The New York Law Exam (NYLE) is a two-hour online exam administered by the New York State Board of Law Examiners. The exam is designed to test a candidate's knowledge of New York law and procedure, which is a requirement for admission to the bar in the state of New York.
The NYLE covers a range of topics related to New York law, including civil procedure, criminal procedure, evidence, real property, torts, contracts, and professional responsibility. The exam consists of 50 multiple-choice questions, and candidates are required to achieve a passing score of 60% or higher.
In order to take the NYLE, candidates must be approved to sit for the New York bar exam and must have completed the New York Law Course, which is a series of online lectures and assessments designed to familiarise candidates with New York law and procedure.
The NYLE is typically taken after a candidate has passed the Uniform Bar Exam (UBE) and the Multistate Professional Responsibility Exam (MPRE), and is a requirement for admission to the bar in the state of New York. Candidates are encouraged to study New York law and procedure in preparation for the exam, and may consult study materials and resources provided by the New York State Board of Law Examiners.
