A total scaled score of 264 or higher is required to pass the Indiana Bar Exam.

Admission on Motion

A member in good standing of another U.S. state or territory may be admitted on motion in Indiana if the applicant has engaged in the active practice of law for five of the seven years preceding application. Additional requirements apply. 

Admission by UBE Score Transfer

Applicants who have obtained a scaled score of at least 264 on a Uniform Bar Exam taken in another jurisdiction within the preceding five years may apply for admission based on that score. Additional requirements apply.

Applicants may take the exam prior to graduation if they have fewer than five credit hours to complete, are within 100 days of graduation, have completed two hours of Professional Responsibility, and have completed all requirements for admission to the bar.

Applicants for admission to the Indiana bar based on the UBE, whether administered in Indiana or in another jurisdiction, shall also be required to complete a jurisdiction-specific component, the Indiana Law Course, within six months after admission to the Indiana bar.
