The majority of our graduates at the University of Wyoming College of Law take either the Wyoming or Colorado bar exam (or both concurrently). Therefore, below you will find information about admission by examination in those jurisdictions. For additional info or info on other jurisdictions' bar admission requirements, please refer to the Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements.
State of Wyoming Bar Admission
Visit the Wyoming State Bar website to obtain Wyoming Bar Exam Information (click on Admissions on the toolbar on the left-hand side of the page). You may also contact the Admissions Director, Nancy Shore, for more information at (307) 632-9061 or email@example.com.
Some states, including Wyoming (but not Colorado) use the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBEX) to complete the background check and character & fitness portion of the bar application. If you are applying to take the bar exam in Wyoming, in addition to completing the Application for Admission and other required forms on the Wyoming State Bar's website, you will also have to complete the NCBE Character and Fitness Application on the NCBEX website. Click on the link for the NCBE Character and Fitness Application, then on the right-hand side of the page, click on "Create an Account."
State of Colorado Bar Admission
If you are taking a different jurisdiction's bar exam, not Colorado or Wyoming, please visit that particular jurisdiction's board of law examiner's website. If you are not sure where to go, please refer to the National Conference of Bar Examiners publication: the Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements. The Comprehensive Guide is updated by the NCBEX each year and contains the most accurate and up-to-date information about bar admission requirements.
In addition to the bar exam, you will need to take and pass the Multistate Professional Responsibility Examination (MPRE), which measures the examinee's knowledge and understanding of established standards related to a lawyer's professional conduct. For information on deadlines, test dates and locations of test centers, please see the NCBEX website and/or read the NCBEX's publication on MPRE information which can be found on the NCBEX website here: http://www.ncbex.org/multistate-tests/mpre/.
