UW School of Law is committed to supporting students with their bar preparations. As a part of our bar prep program, UW Law hosts workshops and provides resources for bar takers throughout the year. This includes offering a course designed to give students an early start on bar preparation. Additionally, the Washington State Bar Association visits our campus annually to share application information with students.

The Washington State Bar Association administers the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE). The UBE consists of three components: the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE), the Multistate Essay Exam (MEE), and the Multistate Performance Test (MPT).
