In March 2011, Idaho adopted the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE). Idaho administered the first UBE during the February 2012 bar examination. On June 1, 2023, the Idaho Supreme Court entered an Order setting Idaho’s UBE passing score at 270, effective for the July 2023 bar exam. Applicants who took an earlier bar exam must have earned Idaho’s previous passing score of 272.
Please contact the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE; ncbex.org) to request that an official UBE score transcript be sent directly to the Idaho State Bar. UBE score transfer applicants must also have already taken the MPRE, or must take the MPRE within two MPRE administrations of applying to transfer their UBE score to Idaho. The MPRE is administered in March, August and November. Idaho’s MPRE passing score is 85. Please contact the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE; ncbex.org) for more information about the MPRE, or to request that an official MPRE score transcript be sent directly to the Idaho State Bar.
