Minnesota 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 Minnesota. The MPRE is administered separately from the Minnesota 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 Minnesota

Minnesota requires an MPRE scaled score of 85 or greater prior to being admitted in Minnesota. Applicants may sit for the Minnesota bar exam if they have not yet taken the MPRE, but these applicants must submit a passing MPRE score within 12 months of the application for admission.

Attorneys seeking Minnesota Admission on Motion must achieve an MPRE scaled score of 85 or greater.

Minnesota MPRE Scoring Reciprocity/Transfer

Minnesota accepts MPRE scaled scores that were achieved in another jurisdiction.
