The New York Bar Exam is changing.
On Tuesday, May 5, 2015, Jonathan Lippman, Chief Judge of the State of New York and Chief Judge of the Court of Appeals of New York announced the decision of the Court to adopt three changes to the New York admissions process effective with the July 2016 Bar Exam.
- Adopt the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE). The UBE consists of the MBE, 6 MEE essays, and 2 MPTs.
- Require New York candidates to complete a mandatory online course on New York law known as the "New York Law Course" (NYLC)
- Require applicants to complete and pass an online, 50-question, multiple choice exam testing New York law, known as the "New York Law Exam" (NYLE).
