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 Florida. The MPRE is administered separately from the Florida 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.
Florida requires an MPRE scaled score of 80 or greater. Applicants must achieve the passing MPRE score within 25 months of passing any other part of the Florida bar exam. (Rules of the Supreme Court Relating to Admissions to the Bar, Rule 4-18.1). The MPRE may be taken prior to graduation from law school. (Rule 4-13).
Florida accepts MPRE scaled scores that were achieved in another jurisdiction. Score transfers must be conducted through the NCBE.
