If you are taking the bar exam next year, the first deadline for the November 2, 2013, MPRE (Model Professional Responsibility Exam) is Tuesday, September 10, with a late deadline of September 26, 2013. Most states require students to pass the MPRE in order to be admitted to practice law. Students may take the MPRE before the end of their third year, and Duke 3Ls often take it in November or in April (it is also offered in August shortly after the full bar exam). Please note: some states require you to take the MPRE before taking the rest of the bar, so be sure to check your state’s requirements. Register at http://www.ncbex.org/multistate-tests/mpre/ and to get more information. Be sure to attend the Law School’s bar exam info session on Tuesday, September 17, 2013.
