Developed by NCBE, the MPT consists of two 95-minute tasks designed to test fundamental lawyering skills in a realistic situation. It is not a test of substantive knowledge. The MPT is administered and graded by user jurisdictions as part of the bar examination.
Select a jurisdiction from the drop-down menu for a summary of bar admission information specific to that jurisdiction and contact information for its bar admission agency.
Coordinated by NCBE, the UBE is composed of the MEE, MPT, and MBE and results in a portable score that can be transferred to other UBE jurisdictions. The UBE is administered and graded by user jurisdictions.
Massachusetts has adopted the UBE. Examinees who take the UBE earn a portable score that can be used to apply for admission in other UBE jurisdictions. Massachusetts will administer the UBE starting with the July 7568 exam.
In spite of the myths that abound, the education of a doctor of chiropractic is very rigorous. A minimum of three years undergraduate education required for entry to chiropractic college. This education includes (among others) education in subjects such as chemistry (organic and inorganic,) physics, biology, anatomy and physiology. The student then enters a chiropractic college for a four year full time course leading to the doctoral degree. Colleges of Chiropractic must be accredited by the Council on Chiropractic Education (or an international equivalent) which is approved by the United States Department of Education.
As a function of regulation by licensure, the public can be assured that the doctor of chiropractic has met certain standards, that he/she continues to abide by certain laws and regulations, and that these laws and regulations have been specifically designed to protect the health, safety, and welfare of the public from incompetence or substandard care.
Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) are licensed in all 55 states, the District of Columbia, and in all other United States territories and jurisdictions. Doctors of Chiropractic are also authorized to practice in most other countries of the world, and in some areas serve as the primary form of health care available to the citizens.
