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 Kansas. The MPRE is administered separately from the Kansas 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.
Kansas requires an MPRE scaled score of 80 or greater prior to admission. Failing to successfully complete the MPRE within 180 days of the date of the bar exam will negate the results of the bar exam and require reapplication for admission and retaking the bar exam, including repayment of all fees. (Supreme Court Rules, 709(n)). There is no time limit for which an MPRE score may be achieved before the Kansas bar exam.
There is no MPRE requirement for Kansas Admission on Motion.
Kansas accepts MPRE scores of 80 or greater that were achieved in another jurisdiction.
