The Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements is a joint work product of the National Conference of Bar Examiners and the American Bar Association Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar.
A jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction snapshot of bar admission requirements
Since jurisdiction rules and policies change, NCBE strongly advises consulting the jurisdiction’s bar admission agency directly (see the Directory) for the most current information.
Supplemental remarks following the charts reflect an editorial decision to leave intact much of the information supplied by jurisdictions, forgoing some language consistencies. Information supplied by jurisdictions is intended to reflect Court rule, not situations under which waivers are granted, unless otherwise indicated.
