The MEE and MPT scores are scaled to the MBE, with the MBE weighted 50%, the MEE 30% and the MPT 20%. The scores are combined to determine if the applicant has achieved a passing score of 280.
Upon motion, the State of Alaska allows for admission to the Alaska Bar without sitting for the bar exam, upon fulfillment of several conditions that include:
If an applicant fulfills all of the other requirements and has attained a scaled UBE score of at least 280 in another jurisdiction within 5 years before the date of their application to the Alaska Bar Association, then the applicant may be admitted to the Alaska Bar Association.
Alaska has an admission without examination rule, with reciprocity provisions, for attorney applicants. Applicant must have taken and passed a UBE exam and engaged in the active practice of law in one or more states, territories, or D.C. for five of the seven years immediately preceding the date of application. The applicant must also have passed the MPRE and meet other admission requirements.
Applicants may transfer a UBE score of 280 or higher earned within 5 years preceding the date of application.
Alaska does not accept a MBE score from an exam taken in another jurisdiction.
Everyone can benefit from having a personal bar exam coach. Whether you are a first-time test taker or repeating the exam, having a personal bar exam coach to walk you through the process will ensure that you do not waste valuable time and energy.
Other bar review courses offer private tutoring with a “licensed attorney”. But simply being a “licensed attorney” does not qualify someone to help you pass the bar exam. What you really need is someone with decades of experience coaching students for success on the bar exam.
