Alaska Bar Exam MBE Reciprocity
Alaska does not accept MBE scores from other jurisdictions.  Therefore, applicants must sit for the MBE while taking the Alaska Bar Exam.
Alaska Bar Reciprocity

To be eligible for admission without taking the Alaska Bar Exam (commonly called reciprocity), the applicant must have taken and passed a written bar exam in a reciprocal state or D.C. and have engaged in the active practice of law for 5 of the 7 years in any jurisdiction preceding application. The applicant must also have passed the MPRE and meet other admission requirements.  Otherwise, all applicants must take the Alaska Bar Exam.

Testimonials

"I love your course. I've recommended it to several other students, and I will continue to recommend it."

---------

"The lectures were concise and focused on the important points, which allowed me to learn the new areas of law with the least effort, and efficiently refresh my memory on the other areas."

---------

"[The course is] more condensed and focused on the basics of the black letter law, and on helping students develop a test writing strategy."

---------

"I really liked it when the instructor did more than teach the subject as it would be taught in law school. I liked when they gave tips about the way questions on previous tests were handled and advice for choosing the right answer if the question was confusing."

---------

"I was glad to find this review to help me prepare for the exam and refresh my memory . . . at a price that did not break the bank."
