Colorado Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE)

The Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (“MPRE” ) is an ethics exam administered by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (“NCBE” ) and not by the state of Colorado. The MPRE is administered separately from the Colorado bar exam and is generally tested three times each year in March, August, and November.

Please visit the Ethics Exam/MPRE page for general information about the MPRE and the MPRE application process.

MPRE for Colorado

Colorado requires an MPRE scaled score of 85 or greater for all applicants.  Colorado accepts MPRE scores that are achieved on an exam that was administered within two years of the filing of an application for admission to the Colorado Bar. (C.R.C.P. 201.5(3)). The MPRE requirement may be fulfilled before or after filing the bar exam application but must be completed prior to admission. Attorneys seeking Colorado Admission on Motion must meet the MPRE requirement.

Colorado MPRE Scoring Reciprocity/Transfer

Colorado accepts MPRE scaled scores that were achieved in another jurisdiction. MPRE scores must be transferred directly to the Colorado Board of Law Examiners from the testing agency.
