To be admitted in New York State, you must also successfully complete the online New York Law Course (NYLC) and pass the New York State Law Exam (NYLE).

You must successfully complete the New York Law Course (NYLC) & register for the New York Law Exam ONE MONTH BEFORE the date of the New York Law Exam. So, you should strongly consider completing the New York Law Course during these next few weeks to sit for the March 16th exam. The next exam is during bar review!

New York Law Course:

The NYLE is a fifty (50) question multiple choice examination given at noon using Examsoft. It is an open book examination based on the New York Law Course. A passing score is thirty (30) out of fifty (50) correct. Scores are released within a few weeks after the NYLE.

New York Law Exam registration deadlines:

Registration Deadlines for NYLE (MUST complete NYLC before registering for the NYLE):

The December 14th exam may be too late to be admitted in January in the Third and Fourth Departments (almost all of upstate NY)

Registration is on the same site that you register for the NYLC, which you must complete prior to being eligible to register for the NYLE. You may take the NYLC and NYLE up to one year before and three years after the first time you sit for the second day of the UBE. But you will not be admitted to practice until you finished all these requirements.

In addition, you must pass the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) with a score of 85 within three years of admission.
