The NCBE's goal is to apply reasonable and uniform standards for admission to the practice of law. Visit the NCBE website

Create an NCBE Account
You can create a secure account and get an NCBE Number at www.ncbex.org/ncbe-number, and use your account to:
- Register for the MPRE
- Transfer or request a copy of your MBE, MPRE, or UBE score
- Access Character and Fitness Application
- Get an NCBE Number to apply for bar admission
Note: Requesting the NCBE number does not register you with your jurisdiction. You must comply with the application procedures and submit the required forms. Also, not all jurisdictions participate in NCBE's Character and Fitness Investigations service.
The Uniform Bar Examination (UBE)
The Uniform Bar Examination has been adopted by most jurisdictions. The date of the first administration of the UBE in each jurisdiction is listed on the UBE FAQs page.
Prepared and coordinated by the NCB Examiners, the UBE is composed of the Multistate Essay Examination
(MEE), two Multistate Performance Test
(MPT) tasks, and the Multistate Bar Examination
(MBE). It is uniformly administered, graded, and scored by user jurisdictions, which may add supplemental components.
