IBA: MPRE Prep Free

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

For ten years now a passing score on the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) has been required for admission to the Indiana Bar. Essentially the ethics exam for those seeking to practice law; the MPRE is administered three times a year, and as always the Indianapolis Bar Association’s IndyBar Review is helping student members of the Association prepare with a MPRE Review Course scheduled for Friday, February 18 from 1:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Bar office.

Taught by Jake Bradley of Frost Brown Todd, the review course provides those attending with insight into how the exam is scored and a logical review of the material tested.

According to the National Board of Law Examiners, the MPRE is based on the law governing the conduct of lawyers, including the disciplinary rules of professional conduct currently articulated in the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, the ABA Model Code of Judicial Conduct, and controlling constitutional decisions and generally accepted principles established in leading federal and state cases and in procedural and evidentiary rules.

The MPRE consists of 60 multiple-choice questions. There are 50 scored questions and 10 nonscored pretest questions.

Do law students successfully pass the MPRE without a review course? Yes, but IndyBar offers a free MPRE Review Course to those pre-enrolled in its full Bar Review Course. To over prepare would be a waste of time, but investing three hours on a Friday afternoon to gain insight from the Bar Association is like being handed a free insurance policy.

Those interested in attending may register online at www.indybar.org or contact Kari Hartman at khartman@indybar.org for more information.•
