    General Bar Information

    Your first step in preparing to take a Bar Exam is to determine which State Bar you will take. In order to assess the differences between each State Bar the following web site should be helpful:

    • National Conference of Bar Examiners
      To get information about bar admission requirements or to apply for admission to the bar, contact the appropriate jurisdiction below. Most jurisdictions have information available via their own websites found on the Website links.

    • ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar
      In order to obtain a license to practice law, almost all law school graduates must apply for bar admission through a state board of bar examiners. This board is usually an agency of the highest state court in the jurisdiction, but occasionally the board is connected more closely to the state's bar association. The criteria for eligibility to take the bar examination or to otherwise qualify for bar admission are set by each state, not by the ABA or the Council for the Section of Legal Education.
