Jurisdictions that have Adopted the Entire Uniform Bar Exam (UBE)

40 states and other U.S. jurisdictions have adopted the UBE. Indiana, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania are the most recent additions. Could California be next? Maybe after the train wreck the California State Bar had in 2019. . .

Non-UBE Jurisdictions that have Adopted the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE)

Every single state and other U.S. jurisdiction that administers a bar exam incorporates the MBE, with the exception of Louisiana and Puerto Rico.

*These jurisdictions are not considered UBE jurisdictions, because part of their bar exam is jurisdiction specific. However, they do test all parts of the UBE (the MBE, MEE, and MPT) on their bar.
