The Bar Exam

The Committee on Bar Admissions administers a written examination, which consists of two parts: A nine-part written examination (Part I) and the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (Part II). Part I is primarily essay and may include multiple-choice questions. The Committee has released sample multiple-choice questions. Part II, the MPRE, is administered by the National Conference of Bar Examiners.

Newly-Enacted Legislation:
It is the policy of the Committee that newly-enacted legislation-including amendments to existing federal and state statutes, and amendments, additions, and deletions affecting federal and state rules of procedure and evidence - will be tested six months after the effective date of the legislation, as opposed to the date of enactment.

Scoring


Part I: Applicants who earn a total weighted score of at least 650 out of a possible 900 will pass.

The grading process is carried out by members of the Louisiana Bar who have been appointed by the Louisiana Supreme Court. Strict examinee anonymity is maintained and several measures are taken to insure uniformity and fairness in the grading process.

The multi-part written examination consists of nine separate examinations. Examinations 1 - 5 are "Code" examinations; examinations 6 - 9 are "Non-Code" examinations. Each subject is worth 100 raw points. Code subjects carry twice the weight of Non-Code subjects. The five Code subjects are Code I, Code II, Code III, La. Code of Civil Procedure and Torts. The four Non-Code subjects are Business Entities and Negotiable Instruments, Constitutional Law, Criminal Law and Procedure, and Federal Jurisdiction and Procedure.
