registered to take the Bar Exam in New Mexico this July 2019. I have completed the C&F application for New Mexico, completed the in-person course on New Mexico Law, and have achieved a passing MPRE score for all jurisdictions.
Issues: I would also like to become licensed to practice in Arizona as soon as possible. Bear in mind that both states are "UBE" jurisdictions.
- If I get a 273 on the UBE administered and taken in New Mexico this July 2019, is getting admission to the Arizona Bar really as simple as following the UBE Transfer Score Application found in the following location: https://www.azcourts.gov/Portals/26/admis/pdf/UBEScoreTransferApplicationChecklist.pdf from the AZSC's website?
- Would I still need to go through the full C&F application for the State of Arizona?
- I find it hard to believe that I would not need to do so in light of the fact that I am not yet a licensed attorney anywhere. While there are some C&F "light" pieces in the checklist, the process just seems "too" easy compared to the extensive application process in New Mexico.
Further, if anyone knows who I could reach out to in Arizona to ensure that I understand this process, I would be immensely grateful .
