To practice law in the United States, a law school graduate must gain admission to the Bar of the particular jurisdiction where he seeks to work. The requirements for Bar admission vary depending on the state, but generally mandate the passage of two exams: a two-hour multiple choice test on ethical standards known as the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE) and a separate exam administered by each jurisdiction known as the "Bar." The format and subjects tested on the Bar differ from state to state. In general, the exam lasts two days, with one day devoted to a standard 200-question multiple choice test known as the Multistate Bar Exam (MBE) and the other to state-specific essays. Some states, such as California, have three-day exams, and include a practical skills portion known as the "Performance Test."
