The Connecticut Bar Exam will require a minimum scaled combined score of 266 points out of 400 points to pass. The MBE is weighted at 50% of the score, the Essays are weighted at 30%, and the MPTs are weighted at 20%.
A minimum passing scaled score is 80 or higher.
MPRE Policy: the acceptable MPRE score may not be earned more than four years prior to or one year following application for admission.
Connecticut permits admission on motion, without examination, for applicants who have practiced for five of the preceding ten years, are admitted to practice in at least one reciprocal jurisdiction, and have graduated from an ABA-approved law school. As of September 5, 2016, an applicant who sat for the UBE in another jurisdiction may transfer the score earned on that examination to Connecticut in lieu of taking the UBE in Connecticut. An applicant has three years from the date of an exam to transfer the UBE score to Connecticut.
Connecticut will accept MBE scores from other jurisdictions and from prior administrations of the examination, if the applicant was successful on each examination for which the score was originally achieved. An applicant who elects to transfer an MBE score to Connecticut from a concurrent or prior administration of the exam may do so for purposes of local admission to the Connecticut bar. In order to attain a UBE score, an applicant must sit for the MPT, MEE and MBE in Connecticut during the same administration of the exam.
CO does not accept MBE transfer scores.
