New York will administer the Uniform Bar Exam starting with the July 2016 exam. A candidate seeking admission in New York must take the New York Law Course (NYLC), and an on-line, open book exam on New York specific law, known as the New York Law Exam (NYLE). Candidates must take and pass the NYLE, and take and pass the MPRE, in addition to earning a score satisfying New York’s passing score on the UBE, prior to be being certified to one of New York's Appellate Division departments for a character and fitness investigation.
Effective with the February 2018 administration, the Contracts subject matter outline for the MBE and MEE will be slightly reordered and revised. No new topics will be added. The primary purpose of the revisions is to provide examinees with more detailed and organized information about the scope of coverage of Contracts questions. For the revised subject matter outlines, see the 2018 MBE Subject Matter Outline and MEE Subject Matter Outline.
