Upcoming Exam (July 2022)

Application Deadlines for July 2022 Exam

The Maine Board of Bar Examiners will receive all applications for the July 2022 bar exam up until 5:00 pm on May 20, 2022. There will be no option to pay a late fee and submit an application after May 20, 2022. This change is made pursuant to Maine Bar Admission Rule 6(3)(b) and applies to all exam applications and testing accommodation applications.

The July 2022 Maine Bar Examination will be administered in-person on July 26 – 27, 2022 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in South Portland, Maine. Our office will begin accepting applications on March 15, 2022 for the July 2022 exam.

CHANGE IN MAINE UBE CUT SCORE

In accordance with Maine Bar Admissions Rule 10(c)(3), the Maine Board of Bar Examiners, at its January 2020 Board meeting, set the passing scaled score for future bar examinations at 270. The reduction in cut score is prospective only.

Maine will accept concurrent applications from examinees sitting for the UBE in another jurisdiction. Applicants must still apply as if taking the Maine bar exam, but do not have to sit in Maine if sitting for an exam in another UBE jurisdiction (for the same exam administration). In order to apply concurrently with another UBE jurisdiction, please go to https://mainebarexaminers.org/exam-forms/exam-application-forms/and complete a Bar Exam application.
