CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — The New Hampshire Supreme Court is adopting a uniform bar exam that would qualify lawyers who pass it in New Hampshire to practice in 13 states, including North Dakota.

The Granite State is the first state in the Northeast to adopt the uniform exam. The first uniform exam will be administered in February.

The state will begin in August to accept bar admission applications from those who passed it in the 13 states that already administer the exam.

The other states are Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.

Supreme Court Chief Justice Linda Dalianis says the exam retains New Hampshire's high standards while offering law school graduates more flexibility in finding employment.
