Arizona is a Uniform Bar Examination (UBE) jurisdiction, meaning it administers the three tests produced by the National Conference of Bar Examiners--the Multistate Bar Examination (MBE), the Multistate Essay Examination (MEE), and the Multistate Performance Test (MPT). For more details on the UBE, see http://www.ncbex.org/about-ncbe-exams/ube/

Those who passed the UBE in another UBE jurisdiction can be admitted without a years-of-practice requirement if sworn in within five years of UBE score release date. Otherwise, applicants must have practiced law for five of the last seven years and be admitted in a state with which Arizona has reciprocity.
The information for Arizona comes from the Supreme Court of Arizona's Certificate and Licensing Division--its website and its response to our survey. Selected information comes from the National Conference of Bar Examiners' Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements and annual statistical report.
