The Bar Exam

Bar Exams are administered nation-wide in February and July. Most law school graduates take the July exam following graduation. The bar exam usually consists of one day of state law and one day for the Multistate Bar Examination, although some states have a three day exam. Bar admissions requirements differ from state to state and as a result, students are advised to visit the web site of their state bar office for the most accurate information. For information on various exams and links to most state bar authorities, visit the web site of the National Conference of Bar Examiners. Booklets with the addresses and phone numbers of state bar examiner offices are available for you to consult in the Registrar's Office.

First-year students who think they may practice in another state should contact the bar examiners in that state as soon as possible to determine the registration requirements.
