Colorado MPRE Score Requirement
Colorado requires bar exam applicants to pass the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (“MPRE”). You must score 85 or higher on the MPRE in order to pass in Colorado.
Scoring/Grading and Results
In order to pass the Colorado bar exam, you must score at least 276. This equates to 138, based on the MBE’s 200-point scale. The scores of the exam sections are weighted as follows: MEE 30%, MPT 20%, and MBE 50%. Ordinarily, the Colorado Board of Law Examiners provide the Colorado bar exam results nine weeks after administering the Colorado bar exam.
Under certain circumstances, Colorado allows for admission without examination for applicants having a first law degree from an American Bar Association approved law school who either: 1) are lawyers admitted to the bar of a reciprocal jurisdiction; or 2) transfer a UBE score of at least 276 from another jurisdiction.

Jennifer was unsuccessful twice with Barbri before enrolling in an AmeriBar course.
“I felt so prepared and so well-versed in every area of the law for the exam. I never felt that way with Barbri the first couple of times I took it. I can’t say enough about how well-prepared I felt and how relieved I was after failing twice to come back and just nail it after six years of absence from the law.”
