Announcement from the Colorado Supreme Court for July 2020 Bar Exam Applicants: Please see the announcement by the Court located here regarding the July 2020 bar exam.

The Colorado Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) consists of three parts: The Multistate Essay Exam (MEE), the Multistate Performance Test (MPT) and the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE). In order to pass the Colorado Bar Examination, an examinee must sit for both days of the bar examination and achieve a score 276 scale points out of a possible 400.

The Office of Attorney Admissions works with the Law Committee, which is part of the Board of Law Examiners, to administer two bar examinations each year, one in February and one in July.

The Law Committee is comprised of 11 volunteer members appointed by the Colorado Supreme Court. The Committee oversees the process of grading the written examination to ensure uniformity and quality of grading, and reviews and approves the standards that must be met to pass the written examination. See C.R.C.P. 202.3(2).
