- February 22-23, 2022
The Arizona Bar Exam will require a minimum scaled combined score of 273 points out of 400 points to pass. The MBE® is weighted at 50% of the score, the Essays are weighted at 30%, and the MPT®s are weighted at 20%.
A minimum passing scaled score is 85 or higher.
MPRE® Policy: The acceptable MPRE® score must be earned within 2 years before the successful bar examination or within the time frame for taking the oath of admission.
The Arizona Supreme Court allows admission on motion, allowing eligible candidates to bypass the examination if you have actively practiced law for three of the prior five years, you were admitted by bar examination either in a reciprocal jurisdiction and/or another jurisdiction (If admission by bar examination is in a non-reciprocal jurisdiction, then “active practice” must have occurred in reciprocal jurisdictions), and you have earned a minimum score of 85 on the MPRE® during the last 5 years. A list of reciprocal and non-reciprocal jurisdictions can be found here.
An applicant for admission in Arizona must also take and complete the Course on Arizona Law.
