Tennessee Adopts Uniform Bar Exam

The Tennessee Supreme Court today amended Rule 7 and adopted the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) as the key testing component for bar admission for aspiring Tennessee attorneys. The UBE is a nationwide test that has been adopted in 31 jurisdictions and allows test takers to transfer scores between states, greatly improving the mobility of Tennessee attorneys. The change comes after the Tennessee Board of Law Examiners filed a petition with the Supreme Court to adopt the change. Comments received by the Court were overwhelmingly supportive. The UBE will be given for the first time in Tennessee in February 2019.
