MPRE Scores by State

The Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE) is a multiple choice exam that tests knowledge and understanding with regards to a lawyer’s professional conduct. The MPRE requires one to answer 60 questions in 120 minutes and covers twelve areas of a lawyer’s professional responsibilities. Almost every jurisdiction in the United States requires the MPRE: every state and the District of Columbia except Wisconsin and Puerto Rico. MPRE scores range from 50 (lowest) to 150 (highest).

Each state sets its own required score to be considered passing; the two exceptions are Connecticut and New Jersey, which will accept compilation of a professional responsibility court from law school instead of the exam. In the whole U.S., the lowest required score to pass is 75, while the highest score is 86.
