The Rhode Island Bar Exam

The Rhode Island Bar Exam assesses whether or not a candidate is competent to practice law in Rhode Island.

For its bar exam, Rhode Island requires completion of three parts.

The first portion of the Rhode Island Bar Exam is the Multistate Bar Examination, or the MBE. The MBE is administered twice annually; once on the last Wednesday in February and again on the last Wednesday in July.

The second portion of the Rhode Island Bar Exam tests candidates on unique aspects of Rhode Island's laws. The state specific portion of the Rhode Island bar examination is administered in essay format.

The third portion of the Rhode Island Bar Exam is the Multistate Performance Test, or the MPT. The MPT is designed to test the examinee's ability to use fundamental lawyering skills in a realistic situation. The MPT evaluates the ability to complete a task that a beginning lawyer should be able to accomplish. Applicants should contact the bar admissions agency in the jurisdiction to determine whether one or more MPTs are administered as part of the jurisdiction’s bar examination.
