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 New Mexico. The MPRE is administered separately from the New Mexico 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.
New Mexico requires an MPRE scaled score of 80 or greater. Under the current rule, New Mexico will accept scores regardless of when an applicant took the MPRE.
New Mexico accepts MPRE scaled scores of 80 or greater that were achieved in another jurisdiction. Please visit the New Mexico Board of Bar Examines’ Website for more information.
