The Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) is a test administered by the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE), with the purpose of testing knowledge and skills that every lawyer should be able to demonstrate prior to becoming licensed to practice law. The test is composed of the Multistate Essay Examination (MEE), two Multistate Performance Test (MPT) tasks, and the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE). It is uniformly administered, graded, and scored by each of the participating jurisdictions and results in a portable score that can be transferred to other UBE jurisdictions.
The subjects tested in the exam include Constitutional Law, Contracts, Evidence, Federal Civil Procedure, Business Associations, Conflict of laws, Real Property, Torts, Trusts and Estates, Family Law, Secured Transactions, Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure. The test is administered twice a year and consists of two arduous days of examination. Only 38 percent of the candidates for the February 2018 New York administration passed the exam.
