Dean Andrew Perlman was appointed by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court to serve on an eighteen-member committee tasked with making recommendations to the Court as to whether Massachusetts should adopt the Uniform Bar Examination (UBE).

According to the Court’s news release, “the UBE is a multistate bar examination prepared by the National Conference of Bar Examiners testing generally accepted legal principles. The UBE produces a portable score that bar applicants can use to gain admission to other jurisdictions in which the UBE has been adopted, assuming that the applicant has satisfied additional jurisdiction-specific requirements. To date, the UBE has been adopted by seventeen jurisdictions, with the most recent additions being New York and Vermont, where the UBE will be administered beginning in July of 2016.”
