Kansas MPRE Score Requirement

Kansas requires bar exam applicants to pass the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (“MPRE”). You must score 80 or higher on the MPRE in order to pass in Kansas.

Scoring/Grading and Results

In order to pass the Kansas bar exam, you must score at least 266. This equates to 133, 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%. Kansas makes bar exam results available approximately six weeks after the exam.


Kansas permits admission on motion without examination based on reciprocity. To qualify for such admission, an attorney must prove fulfillment of several criteria, some of which include: 1) having an active law license in another jurisdiction that permits mutuality of admission without examination for members of the Kansas bar; and 2) having actively practiced law for five of the past seven years.

A UBE score of 266 attained in another jurisdiction within the prior 36 months may apply to obtain admission to the Kansas state bar without sitting for the Kansas bar exam.

Jennifer failed twice with Barbri. “I felt so prepared…for the exam. I never felt that way the first couple of times. I can’t say enough about how I felt after failing twice to come back and just nail it after six years of absence from the law.”
