Bar Exam and Certification

The Law School’s Office of Registration Services is responsible for the completion of all forms relating to bar examinations and certifications of character and fitness for admission to practice law.  In addition to a bar examination, there are character, fitness, and other qualifications for admission to the bar in every U.S. jurisdiction. Applicants are encouraged to determine the requirements for any jurisdiction in which they intend to seek admission by contacting the jurisdiction and reviewing the National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admissions website. Addresses for all relevant agencies are available through the NCBE
