MPRE® Policy: the acceptable MPRE® score may not be earned more than 25 months prior to or following a passed Alabama Bar Examination.
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.
