Wisconsin MPRE & Wisconsin MPRE Reciprocity
The state of Wisconsin does not require a MPRE score to receive a pass or admission to practice law in the state. The Wisconsin MPRE is not required because Wisconsin bar reciprocity rules do not require it. This means a bar applicant can achieve a passage rate on the MPRE without taking it at all.
