Transfer UBE Score to Arizona from New Mexico

Postby Enthused Law Student » Mon Mar 11, 2019 3:34 pm

Hi everyone,

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.

    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 .

Thanks, :lol:

Hi, I am licensed in AZ. To the best of my knowledge, you will need to present the documents on that list and go through the C & F process. Any other questions let me know.

Kalani,

Thanks for responding!

So to the best of your knowledge, I CAN take the bar in a foreign jurisdiction (NM), and if the score is 273 or higher and I complete the above checklist, I can get licensed in AZ right away?

Regards,
ELS

I everyone has to do a C & F app. 34(H)(F) Rules of Admission for transfer score. The process goes pretty quick if you have a somewhat clean record.
