New Hampshire provides for admission by motion without examination of an attorney from a reciprocal jurisdiction who, among other things: 1) has been admitted to the reciprocal jurisdiction’s bar by passing its bar exam; or 2) has been practicing law therein for five of the past seven years. Relative to such admission, New Hampshire has requirements for an attorney from Maine or Vermont. Upon fulfilling other requirements, an applicant may obtain admission by motion based on their UBE score transferred 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.”
