Alabama permits admission on motion, without examination, for applicants who have practiced for five of the preceding six years, are admitted to practice and are a member in good standing in at least one U.S. jurisdiction, have received a J.D. or L.L.B. from an ABA-approved law school, and have not taken and failed the Alabama bar within the 10 years prior to their application. As of 2014, an applicant who sat for the UBE in another jurisdiction may transfer the score earned on that examination to Alabama in lieu of taking the UBE in Alabama. An applicant must transfer the score to Alabama and receive certification of the Committee on Character & Fitness within twenty-five (25) months of the date of administration of the UBE in which the score was earned. The candidate must have also received a minimum score of 75 on the MPRE.
An applicant for admission in Alabama must also take and complete the Course on Alabama Law. Before being admitted to the practice of law in Alabama, all applicants shall complete a course on Alabama law, the content and delivery of which shall be determined by the Board of Bar Examiners.
