Nebraska MPRE Score Requirement
Nebraska 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 Nebraska.
Scoring/Grading and Results
In order to pass the Nebraska bar exam, you must score at least 270. This equates to 135, based on the MBE’s 200-point scale. The scores of the exam sections are weighted as follows: MPT 20%, MEE 30%, and MBE 50%. Nebraska makes bar exam results available approximately five or six weeks after the exam.
You may obtain admission to the Nebraska bar by motion, without sitting for the Nebraska bar exam, if: 1) you have attained the applicable educational qualifications; and 2) you fulfill one of these other requirements, which generally include:
- admission to practice law in any other United States jurisdiction or a jurisdiction where the Common Law of England is the basis of jurisprudence, and passing the requisite professional exams;
- licensure in, and actively practicing law in, any other United States jurisdiction for five of the past seven years; or
- in another jurisdiction, receiving the UBE passing score required by Nebraska.

Heidi was unsuccessful twice with Barbri before enrolling in tutoring.
“Well, the one thing I did do differently was not use Barbri… I used the AmeriBar materials and had the one-on-one tutorial for the essays. I do think it probably made a large difference in how I handled and approached my essays.”
