Studying for the bar exam? Check out BarNow, NCBE’s affordable, online learning platform. We also have free study resources on our website.
This is the online version of the Comprehensive Guide to Bar Admission Requirements, a resource for bar admission requirements in all US jurisdictions.
A print version of the Guide, published annually by the National Conference of Bar Examiners in collaboration with the American Bar Association Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, is available for purchase at the NCBE Study Aids Store.
Although this online version is updated throughout the year, NCBE strongly advises consulting the jurisdiction’s bar admission agency directly (see the Directory) for the most current information.
Note that many jurisdictions are making emergency changes to rules, policies, and exam administrations in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Visit NCBE COVID-19 Updates for more information.
