The Uniform Bar Exam in New York

As many by now are aware, beginning in July of this year New York will no longer be administering a state-specific bar exam, and will instead be switching over to the Uniform Bar Exam. The Uniform Bar Exam consists of 3 components: the Multistate Bar Exam, the Multistate Essay Essay, and the Multistate Performance Test.

In addition to passing the Uniform Bar Exam, candidates will be required to take a 50-question open-book exam covering New York specific law, and this is called the New York Law Exam. This exam will not be taken at the same time as the Uniform Bar Exam, but admission in New York will require that a candidate pass the New York Law Exam in addition to the Uniform Bar Exam.

The New York Board of Law Examiners has posted a content outline for this exam, and shortly it will be posting an in- depth review of the material needed for the exam. The content outline is below:
