General Information

Bar admission is regulated by each state's board of bar examiners. Bar requirements are state-specific and vary from state to state, so it's important to check the requirements for the jurisdiction in which you plan to practice law.

About the Multistate Exams

The National Conference of Bar Examiners (NCBE) produces five multistate bar examinations. Each state determines which of the tests it will use. States may also have a state-specific component.
